Bacon Wrapped Turkey...thats right...I said it.

This post is a little late...but will be super handy for all the turkey laden events you will have in the future (Christmas is just around the corner!!!). Now trust me when I say this...Bacon made the turkey better. Really. It was so juicy, and tasty and the crispy bacon covered skin was to die for. And then the gravy..mmmmmmmm...the bacon fat really made it that much better!
 Prepare and start roasting your turkey with whatever seasonings/fillings that you normally would do. I have done this with a stuffed Turkey and non-stuffed turkey...both turned out fantastic. I highly suggest you use a meat thermometer...as the bacon goes on when the turkey is about 15 degrees out from being done.
 When your meat thermometer reads between 160-165F, remove it from the oven and cover in strips of bacon. Even wrap some around the legs. Return to the oven and roast until the turkey is cooked and the bacon is crispy!
Really a piece of art!
