How To Make spicy turkey roast (oven version)

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2
    Remove mesh from the turkey.
  • 3
    Lay turkey our as flat as possible on a cutting board, placing the skin side down.
  • 4
    Combine the garlic, rosemary, pepper and salt in the work bowl of the food processor with the steel blade in place, or in blender.
  • 5
    Turn motor on.
  • 6
    Add the oil, processing until coarsely chopped.
  • 7
    Spread half the garlic mixture over the inside of the turkey.
  • 8
    Reroll the turkey.
  • 9
    Tie firmly with string every two inches to return the meat to its original log shape.
  • 10
    Spread evenly with the remaining garlic mixture.
  • 11
    Place on rack in roasting pan.
