Easy STAR Butter Flavored Olive Oil and Herb Roasted Turkey

Try this simple and tasty recipe this year to get a turkey that is perfectly browned on the outside while being both tender and juicy on the inside.
Easy Olive Oil and Herb Roasted Turkey
  • 1 (12 pound) whole turkey, thawed if frozen, neck and giblets removed, and rinsed and patted dry
  • 3/4 cup STAR Butter Flavored Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups water

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place turkey in a roasting pan with a lid.
2. In a small bowl, combine STAR Butter Flavored Olive Oil, dried basil, 2 sprigs of the rosemary chopped, salt, and black pepper. Using a basting brush, apply the mixture to the outside of the uncooked turkey. Place the remaining sprigs of rosemary inside the turkey. Then pour water into the bottom of the roasting pan, and cover.
3. Bake for 3 to 3 1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the
thigh measures 180 degrees F (82 degrees C). Remove bird from oven, and allow to
stand for about 30 minutes before carving.
