Cider-Glazed Bacon Wrapped Turkey

Jaidi and Justin Clayton's Cider glazed Bacon Wrapped Turkey


1 quart Apple cider

1 cup Butter


1 pound Bacon




Stuffing (if desired)

Here's what we did for the turkey:

Melt 2 sticks of butter in 1 quart of apple cider.  Place cheesecloth in mixture. Keep in warm so the butter stays melted.  

Prepare turkey by rinsing, drying and stuffing if applicable.  Dice carrots, onions and celery and place in bottom of roasting pan.  Place turkey in pan on roasting rack (alternately, you can roll aluminum foil in rolls and place turkey on this As a Rack).  

Wrap turkey with bacon.  You can do a weave on top or just coat the turkey with bacon all over the top.  The legs, wings breast, anything that sits on top.  

Take cheesecloth out of the apple cider butter mixture and place on top of the bacon and turkey.  

Place in oven legs first for 30 minutes at 450 then reduce the oven temp to 350 and cook until done to 165 degrees. 

Baste the turkey with the apple cider butter mixture every 30 minutes and rotate the paneach time til the turkey is done cooking, about 4 hours.  

This can also be done on just a turkey breast.  

It's super good and we highly recommend it!
