  3. Cover the turkey with the sauce, gently lift the skin up and massage the turkey with the sauce, leave some for basting. Tip: Place the turkey on a foiled baking pan and leave to marinate there so you don't need to take it up and down

Recipe Notes

  If you don't have or don't like grain/stone mustard you can use just honey and dijon mustard or just honey mustard if that's what you have.
