The Perfect Roast Turkey Recipe!
I don’t know what it is about roasting a turkey but it can seem like one of the most intimidating things to prepare and cook for the first time. Maybe it’s because it’s generally made to feed a lot of people so along with that comes the stress of possibly messing dinner up for a lot of people, plus being served on Thanksgiving means it’s that once a year special event.
This easy, straightforward recipe is hard to mess up by following the simple guidelines and steps (as in, don’t begin with a partial frozen turkey and be sure you fully cook it through).
The secret in this turkey recipe is in the butter and flavorings. The butter helps yield a nicely browned skin and a juicy, flavorful meat while the lemon and herbs infuse a nice flavor.
This roast turkey will be the star of the show at your holiday feast with it’s delicious flavor and moist, tender texture. It’s a turkey that does the yearly tradition proud!
