Honey Glazed Turkey For Thanksgiving


November is here and for a lot of people that means it’s time to get ready for Thanksgiving.  People share recipes, try different things when they’re cooking and use different methods to create a new taste.  Honey glazed ham of course is a popular choice and has been done for many years.  However, honey glazed turkey is something a little different.  It provides a unique taste to the thanksgiving staple. Taste a new flavor with a sweet and spicy honey glaze.  Here’s a recipe we recommend from tasteofhome.com.

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 3-3/4 hours Yield: 14 Servings 25


  • 1 turkey (14 to 16 pounds)
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup honey (We recommend your favorite Marshall’s Honey product or trying something different for a new flavor)
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cooking Instructions

In a small bowl, mix glaze ingredients; brush over turkey. Bake 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours longer or until a thermometer inserted in thigh reads 180°. Baste occasionally with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.)

Along with the turkey, honey can be used for a variety of other foods on Thanksgiving.  Rolls, biscuits topped with honey are a perfect sweet addition to the meal.  Of course, honey can be used in different pies like ginger-honey pumpkin pie or honey pecan pie.  Even applying it to vegetables is a nice addition like honey mustard green beans.
