In a poll, readers chose roasted turkey over deep-fried, grilled, and smoked

Last week we discovered that none of our readers like green bean casserole, and this week our readers voted on their favorite way to prepare turkey.

Most of our readers (63 percent) prefer their turkey roasted; 13 percent of our readers prefer the leftovers in a sandwich.

Deep-fried turkey only received 12 percent of the votes, perhaps because of the potentially dangerous method (as discussed by William Shatner). Smoked turkey got 8 percent of the votes; grilled received 4 percent.

So why roast turkey? Mothers may prefer this method because it is the safest (although it takes the most time). It is also the most traditional preparation method; roast turkey might just signify home for most readers. For first-time Thanksgiving hosts, here's a roast turkey recipe that has never failed. And if you're planning on going the deep-fried method, don't do what Shatner and this guy did.

Herb Butter Roast Turkey Recipe

You can enjoy a Roast Turkey recipe anytime of year, not just at Thanksgiving or Christmas. I love having Christmas in July as it's winter in Australia, a perfect excuse to eat turkey! A deliciously crispy butter basted turkey with fresh thyme and garlic, served with homemade Cranberry Sauce.

Roast Turkey isn't as popular here in Australia as it is in North America. For starters, our Christmas is right in the middle of our hot summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and many Aussies love to enjoy cool fresh seafood at Christmastime. I love the tradition of eating turkey for the holidays.

How to Roast a Turkey

As most turkeys are sold frozen, start by defrosting the turkey a few days before in the fridge. It has to be in the fridge to defrost to ensure that you don't get salmonella. Typically it takes 24 hours to defrost every 5 pounds of turkey. Depending on the size of the turkey, this can take days. The turkeys they sell in Australia tend to be small in size, around the 10 pound range, ensuring a quicker cooking time, less time slaving away over a hot stove!

Some people love to brine a turkey. This will add another day to the process. Brining makes the turkey more tender and juicy. My flavorful brining solution has onions, garlic and spices, which is absorbed into the turkey. This adds flavor and ensures the turkey doesn't dry out. Check out the video below to learn how to make a brine.

Next I choose my herbs and spices that I mix into the butter. I default to fresh garlic, dried thyme, salt and pepper to be combined with the butter, but choose your favorite herbs and spices. You need to carefully loosen and separate the turkey skin away from the turkey breast, without tearing the skin. Rub the whole turkey with the herb butter, including underneath the skin, directly on the turkey breast. Remember to pat your turkey dry with a paper towel before you rub with butter. The butter on the turkey skin will ensure it cooks nice and crispy skinned. I add extra butter on the turkey in the last 45 minutes of cooking, and keep basting it with pan juices.

How Long Do You Cook a Turkey?

For larger birds, just adjust the cooking time. This recipe below uses a 9 lb/4kg turkey, which takes about 2-2½ hours to cook at 350°F/180°C in a fan forced oven. The general rule of thumb is to roast the defrosted turkey for about 15 minutes per pound, or 30 minutes per kilogram. I initially cover it with foil like a tent and remove foil when it's ⅔'s of the way done cooking.

Always use a thermometer to check the internal temperature to ensure the turkey is cooked. Probe into the thickest part of the meat, like the breast or thighs without touching the bone. The internal temp should be at 165°F or 75°C. The turkey will continue to cook when you take it out of the oven by several more degrees, but don't be too eager and take it out too early. I have shared my recipe for Deep Fried Turkey below, if you want a different way to enjoy turkey this Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Roast Turkey Recipe without Stuffing?

When making a roast turkey recipe, I dont put stuffing inside as I don't want to risk uncooked stuffing, and prefer to make an easy Stovetop Stuffing. You can make gravy from the pan juices, or make a tasty Juniper Berry Gravy. If you're in a hurry, you can also make Deep Fried Turkey, which is always a show stopper! If you have all day, then try my Smoked Whole Turkey recipe for a juicy and smokey turkey.

This butter basted turkey recipe has herb butter under skin, which makes the turkey extra tasty. Also I don't roast the turkey neck. I throw it into the freezer for when I make Turkey Stock from the turkey carcass and leftovers.

I love this Roast Turkey recipe, with fresh herbs and garlic. A simple classic enjoyed anytime of year. Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!

For larger birds, just adjust the cooking time. This recipe below uses a 9 lb/4kg turkey, which takes about 2-2½ hours to cook at 350°F/180°C in a fan forced oven. The general rule of thumb is to roast the defrosted turkey for about 15 minutes per pound, or 30 minutes per kilogram. I initially cover it with foil like a tent and remove foil when it's ⅔'s of the way done cooking.

Always use a thermometer to check the internal temperature to ensure the turkey is cooked. Probe into the thickest part of the meat, like the breast or thighs without touching the bone. The internal temp should be at 165°F or 75°C. The turkey will continue to cook when you take it out of the oven by several more degrees, but don't be too eager and take it out too early. I have shared my recipe for Deep Fried Turkey below, if you want a different way to enjoy turkey this Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Roast Turkey Recipe without Stuffing?

When making a roast turkey recipe, I dont put stuffing inside as I don't want to risk uncooked stuffing, and prefer to make an easy Stovetop Stuffing. You can make gravy from the pan juices, or make a tasty Juniper Berry Gravy. If you're in a hurry, you can also make Deep Fried Turkey, which is always a show stopper! If you have all day, then try my Smoked Whole Turkey recipe for a juicy and smokey turkey.

This butter basted turkey recipe has herb butter under skin, which makes the turkey extra tasty. Also I don't roast the turkey neck. I throw it into the freezer for when I make Turkey Stock from the turkey carcass and leftovers.

I love this Roast Turkey recipe, with fresh herbs and garlic. A simple classic enjoyed anytime of year. Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!


Herb Butter Roast Turkey Recipe

You can enjoy a Roast Turkey recipe anytime of year, not just at Thanksgiving or Christmas. I love having Christmas in July as it's winter in Australia, a perfect excuse to eat turkey! A deliciously crispy butter basted turkey with fresh thyme and garlic, served with homemade Cranberry Sauce.

Roast Turkey isn't as popular here in Australia as it is in North America. For starters, our Christmas is right in the middle of our hot summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and many Aussies love to enjoy cool fresh seafood at Christmastime. I love the tradition of eating turkey for the holidays.

How to Roast a Turkey

As most turkeys are sold frozen, start by defrosting the turkey a few days before in the fridge. It has to be in the fridge to defrost to ensure that you don't get salmonella. Typically it takes 24 hours to defrost every 5 pounds of turkey. Depending on the size of the turkey, this can take days. The turkeys they sell in Australia tend to be small in size, around the 10 pound range, ensuring a quicker cooking time, less time slaving away over a hot stove!

Some people love to brine a turkey. This will add another day to the process. Brining makes the turkey more tender and juicy. My flavorful brining solution has onions, garlic and spices, which is absorbed into the turkey. This adds flavor and ensures the turkey doesn't dry out. Check out the video below to learn how to make a brine.

Next I choose my herbs and spices that I mix into the butter. I default to fresh garlic, dried thyme, salt and pepper to be combined with the butter, but choose your favorite herbs and spices. You need to carefully loosen and separate the turkey skin away from the turkey breast, without tearing the skin. Rub the whole turkey with the herb butter, including underneath the skin, directly on the turkey breast. Remember to pat your turkey dry with a paper towel before you rub with butter. The butter on the turkey skin will ensure it cooks nice and crispy skinned. I add extra butter on the turkey in the last 45 minutes of cooking, and keep basting it with pan juices.

    You have hit the spot. There is something about that, and I think it's a good idea.
