I found this nine-pound turkey at the market, and while I've never roasted one this small, decided to make it for Easter (I also need to start making smaller meals as most nights it's just me and my guy having dinner.) It cooked up beautifully -- and very fast, too -- and we got dinner for three plus sandwiches the next day with no leftovers.
It required only seven slices of bread for the homemade stuffing (I usually use a loaf and a half), and it came with a base packet to help make the gravy, which was nice, too. The little chunks on the outside are sauteed onions, which I use in a special basting mixture of my own invention to keep the turkey moist while roasting and give it some extra flavor. Must do this again!
