Hey there! Are you ready to cook up the most delicious turkey this Thanksgiving? Well, you've come to the right place! Follow this recipe to create a turkey that will have your guests begging for seconds.
- 1 whole turkey (12-14 pounds)
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons dried rosemary
- 2 tablespoons dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).
- Remove the giblets and neck from the turkey cavity, and rinse the turkey inside and out with cold water. Pat it dry with paper towels.
- In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, dried rosemary, dried thyme, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
- Using your hands, carefully loosen the skin of the turkey without tearing it. Spread the herb butter mixture evenly under the skin, covering as much of the turkey as possible.
- Place the turkey in a roasting pan, breast-side up. If you want to take your roasting game to the next level, consider using the Ecolution Turkey Roaster with Rack for even cooking and juicy results!
- Tent the turkey with aluminum foil, making sure it's loosely covering the bird.
- Roast the turkey in the preheated oven for approximately 3 to 3.5 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Baste the turkey every 30 minutes with the drippings in the pan to keep it moist and flavorful.
- Once the turkey is done, remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 20 minutes before carving. This will help the juices distribute evenly throughout the meat.
- Carve and serve the turkey with your favorite sides, like mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce.
