Balsamic Turkey with Apple Stuffing. Grain free!

This time of year can get a bit crazy as we approach the busy Holiday season and Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away!

So I wanted to be sure to share some Thanksgiving recipes over the coming weeks so you'll have all you need for a delicious and healthy Holiday. 

Here is a lovely Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe that we are making for our Thanksgiving Dinner with Todd's parents - sure to become a favorite in our house and yours!

Enjoy. 🙂

Balsamic Roasted Turkey With Apple Stuffing 

Serves: 12


1 turkey (10-15 pounds)

½ cup olive oil, butter, or ghee

½ cup balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon Pink Himalayan salt

10 honey crisp apples, peeled, cored and sliced in half

6 sprigs rosemary

cracked pepper to taste


Remove the gizzards (save in refrigerator for gravy)

Rinse bird well and pat dry with paper towels; then tie legs together with string

Place turkey breast side up in a roasting pan, then put rosemary inside turkey

Drizzle turkey with oil, melted butter, or ghee and balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle with salt and pepper

Wedge apples around roasting pan to prop turkey up evenly – then place 2 apple halves in cavity of turkey

Place roasting pan with turkey, apples, etc. in oven on lowest rack

Roast at 325°, 15 minutes per pound; a 15 pound turkey requires 3 hours and 45 minutes

If skin begins to brown too soon, cover with foil

To check temperature stick a meat thermometer deep into thigh; until 175° it is safely done

Remove turkey from oven and allow to sit for 20 to 30 minutes before carving.

Happy Eating!
