Coating for Your Thanksgiving Turkey

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Poultry, Holiday, Condiments

 Ingredients List

  • 1/3 c Paprika
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion; dried
  • Pepper
  • Water; to make paste


This will do about a 13-15lb turkey. Other seasonings are to taste. I
never did measure. This is a coating you can put on all poultry before
roasting. Basically you make a paste of the above ingredients. It should
be the consistencey of finger paintthick and not runny. If you have kids,
put them in old clothes and let them help. I smear it in and out of the
cavity. Notice that this does not have any Gravy Master or oil...both
unneeeded in my opinion. The skin cooks nice and crisp. Remember to baste
during cooking. BTW, use this in the Nuke too.
Sometimes we do a turkey or chicken in there when we have lot's of other
baking/roasting to do. When Howard was in training to be a Chef, he
brought home a bunch of fellow students for dinner. Not one of them even
came close to guessing that the turkey had been made in the nuke. I hope
all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
