Wanting an awesome way to cook your turkey this year? This orange butter injected Thanksgiving turkey recipe is here to provide extra holiday taste and happiness! This is an easy turkey recipe that uses only 5 ingredients and can be cooked any way you like it. We used the Orion Cooker, but if you don’t have one, feel free to follow along in your oven!
When you inject a turkey, you’ll need a specialty injection needle, so make sure to mark that off your list early. If you don’t have one, check online or at the local grocery store. You’ll want to inject a few ounces of liquid in each thigh, leg, and breast to ensure a juicy bird. For the injection, you can go regular, or use the spicy Dan-O’s for a more “Creole-style” injection.
We stuffed our bird with onion and orange, but you can use any fresh herbs and veggies you have lying around. Fresh rosemary or parsley work great! The Orion Cooker uses a stand that gives us a little less room for stuffing than usual, but this part is up to you.
The Dan-O’s coating on the outside will provide a beautiful herb and spice coating that tastes delicious. That’s the fresh garlic, citrus, rosemary, and sea salt talking there! You can use the spicy if you’d like, and we promise you won’t kill anybody. It will be similar to a creole seasoning, which you’ll often find used on turkeys.
So, five ingredients, and that’s it! Were thankful for the Dan-O’s family for keeping the dream alive and reading our recipes. We hope you enjoy your Turkey Day!
