Roasted Turkey: Submitted by: Wendy R Cook | Date Added: 10 Nov 2018
Listed in: Poultry

1 whole turkey, thawed if frozen
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
1 tablespoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoon olive oil

Cooking Instructions

1. Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Discard giblets and neck from turkey or reserve for another use. Using fingers, gently loosen skin covering turkey breast and thighs; spread butter evenly under skin. In small bowl, combine spices. Rub spice mixture over turkey skin. Fold wings across back of turkey so tips are touching.

2. Place turkey, breast side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Drizzle oil over turkey. Tuck legs under bank of skin at tail, or tie together with heavy string, then tie to tail. Insert oven proof meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of inside thigh muscle and does not touch bone. Do not add water to pan.

3. Roast uncovered 2 hours. Cut bank of skin or remove string holding legs, to allow the inside of the thighs to cook thoroughly and evenly. Roast 2 hours 15 minutes to 2 hours 45 minutes longer or until thermometer read 165 degrees and legs move easily when lifted or twisted (cover loosely with foil if necessary to prevent overbrowning). Remove turkey from oven, let stand 15 minutes before carving.
