    8.8 Fresh Li'l Butterball Young Turkey (minus giblets and neck)
    1 Tbsp Whole Wheat Flour
    1/4 c EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
    2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
    1 Tbsp Dried Basil
    2 tsp ground Sage
    1/2 tsp cracked Black Pepper


*NOTE: In a whole turkey, minus giblets and neck, there is 43% edible meat. (For my recipe purposes, 8.8 lb turkey minus giblets and neck = 7.6 lbs, only 3.8 lbs of edible meat - 3 cooked ounces is a serving, or 4 ounces raw) FIGURE YOUR WEIGHT ACCORDINGLY.
