Roasting the Turkey

 by 

I have to admit, I have never overcooked a turkey.
So here is how I do it.

Recipe: Roast Turkey

Ingredients

  • One 12-14 Brined Turkey
  • One onion chipped into 1 inch dice
  • 2 carrots – cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 celery stalks- cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 stalks of fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 organic lemon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Scatter the onion, carrots, and celery inside a roasting pan.
  3. Insert the rosemary and lemon inside the turkey cavity.
  4. Place the turkey on top of the vegetables in the roasting pan.
  5. Bake the turkey for 15 minutes then turn the oven to 325 degrees.
  6. Roast for 3 hours, then check the temperature. If the turkey starts to brown too quickly, tent the turkey with foil.
  7. The turkey is done when the temperature is 165 degrees.
  8. Once you have the turkey roasted completely, remove it to a serving platter and continue on to make gravy.

Quick notes

Make sure that you get a turkey without any additives, most of them still have modified food starch
