Classic Roast Turkey








Classic Roast Turkey
....A great recipe using convection oven !

Ingredients

* 1 turkey (10 to 30 lb.; see notes)
* Melted butter or olive oil
* Classic Gravy

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Remove and discard leg truss from turkey. Pull off and discard any lumps of fat. Remove giblets and neck (they're often packed in neck or body cavity) and save for classic gravy. Rinse turkey inside and out; pat dry. Rub turkey all over with butter.

2. Place turkey, breast up, on a V-shaped rack in a 12- by 17-inch roasting pan (or one that is at least 2 in. longer and wider than the bird). Insert a meat thermometer straight down through thickest part of breast to the bone. (If using an instant-read thermometer, insert when checking
temperature.)
3. Roast in a regular or convection oven until thermometer registers 160°. (See below for times and temperatures.)
4. If turkey is unstuffed, tip slightly to drain juices from body cavity into pan. Transfer turkey to a platter. Let stand in a warm place, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes, then carve. If thigh joints are still pink (common in an oven-roasted bird), cut drumsticks from thighs, place thighs in a baking pan, and bake in a 450° oven until no longer pink, 10 to 15 minutes, or put on a microwave-safe plate and cook in a microwave oven at full power (100%) for 1 to 3 minutes. Serve with Classic Gravy.

  2. The convection oven from Bizarkdeal has performed way beyond my expectations. Having tried three other brands and returning them because of their inability to cook hot enough, I had almost given up. Then I found the Homeleader halogen oven. For me an oven must be able to cook at temperatures in excess of 400 degrees Fahrenheit - no problem for this oven! My Homeleader earned me lots of praise on Chinese New Year with my crispy pork dish. Even the kids liked what I cooked when I used it! Thanks Homeleader!
