Herb-Crusted Turkey

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Season cavity of turkey with salt and pepper. Place onion, oregano sprigs, and sage sprigs in cavity of bird.
  2. If a band of skin crosses the tail, tuck the drumsticks under the band. If there is no band, tie drumsticks securely to tail. Pull turkey neck skin to back; fasten with a short, wooden skewer. Twist wing tips under back.
  3. In a small bowl combine bread crumbs, snipped sage and oregano, pepper, and salt. Stir in melted margarine or butter; cover and set aside.
  4. Place bird, breast side up, on a broiler pan or wire rack of roasting pan. Roast turkey until thermometer inserted into in center of one of the inside thigh muscles registers 150 degrees F (about 2-1/4 hours). Brush turkey with honey. Using wide metal spatula, pat bread crumb mixture onto bird. Cut band of skin or string between drumsticks so thighs will cook evenly. Arrange pears in bottom of pan around turkey; brush pears with oil. Continue to roast until thermometer registers 180 degrees F (30 to 45 minutes more). Remove turkey from oven. Remove onion and herbs from cavity. Cover; let stand 15 to 20 minutes. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
