Ingredients

6 Servings

Meat & Seafood

  • Whole Turkey 12 pounds

Pantry

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil 3 tablespoons

  • Cotton Twine

Produce

  • Fresh Eureka Lemon 1

  • Fresh Garden Thyme 1 bunch

  • Sage Leaf 1 bunch

  • Red Onion 1

  • Head of Garlic 2 heads

Spices

  • Kosher Salt 3 tablespoons

  • Black Pepper 1 teaspoon

Preparation

  1. Preheat Oven

    Preheat the oven to 375F.

  2. Season & Cook Turkey

    Sprinkle a third of the salt into the cavity of the bird. Then stuff with garlic, lemon & herbs. Truss the bird and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper. Cook bird for 1 hour 50 minutes at 375F. Raise the heat to 425F and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the center of the breast reads 163F degrees. Remove from heat and let rest for at least 20 minutes. Why rest? To maximize juiciness!

    • 12 pounds Whole Turkey
    • 3 tablespoons Kosher Salt
    • 1 head, halved Head of Garlic
    • 1, halved Fresh Eureka Lemon
    • 1/2 bunch Sage Leaf
    • 1/2 bunch Fresh Garden Thyme
    • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
    • gram Cotton Twine
  3. Slice & Garnish

    Remove twine from bird. Pull legs away from the center & cut through the skin between breast & drumstick. Bend legs & cut to detach leg. Slice along each side of the breastbone to remove breasts. Cut the wings off at the joint. To separate the thigh from the drumstick, cut between joint. Slice breasts crosswise, skin side up, & arrange on a platter with dark meat & wings. Presentation Tip: Sear onion and garlic in a little oil to caramelize/color the cut side. Arrange with fresh sage around bird.

    • 1, halved Red Onion
    • 1 head, halved Head of Garlic
    • 1/4 bunch Sage Leaf
