Roast Turkey with Drambuie Stuffing

No recipe image available.Drambuie is a honey and herb-flavored liqueur that pairs perfectly with turkey.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (12-pound) whole turkey, cleaned and patted dry inside and out
3/4 cup Drambuie - divided use
9 cups prepared stuffing
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups water or chicken broth
1 teaspoon chicken base or bouillon granules (or 1 cube)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Add 1/2 cup Drambuie to prepared stuffing and place in cavity of turkey. Place turkey on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan, breast-side up.
  3. Combine butter and 2 tablespoon Drambuie in a small bowl. Gently lift skin above cavity and rub butter mixture over breast meat, taking care not to tear skin. Tie drumsticks together to hold their shape. Bake for 3 to 4 hours, or until stuffing reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. After about 2 hours of cooking time, check the color of turkey. Cover with a loose foil tent when turkey reaches a light golden brown color.
  4. Allow turkey to rest in order for juices to redistribute through turkey. Meanwhile, carefully pour all but 2 tablespoon fat from pan. Place over medium-low heat and add flour. Whisk constantly until mixture is hot and bubbly. Slowly pour in water while continuing to whisk. Add remaining 2 tablespoons Drambuie and chicken bouillon cube to pan. Stir until gravy reaches desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Carve turkey as desired and serve with gravy on the side.
