Recipe: Classic Roast Christmas Free-Range Bronze Turkey with Herb Stuffing

Ingredients:

For the Turkey:

  • 1 Christmas Free-Range Bronze Turkey (size according to your guest count)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, and sage), for seasoning

Herb Stuffing:

  • 8 cups of day-old bread, cubed
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh sage, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup chicken or turkey broth

Instructions:

Herb Stuffing:
  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the diced onion, celery, and garlic. Sauté until they are softened.
  2. Add the fresh herbs and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Place the cubed bread in a large mixing bowl. Pour the herb and vegetable mixture over the bread.
  4. Gently toss to combine, then drizzle with the chicken or turkey broth to moisten the stuffing. Set aside.

The Turkey:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
  2. Remove the giblets and neck from the turkey cavity. Rinse the turkey inside and out and pat it dry with paper towels.
  3. Season the turkey cavity with salt and black pepper.
  4. Gently loosen the skin on the breast and rub softened butter underneath the skin and all over the turkey.
  5. Season the outside of the turkey with salt, black pepper, and a sprinkle of fresh herbs.
  6. Fill the turkey cavity with prepared herb stuffing.
  7. Place the turkey on a rack in a roasting pan, breast side up.
  8. Roast in the preheated oven, allowing approximately 15 minutes of cooking time per pound. Baste the turkey with pan juices every 30 minutes.
  9. The turkey is done when the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) in the thickest part of the thigh.
  10. Allow the turkey to rest for about 30 minutes before carving.
