Roast Turkey

Allow 3/4 to 1 pound per serving.

Clean thoroughly, rub with butter, season with salt and pepper and pack stuffing loosely (if desired). Place in a roasting pan with a small amount of water. Cover and bake at 350 degrees, allowing 20-25 minutes per pound. Uncover and bake at 500 degrees for 15 minutes or until brown.


(Thawing Guide: Thaw a frozen turkey in the refrigerator one day for each 4 pounds in weight. An 8 lb turkey = 2 days, 12 lb turkey = 4 days, and so on.)
