Easiest Roasted Turkey Recipe Recipe

Sometimes you come across these dishes, which are so tuned, that literally no other dish can take away its place. This is the story behind this turkey. Today I will be sharing a personal family recipe, which has been composed throughout generations, resulting in one of the most easiest, yet flavorful and juiciest Thanksgiving dishes you'll ever try.

Last year I shared this turkey recipe on Mom's Dish Facebook page and have received much great feedback from you, which has prompted me to make this part of Mom's Dish collection. The "awesomest" part of this recipe is that it is so easy to make and will turn out perfect, I can almost guarantee you. So, go for it, hit up a party at your crib and impress everyone by baking this giant chicken (that's what my son calls it)!

Serving size:
    • 1
    • Turkey; (about 15lb)
    • Pepper & Salt; enough to rub all sides of turkey
    • 2
    • Large Onions
    • 3
    • large Carrots

You would need to purchase turkey several days before. Let turkey defrost, remove turkey giblets(Tip: Giblets make delicious broth for rice or a noodle soup).
Dice onion into large chunks. Using salt and pepper, rub it all over the turkey, you can even go under the skin. Stuff it with onion pieces. (Tip: Don't worry about over-seasoning, over the period of a few days, the seasoning will soak inside the meat and the flavor will be spread evenly.)
Combine mayonnaise with garlic parsley salt. Rub turkey with the sauce mixture and cover it with a plastic wrap. Let the turkey marinate for at least 48 hours. (Tip: This marinating process with mayonnaise will provide great moisture to the turkey, making it come out moist.)
Remove the excess marinate and onions from the turkey, drain any extra juices. Clean and chop the carrots into large chunks. Stuff the turkey with cooked rice and carrot pieces.
Bake the turkey at 400F for 90 minutes, turn the heat down to 350F and bake the turkey for another 3 hours. (Tip: It is very important to bake the turkey inside a turkey roasting pan or an oven bag)
