heres my recipe i make
first i wash the bird! all over and pat dry
i make my stuffing to go into the turkey, set aside
next i chop up some herbs from my yard, oregano, parsley, rosemary, savory, pineapple sage, garlic pd, very fine, add them to some olive oil, or whatever oil i have!
next carefully lift the skin from the turkey (i do it all over the turkey any place the skin will lift) and spread the oil herb mix all over under the skin, also inside the bird. and all over the outside of the bird.
then i put my stuffing in the bird
put in a roaster at 325 degrees breast side up
for about http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art6287.asp
cover turkey loosely with foil and about 1/2 hour before turkey is done take off foil to turn that skin a nice carmel brown color!
take out of roaster carefully, set on platter and cover with foil for about 15 min. to rest and get those juices flowing all through the bird.
carve! and enjoy!
dont forget to make the gravy with the drippings!
