    puppitypup's Note:

    This is my variation of Wolfgang Puck's recipe. The fresh herbs infuse the turkey with incredible flavor, and the brine makes the turkey moist and tender.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 7-10

    Yield:

    turkey

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6350.29-7257.47 g whole turkey

    BRINE

    HERB BUTTER

    AROMATIC ROASTING PLATFORM

    AROMATIC FILLER

    DRIZZLE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Thaw turkey.
    2. 2
      Prepare brine. Brine must be cool before placing turkey in it. (If no room in fridge for brine, then make it in two stages. Boil all ingredients EXCEPT CHICKEN BROTH Tuesday night, then just add chicken broth Wednesday morning without heating).
    3. 3
      Place turkey in brine 24 hours.
    4. 4
      Remove turkey and pat dry. Gently loosen skin and rub herb butter under skin.
    5. 5
      Place turkey breast up on platform of herbs and veggies, and fill with herbs, apples and onions.
    6. 6
      Place probe in meaty area, not touching bone. Rub olive oil over breast and wings.
    7. 7
      Cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake at 325 degrees until probe reaches 161 degrees.
    8. 8
      Remove turkey from oven and let sit covered for 20 minutes before slicing.
    9. 9
      This uses the USDA's new recommended internal temperature for turkey in this recipe. This is significantly lower than the old recommendation, but allows for a much juicier turkey.
