Step-by-step instructions simplify the cooking process.
Preheat oven to 325˚F. Cooking time will vary by size of bird, so check roasting times. Place whole turkey, breast-side up, on a roasting rack inside a shallow roasting pan.
Recommended Roasting Times
If turkey becomes golden brown before it is fully cooked, cover with a loose tent of aluminum foil to prevent over browning. Cut a hole in the foil to view the pop-up timer.
For optimal eating experience, turkey is done when pop-up timer has popped and a meat thermometer, not touching any bone, registers 170˚F in the deepest part of the breast and thickest part of the inner-thigh.
Remove from oven and allow the cooked turkey to stand for 20-30 minutes. This allows the juices to settle and makes carving easier.
