THE JUICIEST TURKEY EVER
Serve a delicious, anything-but-dry Thanksgiving Turkey, thanks to a savvy, upside-down cooking
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
2 teaspoons ground oregano
2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 (8 to 12-pound) JENNIE-O® Premium Fresh Young Turkey
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 - In small bowl, combine brown sugar, Cajun seasoning, oregano, thyme and garlic powder. Rub turkey with butter and sprinkle with brown sugar mixture. Place turkey in v-rack, upside down, over roasting pan. Cooking your turkey upside down makes for a juicy, tender turkey.
2 - Cook turkey as specified on the package. Roast until timer pops up and turkey is fully cooked,
180°F as measured by a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh. ALWAYS confirm doneness with a meat thermometer. Juices should run clear. Let turkey stand 20 minutes before carving.
