This easy recipe is followed by 3 easy steps:

Step one

Preheat oven at 325F and place turkey on a rack over a roasting pan.

Step two

Take a bowl and mix garlic, mustard, herbs, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. This makes a thick paste. Now use your hands to loosen the skin and smear half of the paste on the meat directly. Spread the remaining paste evenly on the skin. Now pour wine on the bottom of the roasting pan.

Step three

Roast turkey for 2 hours or until golden brown. If the breast is over-browning cover it with aluminium. When the turkey is bake cover it with foil and leave on room temperature for 15 minutes. Slice and serve with pan juices.

    Rosemary and olive oil is one of my favorite flavor combinations that I only recently discovered. After I graduated from college, I got my own place and started cooking for myself. This is where I made my discovery. Since then I have done it on so many different plates but I have yet to try it on turkey. I know it goes great with chicken so I am going to have to give this a try this week!
