Roast Turkey Recipe

Ingredients:
1 10 to 12 pound turkey, brined for 24-36 hours
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme, crushed
1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel
2 tablespoons finely shredded lemon peel
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large yellow onions, cut into quarters

10 cloves garlic, unpeeled
2 cups chick stock or reduced sodium chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350 F. Rinse the brined turkey under cold water and pat it dry, inside and out, with paper towels.

In a small bowl mix together the butter, thyme, orange peel, lemon peel, salt and pepper.

Rub the turkey with the now seasoned butter, inside and out. Fill the cavity with half of the onions, celery, bay leaves and garlic.

Skewer turkey neck skin to back. Tuck drumstick ends under the fold of skin across the tail, if available. If there is no band of skin, tie the drumsticks securely to the tail with clean 100% cotton kitchen string. Twist wing tips under back.
