2 carrots, coarsely chopped
4½ cups corn flakes, crushed

¼ cup uncooked farina, such as Cream of Wheat
¼ cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
1½ teaspoons salt, divided
¾ teaspoon pepper divided
12-14 pound turkey, thawed if frozen, neck and giblets removed
2 teaspoon mustard powder
Chicken broth, as needed
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried thyme
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
