Best Turkey ever! I followed the recipe down to the foil roasting pan. It turned out juicy and perfect! I had another turkey that I slow cooked in a slow cooker and all the guests agreed the fast upside-down turkey was more moist!

My turkey was 20lbs. I followed this recipe to a tee and it was the juiciest most delicious turkey I've ever made. Everyone loved this. Unfortunately my bread got a little too squishy and tough in spots to eat but it kept the breasts moist and cushioned perfectly. I also used the make ahead gravy which was perfect a well! Will use the recipe again next Thanksgiving

This was so easy and fast and juicy! I used a baguette under the 17lb turkey one half under the breast bone and other halves on either side of that. They were completely flattened by the turkey but I added them to my stuffing and they were fantastic. Will definitely make again. Possibly for slightly less time by just 5 to 10 minutes.

I wouldn't bother flipping it over. The skin on the back was no longer crispy after flipping and the breast skin did not have enough time to get good and crispy. We saved the bread and made simple bread dressing with it a few days later. The extra butter and turkey drippings made a divine dressing. The browned bread bits softened up during cooking and made it extra rich.

Made exactly as directed. The turkey came out amazingly. Juicy all the way through.

I was delighted to see Chef's upside down turkey. We have done this for years and the breast meat is always extra [email protected]@ YES!!

Incredible on so many levels. Worked perfectly, in fact a 17 lb was done sooner but we didn't have a thermometer. Didn't try the bread, just used a rack so maybe that contributed to faster cook - will try the bread another time just because it sounds delicious. Almost everyone then asked for the link to this page, all blown away at how efficient and good it was. Those of us who prefer dark even loved the white because of how incredibly juicy it was. Do season as suggested - don't skimp.

Absolute perfection! I made this on Thanksgiving day so I did not have a store open to buy the bread. No worries - I had a roaster pan with a rack. I was a bit worried about the high heat (my oven kept initiating the cooling fan process) but it came out juicy and tender. I left it upside down and the back skin was crisp and delicious. Everyone loved it. I'll never make turkey any other way again!
