Serves: 8-12
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 3.5 hrs
TIP: Plan for 1 pound of turkey per person.  To plan for leftovers, allocate 1 ½ - 2 pounds per person and have extra turkey for a quick meal on busy weeknights.
  1. Make sure the turkey is thawed and the giblets have been removed.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (177ºC).
  3. Pat the turkey dry with paper towels.
  4. Rub the turkey with olive oil, inside and out.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, inside and out.
  6. Sprinkle dried seasoning generously onto the bird, inside and out.
  7. Stuff the cavity with lemons, garlic, onions, shallots and fresh herbs.  Leave any excess around the bird, in the pan.
  8. Place the turkey into your roasting pan. Add the turkey broth and wine.
  9. Roast the turkey for 3 ½ - 4 ½ hours or until the juices run clear and an instant thermometer reads 180°F (82°C) in the thickest part of the thigh.
  10. Remove the turkey from the oven and let it rest for 20 minutes before carving.
NOTE: Cooking times are for planning purposes only – always use a digital meat thermometer to determine doneness.
