Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Place the butter, garlic, sage, rosemary, thyme, parsley and salt and pepper to taste in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth.

2
Done

Season the cavity of the turkey with salt and pepper, then stuff with the onion, lemon and assorted herbs. Tie the turkey legs together with kitchen twine.

Rub the herb butter all over the outside of the turkey and under the skin of the breast. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3
Done

For 45 minutes, cook the turkey in a roasting pan. When the turkey is cooked, lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and roast the bird for an additional 30 minutes, basting it with chicken broth every 30 minutes.

The turkey will be ready when a meat thermometer put into the thickest portion of the bird thigh reads 165 degrees F, which will take around 3 hours.

4
Done

If the turkey seems like it's getting overly browned during the cooking process, cover it with foil.
Remove the turkey from the oven and tent loosely with foil. Let the turkey rest for 25 minutes. Slice, then serve.
