    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-12

    Yield:

    Turkey

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
    2. 2
      If you wish to stuff your turkey, do so lightly and just before it goes into the oven - never stuff your turkey the day or night before. Stuffing can be prepared separately in a covered baking dish. Place in the oven during the last 1/2 hour of the roasting time.
    3. 3
      Place clean turkey, breast up, on a rack in a shallow pan.
    4. 4
      Insert oven-safe meat thermometer into the thickest part of the inner thigh, just above, but not touching, the thigh bone.
    5. 5
      Roast uncovered - or loosely covered with foil. If you choose to baste your turkey, limit the number of times you open and close your oven - once an hour is sufficient. Opening the oven will alter the length of cooking time.
    6. 6
      Roast until thermometer reads 170°F (77°C) for an unstuffed turkey or 180°F (82°C) for a stuffed turkey. (See roasting chart below for approximate roasting times.).
    7. 7
      Remove turkey when cooking is completed and let stand 15 to 20 minutes to allow the juices to set.
    8. 8
      APPROXIMATE ROASTING TIMES.
