Cook Time: 3.5 hrs
TIP: Plan for leftovers by buying a bigger turkey.  Freeze portions of leftover turkey meat and use as a meal starter for busy weeknights.
  1. Make sure the turkey is thawed and the giblets have been removed.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (177ºC).
  3. Pat the turkey dry with paper towels.
  4. Rub the turkey with olive oil, inside and out.
  5. Combine all the dried herbs and spices to make a rub. Sprinkle generously onto the bird, inside and out.
  6. Stuff the cavity with lemons, garlic, onions and fresh herbs.
  7. Place the turkey into your roasting pan. Add the turkey broth.
  8. Roast the turkey for 3 ½ - 4 ½ hours or until the juices run clear and an instant thermometer reads 180°F (82°C) in the thickest part of the thigh.
  9. Remove the turkey from the oven and let it rest for 30 minutes before carving.
  NOTE: Cooking times are for planning purposes only – always use a digital meat thermometer to determine doneness.
