Herbed Roasted Turkey


A few days ago my husband received his annual frozen turkey from work. Two hours before the end of his shift, he put it in the trunk of his car - on an unseasonably warm November afternoon. We had turkey last night. Call it a taste of things to come. Here's how I roasted it. It came out wonderfully. I served it with the garlic mashed potatoes (also found in this blog), a cabbage salad, and acorn squash. We'll save the pumpkin pie and cranberries for next week...

1 turkey
olive oil
Sea salt & pepper
Rosemary
Sage
Marjoram
Basil
(I used dried herbs here.)

Rinse turkey and place in roasting pan. Rub with olive oil. Lightly sprinkle herbs, salt, and pepper over turkey. Cover with a tent of foil. Bake at 325 degrees until turkey timer pops out or meat thermometer reads 170 degrees in breast and 185 degrees in thigh meat.
