  • 1 whole turkey (12-14 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh sage, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C). Rinse the turkey inside and out; pat dry with paper towels.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, sage, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Gently loosen the skin from the turkey breast without removing it entirely. Spread the herb butter mixture evenly under the skin.
  4. Place the turkey on a roasting rack in a large roasting pan. Tuck the wings under and tie the legs together with kitchen twine.
  5. Roast the turkey in the preheated oven, basting every 30 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). This usually takes 3 to 4 hours for a 12-14 pound turkey.
  6. Let the turkey rest for about 20 minutes before carving. Enjoy!
