Turkey Cooking Tips: 5 Steps to Help You Roast the Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey!

Don’t let that turkey intimidate you this Thanksgiving. Here are five tips to roast it perfectly from the National Turkey Federation

  • Use a shallow roasting pan that’s at least 2 inches longer and wider than the turkey so oven air can flow completely around it. 
  • Chopped celery, onion and carrots stuffed in the cavity add flavor. 
  • Add 1/2 cup water to the bottom of the pan. 
  • Roast at 325 degrees F until a meat thermometer registers 180 degrees F in the thigh and 170 degrees F in the breast. 
  • Allow turkey to rest for 20-25 minutes before carving!

Happy Thanksgiving!
