Maple Bacon Glazed Turkey with Gravy

This Canadian inspired recipe produces a crispy skinned bird with a deep caramel coloured exterior and a super juicy interior from basting with chicken broth while it roasts. The gravy is reason enough to try this!

Ingredients


  • Turkey:

  • 1 cup (250 mL)  pure  maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) grainy dijon  mustard
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) ancho chili powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) sea salt
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) fresh cracked  pepper
  • 15 lb (6.81 kg) turkey, patted dry and neck and giblets removed
  • 8 slices thick cut strip  bacon
  • 2 cartons CAMPBELL’S® 30% Less Sodium Ready to Use Chicken Broth, divided 
  • 3 large  carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 celery stalks, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 large cooking  onions, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 2 shallots, peeled and cut in half
  • 1 head  garlic, halved

  • Pan Gravy:

  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) butter
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) sea salt
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) fresh cracked  pepper
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped  rosemary
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) thyme
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) sage

Directions

  1. Whisk the maple syrup, mustard, chili powder, salt and pepper. Cover and let sit at room temperature at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to meld. (Make ahead: The glaze can be made up to 2 days in advance; store covered in the refrigerator.)
  2. Remove the turkey from the refrigerator 1 hour before roasting. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  3. In a medium saucepan, over low heat, pour 1 carton (900 mL) of the chicken broth.
  4. Place the carrots, celery, onions, shallots and garlic in a large roasting pan and place a roasting rack on top. Put the turkey on the rack, lay bacon strips all over the turkey and place in the oven and roast until light golden brown, about 45 minutes. (Tent the turkey loosely with foil if it is browning too quickly.) Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (180°C), baste with 2 cups (500 mL) of the warm broth and continue roasting, basting with remaining warm broth halfway through, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thigh registers 155°F, about 1 hour. Remove the bacon and begin basting with the maple glaze; continue roasting, basting with the glaze every 10 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thigh registers 160°F, about 20 more minutes.
  5. Remove the turkey from the oven and transfer to a large cutting board. Tent loosely with foil and let rest at least 45 minutes before slicing. Strain the drippings into a bowl and discard the solids. Add enough of the remaining chicken broth to make 6 cups (1.5L) liquid.
  6. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper and cook until light golden brown, about 4 minutes. Slowly whisk in the broth-drippings mixture, then bring to a boil and whisk until the gravy begins thickening and the flour taste has been cooked out, about 10 minutes. Stir in the herbs and serve hot.
  7. To serve, reheat the remaining broth in a saucepan over low heat. Remove the legs and wings, then remove the dark meat and shred. Remove the breasts and cut crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices. Place the meat on a platter and ladle some of the warm broth on top.
