Roast Turkey with Fresh Sage

Appropriate for:


1 teaspoon canola oil
1-12 pound fresh turkey
½ yellow onion diced
1 bunch fresh sage (.75 oz)
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning


Remove giblets and turkey neck from the cavity. Wash the turkey inside and out; pat dry. Remove any pinfeathers from the skin. Sprinkle the cavity with poultry seasoning and place the diced onion and fresh sage in the cavity. Oil the bottom of the roasting pan and place the turkey inside. Bake in a pre-heated 350 oven for 2 ½ to 3 hours; the juices should run clear when you stick your fork between the drumstick and thigh bone. Remove from the heat, cover with foil and let rest 20 minutes before serving.
