Southern French-Style, Herb-roasted Turkey

Submitted by: ALLABOUTLOVE

Introduction

This 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.

Tips

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.
