This recipe for turkey came from a mistake. My son invited us for Thansgiving. When he took the turkey out of the oven, he said "Mom-this turkey doesn't have any meat on it." He had roasted it upside down in the pan. It was the most moist flavorful turkey I had ever eaten! I do it this way quite often now.

How to Make Upside Down Turkey

Step-by-Step

  • 1We used 13 lb turkey, but you can use larger one, just adjust time cooked.

    Set oven for 350 degrees.
  • 2Mix the spices together in butter. Rub the butter mixture over turkey, back & front. Place it in large roasting pan. Roast with top off for 30 min.
    Put top on turkey, roast for remaining time according to turkey directions.
  • 3When roast period is up- check that turkey is at 170 degrees with meat thermometer. Remove from pan, cover with foil & let set for ar least ten minutes. Then Enjoy!
    You will still have drippings for gravy. If not, add chicken broth to pan, scrape drippings in pan then proceed for gravy.
