Where would the holidays be without the turkey? I don’t know, but, I like turkey during the holidays. Until a couple of years ago though, I had never oven-roasted a turkey. I had deep-fried a few, smoked a couple, but never oven roasted. So, here is a very simple, but delicious oven-roasted turkey from FoodWishes.com with Chef John. I have used this one a couple of times and it is very easy and the turkey comes out perfect every time.


12-24 pound turkey
seasoning salt: salt, black pepper, and cayenne
3 tbsp butter
4 sprigs of rosemary
1/2 bunch sage leaves
1 onion, sliced
1 carrot, sliced
1 celery rib, sliced
