There are a zillion options to season your turkey, but let’s just stop here for a second and talk about this Rosemary Dijon Roast Turkey. First, we brined it, second it was rubbed down with Rosemary Dijon blend and basted several times through the roasting process with butter and the pan jus. The cavity was filled with halved oranges and fresh herbs and let me tell you, this bird was so juicy (thanks to the brining technique) and flavorful that it was gone in a flash. Whether you’re a STUFFED or an UNSTUFFED, we have a quick cooking time guide for you below to help you roast your best bird.
