DescriptionLooking to roast a home-cooked Thanksgiving turkey with some chef shortcuts thrown in? Sourced from Plainville Farms in the heart of Amish country in New Oxford, PA, our deliciously tender and juicy turkeys are humanely raised without antibiotics. They're rubbed with our chef's divine herb butter and come nestled on a bed of our mixed veggie mirepoix of carrots, onion, and celery with fragrant garlic cloves, fresh sage, and sprigs of thyme. The bird arrives in an aluminum pan ready to slide into the oven—just add salt and pepper to taste.Plates and cutlery are not included but are available in our Plates & Utensils category. Platter serving utensils are included.Heating Instructions
Our oven-ready turkey comes fully prepped and ready for you to cook in your oven. Allow approximately 3 hours total time from pre-heating your oven to slicing your fully-cooked bird.
To Get Started:
Adjust oven racks, placing one on the bottom shelf and one on the top shelf. Preheat oven to 350°F (about 15 minutes).
While the oven is pre-heating, take your turkey out of the refrigerator and remove the pan from the plastic bag. Discard the bag and the parchment paper covering the bird. Leave the plastic band around the legs intact for easier handlingremove before carving.
Add 1 cup of water or stock to the bottom of the pan. Season your bird to taste with salt and pepper.
To Cook Your Turkey:
Place the turkey pan in the oven on the bottom rack. Set timer for 1 hour and 30 minutes. When timer goes off, check your bird and baste if desired with pan juices. At this point you should begin to see slight browning. If the pan looks dry, add a bit more liquid to the bottom.
Continue to cook the turkey for an additional 45 - 50 minutes, basting once or twice as desired. Cover with foil toward the end of cooking if it starts getting too browned. To check for doneness, insert the instant-read thermometer that came with your bird into both the thickest part of the breast and the joint between the leg and the thigh. When both places register at least 165° your turkey is cooked.
Allow to Rest and Slice:
Remove your turkey from the oven and tent loosely with foil. Allow to rest for 20 minutes before slicing and serving. For added moistness, spoon pan juices over sliced turkey before serving. Enjoy!
