3Peel the onion, and place inside the Turkey along with a couple ( 2 or 3 ) of cloves of garlic and 2 rosemary sprig. The rub the outside of the turkey with the butter all over the breast. Then salt and pepper. Place rosemary sprig on top of the turkey and several cloves of garlic in the bottom of the pan. Add the water last to the bottom of the pan.
