A Healthy Turkey Recipe

Turkey Tips

Use a rack inside your turkey pan.

It takes about 15-18 minutes to cook 1 pound of turkey. Use a meat thermometer to make sure you’ve cooked your Turkey thoroughly. Insert it close to (but not touching) the thigh bone. If it reads 180 degrees F in the thigh and 170 degrees F in the breast, it’s done and ready to serve.

To ensure an on-time bird, thaw your turkey in the refrigerator 2-3 days before roasting, bringing it to room temperature before roasting.

Make sure to pre-heat your oven.

Wash your turkey with vinegar, but make sure to pat it dry before adding your herbs.

Let the turkey sit for at least 20 to 30 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to distribute evenly throughout the turkey, keeping it moist and succulent.
