  • Heat oven to 325ºF.
  • Mix all ingredients except turkey and oil until blended.
  • Remove neck and giblets from turkey cavities; discard or reserve for another use. Pat turkey dry with paper towels. Free legs from tucked position. (Do not cut band of skin.) Gently loosen skin over breast, starting at body cavity opening by legs. Spread butter mixture onto meat under skin. Return legs to tucked position. Tuck wings under turkey.
  • Place turkey, breast side up, on rack in roasting pan; brush with oil.
  • Bake 3-1/2 to 4 hours or until done (170°F), covering breast loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Remove turkey from oven. Let stand 20 min. before carving.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with smart sides, such as roasted Brussels sprouts and whole grain rolls, to balance out the meal.

How to Calculate the Turkey Roasting Time

If roasting your turkey in a 325°F oven, plan on 15 to 17 min. of cooking time for each pound of an unstuffed turkey.

Make Ahead

The versatile flavoured butter can be prepared ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 1 week. For best results, let the chilled butter stand at room temperature 30 min. to soften slightly before using as directed.
