Thanksgiving Turkey

Thanksgiving Turkey

Of all the techniques I’ve used to attain that perfect turkey, this is definitely the best and easiest turkey I’ve ever made! The secret is to roast the turkey breast side down for at least half of the cooking time. This will ensure a juicy, evenly cooked turkey. One tool that you absolutely must have is a thermometer, it’s the ONLY safe way to know your bird is done without overcooking it. If you don’t have a roasting rack, no problem! I got rid of mine because it takes up too much space and I only used it once a year. Take a long sheet of aluminum foil (the length will depend on the size of your turkey) and scrunch it up into a thick rope. Shape the foil rope into a spiral or a figure 8, then place your bird on top. My last tip is to season from the inside out. I only use olive oil (or butter) and salt on the skin.
