- Stuffing from Classic Stuffing Recipe
- Olive Oil
- Stuff turkey with chilled stuffing just before you place it in the oven. Place oven rack in the lowest position and preheat to 325°. Set turkey, breast down, on a rack in roasting pan. Brush or rub turkey skin with olive oil. Cover loosely with lid or tent with foil so the juices run back down into the pan. Roast for one hour. Turn turkey over, basting every 45-60 minutes with olive oil. Remove cover for last 45 minutes of roasting to brown skin. Cook until breast & inside of thigh temperatures register at least 165-170°F and the juices run clear. Begin checking turkey with meat thermometer 45 minutes to an hour before recommended cooking time. Allow to rest 15 minutes before carving.
