Golden Roast Turkey

STOP WORRYING! We are just two tough old birds!

Golden Roast Turkey
Preheat oven to 375

1 (12-14 pound) turkey
Thaw overnight in the refrigerator (8-12 hours)
Remove the neck and giblets
 Rinse the turkey and pat dry


4 tablespoons melted butter
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon pepper


Place the turkey in roasting pan, breast side down
Add next four ingredients together
Pour mixture over turkey
Cover with aluminum foil
Bake for 2 hours
Remove foil and turn the turkey breast side up
Turn  the heat to 435 until the turkey is a nice golden brown,
or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the thigh reaches 165.F
I placed my turkey on the lowest rack and cooked another hour during the browning of my turkey
