Easy Herb Roasted Turkey
November 13, 2007

My first time making turkey and everyone at the dinner party was amazed. Things like "the moistest turkey ever" "delicious" "oh my god, are you sure you made this yourself?"... I had a 12lb turkey, lightly stuffed w/ italian sausage stuffing, coated in the herb ingredients.. cooked breast side up for 2 hours (covered), then breast down (uncovered) for another 2 hours. Oh - I used 1/2c olive oil, 1/4c melted butter. I didn't even baste it once! Crispy, browned, juicy. I can't say enough good things!!! Update: cooked it again for a "Trial Run" dinner.. fantastic. Followed exactly as I did it last time - just be careful flipping the bird, its hot and if your hands slip, you lose some of the golden skin. Happy Thanksgiving!
