How-To Video: Roasting a Turkey

Transcript: How-To Video: Roasting a Turkey
Roasting a perfect turkey. It’s easier than you think and It all begins with a delicious Jennie-O Turkey Store Turkey.

First, thaw the turkey by following package instructions.  Pre-heat the oven to 325-degrees.  Remove the turkey neck and the giblets from the appropriate cavities.  Rinse the turkey thoroughly inside and out with cold water.  For a picture perfect turkey, tuck the wing tips under the shoulders.  Place the turkey, breast side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.  Place a foil tent over the breast.  Place the turkey in the oven.  Remove foil tent after the first 1 to 1 ½  hours of roasting to allow for browning.  Roast the turkey until the internal temperature reads 170 degrees in the breast – approximately 15 - 20 minutes per pound.  Allow the turkey to stand 20 minutes before carving.

No need to wait for a special occasion – simply create one!  For additional cooking information, recipes and more – visit jennie-o-dot-com.  The perfectly roasted Jennie-O Turkey Store Turkey – just another reason to “look at turkey now.”
