Category:  Main Dishes Holiday Dishes  - 
Ready in: 25m  -  Cooking time: 4h  - 


For 10 Servings(s) ()


  • 1 12-pound whole turkey
  • 0.75 cup(s) extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon(s) minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon(s) Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ground black pepper
  • sea salt to taste

Rosemary Roasted Turkey Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In small bowl, mix olive oil, garlic, rosemary, basil, Italian seasoning, black pepper and sea salt. Set aside.
  3. Wash the turkey inside and out, and pat dry. Remove any large fat deposits. Loosen the skin from the breast. This is done by slowly working your fingers between the breast and the skin. Work it loose to the end of the drumstick, being careful not to tear the skin.
  4. Using your hand, spread a generous amount of the rosemary mixture under the breast skin and down the thigh and leg. Rub the remainder of the rosemary mixture over the outside of the breast. Use toothpicks to seal skin over any exposed breast meat.
  5. Place turkey on a rack in a roasting pan. Add about 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of pan. Roast in the preheated oven 3 to 4 hours, or until internal temp of the bird reaches 180 degrees.
