    Ingredients:

    Serves: 20

    Yield:

    15 lb t ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    2. 2
      Line a turkey roaster with long sheets of aluminum foil that will be long enough to wrap over the turkey.
    3. 3
      Stir together the parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, lemon pepper, and salt in a small bowl.
    4. 4
      Rub the herb mixture into the cavity of the turkey, then stuff with the celery, orange, onion, and carrot.
    5. 5
      Truss if desired, and place the turkey into the roasting pan.
    6. 6
      Pour the chicken broth and champagne over the turkey, making sure to get some champagne in the cavity.
    7. 7
      Bring the aluminum foil over the top of the turkey, and seal. Try to keep the foil from touching the skin of the turkey breast or legs.
    8. 8
      Bake the turkey in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear.
    9. 9
      Uncover the turkey, and continue baking until the skin turns golden brown, 30 minutes to 1 hour longer.
    10. 10
      An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).
    11. 11
      Remove the turkey from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

      Absolutely delicious! My whole family loved it. Very flavorful and tender. The only thing I did different was that I used a bag to roast the turkey in.
