Really good and easy. I did not stuff as I just cooked a turkey breast so I moistened with chicken broth and baked in a dish.

I'm giving this a three although my natural inclination is to give it a zero or 1 star because of the shortening. Use olive oil in this and it's four stars.

I thought this recipe was very good. I made it today to practice before Thanksgiving! A little too salty, and I will omit all the paprika next time. I don't like the coloring. I baked as is with...
