4 Best Sweet and Savory Turkey Glazes

It’s turkey time! It’s actually amazingly easy to cook a turkey once it’s in the oven, the trick is simply getting the timing spot-on. You can cook it with a simple salt-rub on the skin, basting it every so often as it cooks.

Adding a tasty glaze makes that crispy skin even better. What should you put in it? Check out these 4 tasty and easy turkey glazes.

1) Coca-Cola Glaze

Who said an ice-cold Coke is for drinking? This stuff is so packed with sugar, it does the job of glazing to a ‘T’. Add in butter and brown sugar for a thicker sauce as this recipe on TheKitchn.com suggests.
