How to make it

  • First you want to remove giblets from both cavities at both ends and set aside.
  • Now rinse the bird all overand pat him down dry.
  • Next you shoud put a rack into a large roasting pan,and then place the turkey onto the rack with the breast and legs up.
  • Now put your palm full of butter in between the skin and flesh.
  • Now take a glob of butter into the palm of your hand and generously rub the turkey with the butter.
  • Next you should sprinkle the entire bird with salt, freshly ground black pepper, onion powder, granulated garlic powder, tarragon, parsley flakes, thyme, basil and paprika.
  • Then pour about 1/4" to 1/2" of water in the bottom of the roasting pan, DONT WASH OF SEASONINGS!!
  • Now make a tent over turkey with aluminum foil and place into a preheated 325 degree oven for approx.1 1/2 hours.
  • Then take off foil tent and wrap foil around the legs and wings.
  • Now make sure to baste the turkey and return it back to oven for the remainder of the cooking time.
  • Note: When the juices run clear and not red when you puncture the bird between the thigh and the breast.
  • Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the turkey.
