Tony’s Oven Roasted Turkey
Prep Time: 45 Minutes • Cook Time: 210 Minutes • Serves: 12-14
  1. Put oven rack on the lowest level. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Make sure turkey is completely thawed.
  3. Pat the turkey dry with paper towels.
  4. Remove giblets from turkey.
  5. Season the turkey inside by injecting it with Tony’s Creole-Style Butter Marinade. Use as much as you would like. Be sure to space out the injection sites so the marinade goes throughout the entire turkey.
  6. Lightly season the inside of the turkey with Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning.
  7. Season the turkey outside by gently lifting the skin of the bird up and using your hands to carefully massage Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning under the skin. Then coat the outside skin of the turkey with Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning.
  8. Place turkey in a roasting pan and put it in the oven.
  9. Allow turkey to roast for 3-3 ½ hours, or until the meat thermometer reads 165°F when inserted into the thickest part of the breast.
  10. Remove the turkey from the oven and cover loosely with foil.
  11. Allow bird to sit for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
