Nugget Signature Recipe

Citrus and sage, an ideal complement to roast poultry, is particularly suited for turkey. Sage and a dash of cayenne add a subtle earthiness to the sweet and tart flavor of orange marmalade. Combine these flavors with the natural goodness of roast turkey for an exceptional holiday meal.

Preparation

Combine ingredients in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce heat; simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Liberally brush glaze on turkey every 15 minutes during the last hour of cooking time. Remove turkey from oven, brush on glaze one last time, then let stand 15-20 minutes before carving.

Due to the high sugar content of the glaze, the oven’s temperature during the glazing stage should be lowered; otherwise the glaze may burn. Ideally, the temperature should be between 250ºF and 300ºF. Adjust total cooking time for your turkey accordingly.
