Thanksgiving Main Event Recipes
Take your turkey to the next level with a maple bourbon glaze! This sweet and savory main course will surely be a new family favorite.


  • 1 turkey (12 to 14 pounds), thawed

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 cup bourbon

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • Fresh thyme sprigs for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Rinse the turkey's cavities and pat dry it entirely with paper towels.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine bourbon, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper. Bring this mixture to a boil and stir until the salt is dissolved. 
  3. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens and reduces by about one-third. Set aside.
  4. In a separate, small bowl, combine melted butter and olive oil.
  5. Tie the turkey's legs together with kitchen twine and place it on a roasting rack in a large roasting pan. Brush the turkey's entire body with butter and oil mixture.
  6. Roast the turkey for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the turkey's thigh reaches 165°F.
  7. During the last hour of cooking, baste the turkey with the bourbon maple glaze every 30 minutes.
  8. Remove the turkey from the oven and let it rest for 20 minutes before carving. Garnish with thyme sprigs and serve with a side of the remaining glaze.
