Simple Whole Roasted Turkey
Every Thanksgiving and Christmas since I was a young child, my father would roast a very large turkey to perfection. I've since learned over the years how to perfect his techniques to create moist and tender meat. Use this classic whole roasted turkey recipe as a centerpiece to a holiday meal; serve it with gluten-free gravy, mashed potatoes, a fall salad, and pumpkin pie for a nourishing meal! It is best to let the turkey come to room temperature before cooking it. This can take up to two hours, so plan ahead of time. Use my cooking times below to calculate how long to roast the turkey based on weight. I highly recommend purchasing a digital meat thermometer to make sure your turkey is cooked to perfection.
