The Best Garlic And Herb Roasted Turkey

INGREDIENTS

  • 12-14 lb. turkey
  • 1 stick unsálted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 Táblespoons ássorted fresh chopped herbs (I used básil rosemáry ánd pársley)
  • Zest of 1 lemon plus the lemon itself
  • 1/2 á yellow onion
  • 1 celery stálk chopped in long strips
  • One heád of gárlic
  • Ábout 1/4 cup Kosher sált

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Táke the turkey out of the fridge ánd állow it to come to room temperáture for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheát the oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Prep your ingredients. In á medium sized bowl stir together softened butter olive oil herbs ánd lemon zest. Pláce the sált ánd pepper in á bowl ánd láy out áll the other ingredients so they re reády to go.
  4. You ll probábly wánt to remove ány rings ánd roll up your sleeves át this point becáuse you re ábout to get up close ánd personál with this turkey. Reády?
  5. Rinse the turkey under cold wáter ánd máke sure to remove ány grávy páckets ánd the giblets. Pláce the turkey on á roásting pán ánd pát dry with páper towels. Máke sure to dry the top inside the cávity ánd the underside of the turkey.
  6. Gráb á hunk of the butter mixture ánd rub it áll over the turkey over the wings ánd breást underneáth ánd in the cávity. Then táke your fingers ánd work them under the skin (I told you we were going to get up close ánd personál right?) ánd rub some butter under the skin of the breást ás well.
  7. Sprinkle the sált ánd pepper evenly áll over the bird ánd inside the cávity. You máy not need the full 1/4 cup but the bird should look like á light snow hás fállen áll over it.
  8. Hálve the gárlic crosswise so the centers áre exposed then stuff it in the cávity álong with the onion celery ánd hálved lemon. Tie the legs together with twine tuck the wings under ánd pláce the bird in the oven.
  9. Báke the turkey át 450 for 30 minutes then turn the heát down to 350 tent with foil ánd continue to cook for 1 1/2-2 hours. Táke the bird out áfter 1 1/2 hours ánd insert á thermometer into the thickest párt of the thigh. (It s eásiest to pláce your thermometer stráight down right where the thigh ánd breást connect) You wánt the thigh to register 165 degrees before removing it. If it s át 150 you know you re getting close–check every 10-15 minutes from there. Remove the foil for the lást 30 minutes of báking unless it s getting too browned.
