5-Herb Butter Roast Turkey Recipe

I’m all for a simple turkey recipe because it’s such a simple protein to savour. Roasting has and probably always will be my favourite way to enjoy and this simple recipe is sure to become a fave for you as well.

Serves: 8-12
Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 3-4 hrs

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole turkey, 14-18 lbs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1 handful each fresh thyme, sage, rosemary, oregano, parsley
  • 4 tbsp butter, softened
  • 2 large onions, roughly chopped (approx. 2 cups)
  • 3 large carrots, roughly chopped (approx. 2 cups)
  • 3 stalks celery, roughly chopped (approx. 1 ½ cups)
  • 4 cups turkey broth

Instructions:

  1. Make sure the turkey is thawed and the giblets have been removed.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF (177ºC).
  3. Pat the turkey dry, inside and out, with paper towels.
  4. Rub the turkey with the olive oil, inside and out.  Season generously with salt and pepper, and dried Italian herbs, inside and out.
  5. Finely chop half of the herbs.  Combine with the butter. Rub the herb-butter mixture generously underneath the skin and over the breast on both sides.
  6. Stuff the cavity with the onions, carrots, celery and the remaining herbs. 
  7. Place the turkey into your roasting pan. Add the turkey broth.
  8. Roast the turkey for 3 ½-4 ½ hours or until the juices run clear and an instant thermometer reads 180°F (82°C) in the thickest part of the thigh.
  9. Remove the turkey from the oven and let it rest for 20 minutes before carving.

NOTE: Cooking times are for planning purposes only – always use a digital meat thermometer to determine doneness.

TIP:  Feel free to get creative with seasonings, rubs and glazes to change up the flavour profile of your turkey.  Visit our glazes, infusions and rubs recipe section for inspiration.

10 Ways to Master Thanksgiving Prep and Planning

  1. For an easy way to ensure extra-crispy skin, unwrap your turkey the day before you are planning to cook it and leave it in the fridge overnight. The extra drying time will add the perfect crispiness to your turkey.
  2. Use a good quality meat thermometer to ensure you cook your turkey to the perfect doneness. Test your thermometer a few days ahead of time to make sure it is working properly.
  3. Consider cooking your turkey in parts – breasts, thighs and drums – for a quicker, foolproof way to get the meat cooked perfectly.
  4. Get a head start on your meal! You can prep all of your staples like onions, celery and carrots up to 3 days beforehand.  Dice and store in storage bags.  Green beans, squash and salad greens can be washed, trimmed, and chopped ahead of time.  Store these in storage bags for ready-to-cook sides.
  5. For an easier-to-serve, fun meal with a casual feel, or if you are hosting a large crowd, consider hosting a buffet-style meal. Spread your dishes out in the kitchen or dining room and let people self-serve and mingle while they eat for an easier-to-serve, fun meal with a casual feel.
  6. To reduce cooking time, cook your stuffing on the side. This way you can get more of your favourite crunchy bits while cutting down on cooking time in the oven.
  7. Plan ahead and make a ‘smart’ shopping list. Organize it by staples you can buy in advance and perishables you need to buy a few days before, then organize according to sections of the grocery store.  This will make grocery shopping a breeze and save you precious time.
  8. Look for make-ahead sides that you can make a day or two beforehand and taste delicious re-heated. Bookmark a website with tasty and reliable turkey recipes and resources, likecanadianturkey.ca, so you’re ready for the big day!
  9. To plan for leftovers, order a turkey that is several pounds bigger than what you need. Extra turkey can be stored and frozen to use for quick and easy meals later on.
  10. Leftover turkey freezes well. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for a quick start to a weekday meal.  Visit canadianturkey.ca for recipe inspiration and create salads, soups, pastas or casseroles in a snap.

    Addition of salt in the brining procedure will yield a salty flavour to the turkey so it is wise to omit salt as an ingredient in the turkey stock.
