Holiday Entertaining: Easy Roast Turkey

Perfect Roast Turkey the EASY Way

Try these simple tricks to roast your best, juciest holiday turkey ever!

1.) Skip the brine.  Most large turkeys are infused with a broth solution to make it extra juicy.

2.) Rub your turkey with a flavored butter, (chive is good), and roast breast side down at 425 degrees for the first hour.  Turn and continue cooking at 325 degrees breast side up.  Leave the turkey uncovered and baste every hour with butter to finish cooking.

3.) Use Bell's Seasoning in your stuffing which can also be made outside of the bird.  

4.) Try whole berry cranberry sauce instead of the jellied type.  Whole berries add extra texture & crunch.

This super easy roasting method gives you a golden brown, crisp skin and VERY juicy breast meat.
Making your own turkey is still the most impressive and economical way to serve large numbers of guests for the holidays.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
