Easy Thanksgiving Turkey:

Remove the inside contents from the turkey, wash and pat dry. Spread salt and pepper inside and outside the turkey. Make with fresh herb butter (I used sage, thyme, marjoram and garlic and butter), spread on the turkey, under the skin when you can. Bake the turkey in a turkey roaster in a pre-heated oven at 500F for 20 minutes without lid. Then Reduce heat to 350F, cover and bake until the temperature indicator pops up. If you are making dressing, bake it separately. I butter the turkey neck and bury it inside the stuffing. Bake for 40 minutes at 350F. Enjoy!

I love your ideas on How to Cook a Turkey. You offer some great tips for making your meal taste great. Another great resource for holiday recipes that would be great for the holidays is Better Recipes. They have so many great ideas for turkey, as well as for all the leftovers. While I do work for them, I use them all the time because they have an amazing supply of recipes. They are really worth looking into.

Sounds divine! I'm roasting a turkey today for the first time ever by myself. I have the general idea, but I think your recipe is the one I'll use today. It sounds simply perfect.
