🦃 🤯 TURKEY HACK: THE BEST EVER + NO BASTING! 1 Step: Set It and Forget It 🤎

Are you in charge of the turkey this year? If you are, this turkey hack is going to be a game changer. No more setting a timer to baste the turkey, no more stressing about it drying out 🥳


Preheat oven to 350F, remove middle rack, only leaving the lowest rack you have
Remove turkey from bag
Remove bag of giblets, set aside to use in other recipes, if desired
Place on roasting pan or make your own
Butter outside, inside and under the skin (I use 1 stick of butter)
Salt & Pepper outside and inside of bird
Fill cavity with citrus, veggies & herbs (I use an orange, onion, celery, rosemary & thyme)
Cork cavity opening with half an apple
Tie legs, dress the wings
Soak 1 pkg of cheesecloth in 2 sticks of butter, drape over turkey, completely covering your bird
Bake 13 minutes per pound. My turkey took exactly 3 hours. Internal temp should read 160-165. Let rest for at least 20 minutes, longer if possible.

NOTE: Do not open the oven while cooking. You don’t need to check it and more importantly, you’re not basting it! Resist the urge to peek, just let the magic happen 🤗

Happy Thanksgiving!
