How to Oven Roast a Moist Turkey

Here is my favorite way to oven roast a turkey.  It is roasted at a low temperature and has butter stuffed underneath the skin.  The end result is a turkey that comes out moist and delicious.  Adding Onion Soup Mix as a seasoning to the turkey makes the BEST tastiest gravy!




Ingredients:
(1) 12 pound whole turkey - completely thawed
6 tablespoon pats of butter
3 cups warm tap water
1 package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix
Rosemary, Sage and Thyme
Stuffing (optional)

Directions:
(1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
(2) Discard the turkey giblets and rinse the turkey with water inside and out.                 
(3) Place turkey in a roasting pan. Put 3 tablespoon pats of butter underneath the breast skin on each side between the skin and breast meat.  Stuff the turkey if desired.
(4) In a bowl, combine the water and soup mix. Pour onto the bottom of the pan you will cook your turkey in. Sprinkle Rosemary, Sage and Thyme generously over the turkey.               
(5) Cover with foil (give the turkey a good spray with non-stick spray so it doesn't stick to the foil) and bake for approximately 2.5 hours or until the temperature of the turkey and the stuffing reaches 165 degrees in the thigh. 
(6) Remove the foil.  Baste the turkey and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
(7) Baste the turkey again and continue to cook the turkey with the foil off for an another 15 minutes.
