Ingredients

Yield

We suggest 1 - 1.5# turkey per adult to allow for leftovers!
  • 1 LGCM Amish Turkey
  • 1/2 cup Butter ( softened)
  • 1 sprig Thyme ( fresh, chopped)
  • 1 sprig Rosemary ( fresh, chopped)
  • 1 leaf Sage ( fresh, chopped)
  • 2 clove Garlic ( minced)

Directions

  • 1

    Remove giblets & neck from the inside of the turkey and set off to the side, or discard. Pat turkey dry and set aside.

  • 2

    Mash the butter, herbs, and garlic together. Loosen the turkey’s skin by reaching under the neck and gently pulling away from the meat. Keep loosening down to the thighs and legs. Once the skin is loose, evenly spread the butter mixture underneath the skin.

  • 3

    Place the turkey on top of a rack set in a roasting pan, then place in an oven preheated to 400ºF. Roast the turkey until the breast reaches 165ºF, then remove from the oven. Roasting will take about 8-10 minutes per pound depending on your oven. Cook to temperature, not time.

  • 4

    Once the turkey is done cooking, remove from oven, and let rest for 15 minutes before carving. Enjoy!
