Delicious Holiday Turkey Recipe For 10-12 People

Here's a delicious Holiday turkey recipe for 10-12 people:


- 1 whole turkey (about 12-14 pounds)

Burnt Sacrifice Turkey Classic Herb Seasoning & Rub

- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

- 1 lemon, sliced

- 1 onion, quartered

- 4-5 garlic cloves, smashed

- Salt and pepper to taste

- 4 cups chicken or turkey broth


1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).

2. Remove the giblets and neck from the turkey cavity and pat the turkey dry with paper towels.

3. In a small bowl, mix together the Burnt Sacrifice Turkey Classic Herb Seasoning & Rub with melted butter to create a paste.

4. Carefully separate the skin from the turkey breast and thighs without tearing it. Rub the seasoning paste evenly under the skin, covering the breast and thighs.

5. Season the cavity of the turkey with salt and pepper. Stuff the cavity with lemon slices, onion quarters, smashed garlic cloves, and a handful of fresh herbs.

6. Truss the turkey legs together with kitchen twine for even cooking.

7. Place the turkey in a roasting pan with a rack, breast side up. Pour chicken or turkey broth into the bottom of the pan to keep the turkey moist while roasting.

8. Cover the turkey loosely with foil and place it in the preheated oven. Roast for about 2 hours, then remove the foil.

9. Continue roasting, basting the turkey with pan drippings every 30 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) in the thickest part of the thigh without touching the bone. This could take an additional 2-3 hours, depending on the size of the turkey.

10. Once done, carefully transfer the turkey to a cutting board and tent it loosely with foil. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes before carving.

11. Carve the turkey and serve with your favorite Thanksgiving sides and garnish with fresh herbs.

This recipe should result in a flavorful and juicy Thanksgiving turkey perfect for serving 10-12 people. Adjust the seasoning and cooking time according to your preferences and the actual weight of your turkey.
