(originally made 7/2011)
Turkey in the summer? Sure! I had planned on doing these on the
grill, but some unexpected rain changed my plans to cooking them
inside. I poured the entire mixture over the turkey and put them in a
400º oven to bake for 25 mins. I basted them halfway through. I
turned the oven down to 350 for about 5 or 7 mins to finish them, they
were very thick through the center and I wanted to make sure they were
cooked through. The mixture cooked down to a beautiful glaze, which I
spooned over the turkey. When I stored the leftovers, I sliced it up
and then poured the remaining glaze over the top. So good!
I served it with Garden Green beans with Caramelized Brown Sugar Bacon that I found on http://www.justgetoffyourbuttandbake.com/?p=2387
via Foodgawker. I omitted the almonds due to allergies.
Definitely one of my favorite green bean recipes EVER. Lots of
great stuff on her blog too, be sure to take a peek around!
