Southern French-Style, Herb-roasted TurkeySubmitted by: ALLABOUTLOVE
IntroductionThis is my absolute favorite way to roast a turkey for the holidays. It is healthy and easy to make! And OH-SO-JUICY! Herbes de Provence is a seasoning mix and McCormick sells it in the spice aisle. This is my absolute favorite way to roast a turkey for the holidays. It is healthy and easy to make! And OH-SO-JUICY!

*Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 4 tbsp
12 lb. Roasting Turkey, cleaned
Salt, 1 tbsp
Pepper, black, 1 tbsp
Herbes de Provence, 1 tbsp
poultry seasoning, 1 tbsp
1 head of Garlic, top cut off
2 Lemons, halved
Rosemary, 1 tbsp
Thyme, fresh, 1 tsp
sage, fresh, 1 tsp
I put my turkey in an olive oil coated paper grocery bag and staple it shut. It will self baste and keep the turkey from drying out. You still have to put the bagged turkey in a pan with sides.
Clean and pat dry the turkey.
Season inside and out with the salt and pepper.
Place the turkey, breast side up, in the roasting pan.
mix the remaining olive oil with the herbes de Provence and the poultry seasoning.
Rub all over the turkey with your hands.
Rub some under the breast skin of the turkey.
Put the garlic head, the fresh herbs, and 1 lemon half inside the turkey.
Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon half over the turkey.
Put the pan, with the turkey, in the oven and put 1 cup of water in the pan.
Roast and baste for the recommended time for the turkey.
