Turkey  Garlic butter Orange Lemon halved Onion halved Sprigs of fresh herbs Baking twine Chicken broth Milk Flour

Yeast Package

It's so easy!

It’s the easiest oven-roasted turkey but is absolutely packed with flavor from herby garlic butter sauce!

Flour Bowl

Preheat oven to 425°F. Rinse and pat turkey dry. Remove neck and giblets. For the turkey seasoning, you will need to make our Garlic Butter Rub.


Carefully lift up the skin. Season underneath with garlic butter. Rub the outer skin all over with more garlic butter.


Stuff the cavity with orange, lemon, onion, and herbs.


Tie the legs with cooking twine. Pour chicken broth into the roasting pan and transfer to the oven.


Roast for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350°F. After the first hour, baste it every 30 minutes.


Tent with foil if the skin becomes deep golden brown before the turkey is cooked through.


Roast until a meat thermometer registers 160°F. Remove and let it rest. Carve, serve and enjoy!
