Thanksgiving month! Onto the main course, herb garlic butter roasted turkey.
In all honesty, this turkey recipe is pretty similar to my dry-brined roasted turkey with a few extra add ons and upgrades.
First, you guessed it. This herb garlic butter roasted turkey is indeed dry brined. It's my favorite way to moisten up a turkey and get a perfectly golden, crispy skin. No messy liquid taking up all the space in your fridge! Plus it only takes about 5-10 minutes to brine it up and then you throw it in the fridge till Thanksgiving. You do want to let it brine at least 12 hours, preferably 1-3 days. (For more notes and tips on dry brining, head over to my lemon herb dry-brined roasted turkey recipe page).
Second, I upped the ante in the flavor department. There's still lemon and herbs but also...oranges, apples, garlic powder for more all over garlic flavor, and more butter.
Like twice as much. It's awesome 🙌🏻. Makes for the ultimate crispy, golden skin!
PS. If you're looking for a stuffing to go with this herb garlic butter roasted turkey (recipe below!), this cranberry apple sage stuffing is my all time fave 😁.Print
