  1. Turkey with Orange-Honey Glaze Recipe photo by Taste of Home In a small bowl, combine the sage, salt, pepper and thyme; mix well. Rub 2 teaspoons inside the turkey; set remainder aside. Place orange inside turkey. Skewer openings and tie drumsticks together. Place on a rack in a roasting pan. Combine remaining sage mixture with butter; brush over turkey. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 5-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting every 30 minutes. When the turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with foil.

  2. In a saucepan, combine remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Brush over turkey. Continue to bake, uncovered, 30 minutes to 1 hour longer or until thermometer reads 185°, brushing with the glaze occasionally. Remove from the oven; cover and let stand 20 minutes before carving. Thicken pan juices for gravy if desired. Yield: 16-18 servings.
