This recipe is one of the simplest ways to roast a Thanksgiving turkey. The butter makes the turkey very moist and enhances the flavor. More water can be added 1/4 C at time during roasting if necessary.


1 (13 lb.) whole turkey, thawed
1/2 C butter
1 C water 


Preheat the oven temperature to 350 degrees.

Remove the giblets and neck from inside the turkey cavity. Clean the turkey well with cold water and pat dry inside and out. Place the turkey breast down in a large roasting pan. Insert 1/4 C of the butter into the cavity of the turkey. Place the remaining 1/4 C of butter around the turkey in the roasting pan. Carefully pour the water into the pan so you don't splash the turkey. Cover the turkey tightly with a piece of aluminum foil.

Roast 3 hours or until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the thigh reaches 180 degrees and juice runs clear.

Serves 12
