Why I Love This Recipe

I have been making this for about 20 years, from a recipe scribbled on the back of an envelope. This morning on Good Day LA , Christina Ferrare re-united with Steve Edwards featured her Fresh Herb Turkey.

Here is the marinade;

Los Angeles -- Cristina's Marinade

Ingredients You'll Need

1c. Dijon Mustard
1 c. Olive Oil
3/4 c. Lemon juice
1/2 c. Soy Sauce
3 sprigs Chopped Rosemary
3 sprigs Chopped Thyme
1/4 c. Chopped Sage
1/4 c. Chopped Oregano


Sprinkle the inside of the turkey with Spike or S&P, and stuff it with the leftover lemons.

I put the turkey in a roaster with a lid and bake it 350 degrees for 15 minutes a pound.

When the time is up.

Let it sit for about 20 minutes, if you want to eat it right away.

Actually this is a good make ahead turkey.

Strain off the fat and make gravy.

In the past I have not necessarily splurged for all the herbs, but just used parsley.

I couldn't tell the difference!
