Thanksgiving Recipes! Empty Apple-Shallot Roasted Turkey

Post  Guest on Fri Nov 06, 2009 2:58 pm

Apple-Shallot Roasted Turkey

Prep Time: 30 mins
Cook Time: 2 h 10 mins
Total Time: 2 h 40 mins


•12 pounds turkey
•2 tablespoon oil, canola
•2 tablespoon parsley, fresh
•3 sprig(s) parsley, fresh
•1 tablespoon sage, fresh
•3 sprig(s) sage, fresh
•1 tablespoon thyme, fresh
•3 sprig(s) thyme, fresh
•1 teaspoon salt, Kosher
•1 teaspoon pepper, black ground
•1 1/2 pounds shallot(s)
•1 medium apple(s), tart
•3 cup(s) water


1. Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 475°F.

2. Remove giblets and neck from turkey cavities and reserve for making Turkey Giblet Stock.

3. Place the turkey, breast-side up, on a rack in a large roasting pan; pat dry with paper towels.

4. Combine oil, chopped parsley, sage, thyme, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the herb mixture all over the turkey, under the skin and onto the breast meat.

5. Place herb sprigs, 6 shallot halves and apple in the cavity. Tuck the wing tips under the turkey. Tie the legs together with kitchen string. Add 3 cups water to the pan.

Roast the turkey until the skin is golden brown, 45 minutes.

6. Remove the turkey from the oven. If using a remote digital thermometer, insert it into the deepest part of the thigh, close to the joint.

7. Cover just the breast with a double layer of foil, cutting as necessary to fit. Scatter the remaining shallots in the pan around the turkey. Reduce oven temperature to 350° and continue roasting until the thermometer (or an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh without touching bone) registers 165°F, 1 to 1 3/4 hours more. If the pan dries out, tilt the turkey to let juices run out of the cavity into the pan and add 1 cup water.

8. Transfer the turkey to a serving platter (reserve pan juices and shallots) and tent with foil.

9. Make Cider Gravy. Let the turkey rest for 20 minutes. Remove the string and carve.
