Easy Turkey
Ingredients
1 (16-lb.) whole turkey
1/4 cup Sunnyside Farms Butter, softened
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. sage
1 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. pepper
Directions

People think roasting a turkey is a challenge. It’s actually one of the easiest things to prepare!

Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 3 to 5 hours, depending on the size of the turkey Serves: 10 to 


1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Rinse turkey and pat dry; remove packets with the giblets and neck from cavity of turkey. Place turkey on a rack in a large roasting pan.
2. Stir together butter and seasonings and rub on all sides of turkey.
3. Roast for 3 hours or until
a meat thermometer inserted into the thigh registers 165°F, tenting loosely with foil if it browns too quickly. Let rest for 30 minutes before carving.

TIPS:
Do NOT open the oven door to baste with juices.
Nothing penetrates the skin, it just rolls right off. You’re just cooling off your oven and this can also lead to a dry turkey.
It’s safer to cook your stuffing outside the turkey as a stuffed bird may not get to a high enough internal temperature.
For crispier skin, rinse and dry your turkey 1 day ahead of cooking. Place in a roasting pan and let stand in the refrigerator, uncovered, to dry the surface.
