What Can You Serve With Turkey?

To Baste or not to baste Turkey?

Basting the turkey is up to you, some say do, others say don't. I do,  except in the middle of the night. Let's face it, I'm not getting up all overs of the night to soak my turkey in broth without even a thank you. (lol) It's just not necessary. It's going to be fantastic either way.. but make sure to save the broth (pan drippings) for our incredible Turkey Gravy!
