  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 (12 pound) whole turkey

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic, rosemary, basil, seasoning, black pepper and salt. Next, wash the turkey inside and out; allow dry. Remove any large fat deposits. Loosen the skin from the breast. Using your hand, spread a generous amount of the rosemary mixture under the breast skin and down the thigh and leg. Rub what is left of the rosemary mixture over the outside of the breast. Use toothpicks to seal skin over any exposed breast meat. Place the turkey on a rack in a roasting pan. Add about 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the pan. Roast in the preheated oven 3 to 4 hours, or until the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 180 degrees F.
