The first turkey I ever made, and hands down, it was the BEST turkey EVER! Seriously! We had about 20-25 people and my friend was asked to make one of the turkeys for her family. She had an 18lbs turkey. We weren't able to get the fresh herbs but we used this recipe as our base. We used freeze-dried poultry herb by lite house, dried basil, olive oil, salt& pepper, season salt. We used 2 cups olive oil, a whole container of the poultry herbs, 1/4 ounce of dried basil, 4 tablespoons of minced garlic, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp season salt. We lightly sprinkled season salt on the whole turkey (skin). We mixed together all our ingredients and followed the instructions from there. We didn't cook the stuffing in the turkey so we seasoned the inside of the turkey too. We put the turkey in an oven baked bag and poured what was left over from the mixture in the bag. We let it marinade over night. We cooked the turkey breast down so the breast could cook in all those juices. Seriously, this turkey was murdered within minutes and everyone asked for the recipe!
