This simple recipe results in the BEST roast turkey!  The meat is always tender and juicy from the white meat to the dark.  This is the only Thanksgiving Turkey recipe that you will ever need!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Clear extra oven racks to make room for turkey.
  2. Unwrap your thawed turkey and remove the neck and giblets from the cavity.  Place the turkey on a roasting rack in a roasting pan.
  3. Cut the apple in half and place inside cavity.  Place a bay leaf under each wing.  Pour the entire bottle of white wine into the bottom of the roasting pan, and then pour the entire bottle of dressing over the turkey.
  4. Place the turkey in the oven and bake for 15 minutes per pound of turkey.
  5. When the internal temperature is 165˚F throughout, remove turkey from the oven and let rest for 20-30 minutes, then carve and serve.
  6. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Turkey MUST be fully thawed before cooking.
  • Check turkey in innermost thigh, innermost wing, and the thickest part of the breast to make sure it has reached 165˚F.  Turkey may remain pink in places, but USDA recommends cooking to 165˚F for safe consumption.
  • Nutrition facts provided based on my best estimation for the recipe and may not be accurate depending on what brands you use or modifications you make to the recipe.  I recommend using a nutrition calculator with the exact brands and measurements you use for the most accurate calculation.
