Rosemary-citrus Turkey

This is my thanksgiving turkey recipe. It is easy, delicious, and makes it so moist. Everything you want in a turkey!


2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary or 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
1-1/2 teaspoons grated fresh or dried orange peel
1-1/2 teaspoons grated fresh or dried lemon peel
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup olive oil

In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Place turkey, breast side up, on a rack in a roasting pan; pat dry. Brush with oil; rub rosemary mixture over turkey.
Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180°, basting occasionally with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.) Cover and let stand for 20 minutes before carving. Yield: 13-15 servings.
