Bacon Wrapped Roast Turkey with Sausage-Apple Stuffing

Bacon Wrapped Roast Turkey with Sausage-Apple Stuffing

I hope that everyone had a fun filled Easter weekend.  When we were growing up, every big holiday get together consisted of a large turkey dinner.  I am sure that it is no surprise that the turkey recipe that I am sharing with you contains bacon as a key ingredient! 🙂

Now, we didn’t always have a bacon wrapped turkey, but once I was introduced to the deliciousness of bacon and turkey, I was hooked and I never looked back.  I have shared this recipe with everyone who asks me about the best way to cook a turkey.  What I love about it is that you never have to baste your turkey, as the bacon provides the ongoing moisture that is necessary for a perfect turkey dinner.

Sticky Slow-Cooker Chicken

Well here is a surprise for everyone, this entry doesn’t include any bacon!

Now that the cooler weather is here, I find myself using my slow cooker more often.  There is something so satisfying about coming home after a long day of work and smelling your dinner when you walk through the door. I also like to use it on the weekends as it frees up the oven for important things like baking cookies 🙂
