  1. How to Make Classic Roasted Turkey

Place oven rack in lowest position. Preheat oven to 325°F. Place roasting rack in shallow roasting pan. Mix sage, garlic, paprika, pepper and salt in small bowl.

2. Place turkey, breast-side up, in prepared pan. Brush turkey with oil. Sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over turkey. Cover loosely with heavy duty foil.

3. Roast 2 hours, adding an extra 15 minutes per pound for larger turkeys. Remove foil. Roast 1 hour longer or until internal temperature in thigh reaches 165°F, basting occasionally with pan juices. Remove turkey from oven. Let stand for 20 minutes. Transfer to platter or carving board and slice. Reserve pan juices to make gravy or to serve with turkey.

4. Test Kitchen Notes:
Herbs and spices including garlic powder, sage, paprika and black pepper add delicious flavor in this oven roasted turkey recipe. Brush with oil first for a gorgeous, golden, crispy skin, for a turkey that’s sure to be a statement centerpiece on your table.

After the turkey is finished roasting, you’ll be left with savory drippings and browned cooked bits at the bottom of your roasting pan — perfect for making a scrumptious herbed turkey gravy, classic turkey gravy or mushroom onion gravy.
