World's Easiest Turkey

Thanksgiving Recipes - Roast Turkey You make this turkey starting the night before with the oven on at 250 degrees. Allow 18 hours to cook, so if you're serving at 4pm, put the turkey in at 9 or 9:30 pm beforehand.

  • Line a roasting pan with several sheets of aluminum foil so that they overlap the pan and can cover anything that's placed in it.
  • Put in one clean turkey (about 15 lbs.) and season according to taste.
  • Add a cup of water.
  • Use the overlapping foil to cover the turkey loosely and set to bake.
  • While it's baking, you can prepare the sides and set them in the fridge to bake the next day.
  • Now, go to bed.
When the turkey is done, open up the foil, baste the bird, turn the heat up to 350 degrees, and crisp the top. [Note: If you feel you must, you can pull the turkey out once or twice during baking, at any time, and baste it. This is not mandatory.]

Take the turkey out to rest and carve the turkey during dinner. If you're not an expert carver, pull it apart. Aesthetics be hanged. The meat will nearly fall off the bone.

Eat and enjoy!
