Moist Oven-roasted Turkey

Recipe by HappyMommy1422
READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
YIELD: 1 turkey




  • Wash the turkey and pat it dry.
  • Place all of the herbs, all the butter, half the lemon and half the apple into the body cavity.
  • Place the other half of lemon and apple into the neck cavity.
  • Truss the turkey with kitchen string or dental floss.
  • Rub canola oil all over the turkey and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
  • If you're using an oven bag, place the turkey in the bag at this point, following the directions on the box. I put about 1 tablespoon of water into the bag.
  • Roast in a 350 degree oven until themometer inserted in the thigh reads 180 degrees.
  • My 15-pound turkey took about 2 hours and 40 minutes.
  • You may want to adjust the oven temperature to 325 if you're not using an oven bag.
