  3. Place turkey in a large bowl or large plastic bag and season the turkey with seasoning blend making sure to evenly distribute throughout cavities and skin.

  5. Place all ingredients for Bouquet Garni in cheesecloth, tie with butcher’s twine.

  6. Preheat oven to 350°F. Adjust oven rack to lowest position.

  7. Remove turkey from the marinade and place in a roasting pan. Place bouquet garni inside cavity. Tuck wings under turkey and tie both legs with butcher twine. Pour reserved marinade over turkey. Sprinkle additional salt and pepper over turkey.

  8. Cover with aluminum foil and roast for 1 ½ hours.

  9. Uncover and baste with 4 oz. of butter. Continue roasting approximately for 2 hours* or until internal temperature registers 160°F, basting every hour with additional butter and pan juices. Larger turkeys will require more roasting time.
