Easy Butter Whole Turkey

Cooking a turkey can seem daunting but this is an easy recipe that cooks the turkey upside-down with extra flavour coming from butter.

It was OK....I did enjoy all brown skin all the way around. Will I do it again? Yup why not.... I only like the wings anyway, it was all moist. LIVE A LITTLE TRY SOMETHING NEW!

TIP!!!!!! Use rubber gloves to turn the turkey right side up. (much easier and safer) I have a pair of gloves I use just for flipping the bird!

We put it in the oven and left the house. Came back three and a half hours later and it was done! No basting. Never took the lid off and it was golden brown. Super moist and super delicious. Everyone raved! I ALSO followed another cook's advice and used apple juice in the bottom of the pan and rubbed on melted butter with pepper, rubbed sage, garlic powder and poultry seasoning. Turkey fell apart on transfer. If you care about appearances more than flavor do not use the recipe. But, that would be a mistake. :-)

Tried it last year and I will never go back! Added more seasoning and used orange juice instead of water. It's not pretty but so worth it!

This is the basis for how I cook my turkey every year. I usually place 2 sticks of butter in the crevice and rub the bird with oil and spices (poultry seasoning, garlic salt and powder, salt and pepper then a pinch of cumin). Place it in a Reynold's Turkey bag, breast side down and away it goes.
