    Ingredients

  • 1 (5 -20 lb) fresh or frozen turkey (thawed) or 1 (5 -20 lb) turkey breast (thawed)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 12 ounces chicken broth (can use part beer or white wine)
  • 1 -2 tablespoon mayonnaise

    How to make it

  1. 1. STEP

    Place turkey or turkey breast in a roasting pan.

  2. 2. STEP

    (I use a disposable roasting pan) Combine melted butter and chicken broth.

  3. 3. STEP

    Pour over turkey.

  4. 4. STEP

    Rub mayonnaise all over turkeys exterior.

  5. 5. STEP

    Salt and pepper lightly if desired.

  6. 6. STEP

    Roast at 300°-325°F until internal temperature reaches 170°F on an instant read thermometer. (I raise the temperature to 350° for the last approximate 30-45 minutes to crisp skin).

  7. 7. STEP

    (I roast my 18-20 lbs. fresh turkey at 250°F in a convection oven. It takes about 4 hours to reach the correct temperature.).

  8. 8. STEP

    Remove from oven and let sit for about 30 minutes before slicing.

  9. 9. STEP

    Note: because the butter and broth are for making gravy, if you need to make a lot of gravy, double the amount of both.

  10. 10. STEP

    To make gravy: pour pan drippings into a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add 1 Tbls. cornstarch per cup of broth/drippings to 1/4 cup cold water. (Youll usually need 2-3 Tbls) Mix well to dissolve. Stir cornstarch mixture into broth and stir until thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste. If too thin, dissolve more cornstarch in water and add until desired thickness. If too thick, add water or more broth to thin.
