Notes about this recipe

  • anya_sf on December 03, 2017

    My bird wasn't kosher, so I salted it overnight. Next time I'd buy a kosher turkey or salt it longer. It was only 10 lbs and I didn't need all the truffle butter, only ~ 2 oz. Roasted it almost 2.5 hours. The legs were perfectly done, but the breast was rather dry. Again, more salting would probably help. The truffle butter dripped to the bottom, so the only parts of the turkey where you could taste it were the back, parts of the thighs, and the skin. The flavor was delicious where it was noticeable. I'm not sure I'd do this again though, unless I can find a way for the flavor to permeate the bird. The roasting method is very easy. My favorite of Ina's roasted turkey recipes is the Accidental Turkey; I highly recommend that one.
