LEPRECHAUN HOLIDAY RECIPES

The following recipes are courtesy of Leprechaun Cider Company's special seasonal Chef Chris Harrison, main chef at Royal Oak Bar and Grill Houston, Texas.

 
 
(8-10 lb turkey) 2 lemons (user one for juice, second in turkey) 4 golden delicious apples cored and sliced 2 yellow onions rough chopped 1 bulb garlic pealed 6 sprigs fresh rosemary 8 sprigs fresh thyme About ¼ cup fresh sage ½ stick butter 1 btl leprechaun golden cider 1 cup chicken broth I used an oven bag. Coat the outside of the turkey with the butter. Place some slices of apple, onion, garlic and herbs under turkey. Use the rest to stuff into the turkey. Pour cider and broth in and over turkey. Follow bag directions; oven at 350 for about 1 ¼ to 2 hours. You can use foil to cover the turkey in a roasting pan rather than oven bag. I prefer the oven bag because it's a really simple way to help keep your turkey moist.
