    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      n a small bowl, combine softened butter, poultry seasoning, garlic herb sauce mix, and crushed garlic. Use a fork to mix together until well combined. Cover and put in the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes, until firm but not hard.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
    3. 3
      Arrange celery, carrots, and half of the diced onions in the bottom of a roasting pan. Add chicken broth and set aside.
    4. 4
      Rinse the thawed turkey and pat dry. Use your finger to carefully loosen the skin around the entire bird. Take the butter mixture and cut into large pieces. Place the butter pieces under the skin of the entire turkey. Rub the remaining butter pieces on the outside of the skin and season with salt and pepper. Stuff the inside of turkey cavity with remaining onions, fresh herb poultry blend, and lemon slices. (Truss if necessary.) Insert the pop-up thermometer at an angle about 3-inches down from the neck cavity and 2-inches from the breast bone, in the thickest part of the breast.
    5. 5
      Place turkey on the bed of vegetables in roasting pan. Place in the oven and reduce temperature to 325 degrees F. Roast for 1 hour, then baste with pan juices every 20 minutes until thermometer pops up or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thigh registers 180 degrees F, about 3 hours.

      WOW!! My turkey came out the best it has ever. Lets face it, Turkey is good, but hey it is just turkey right. This is a great way to make it taste like something different, without taking away from the traditional tastes we love. Everyone was raving, asking what it was different. The butter compliments the turkey so well, but doesn't make it taste like a huge garlic ball. PERFECT! This is the way my turkey is going to be made everytime!

      Made this turkey last year and it turned out GREAT!. So moist and juicy. We are making it again this year because we loved it so much. It has replaced the way we have been making turkey for over 20 years.
