Lemon Turkey Recipe

Ingredients:1 whole Turkey (weight is dependant on how many servings are required)
1 large lemon, cut into halves
sprig of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer

Heat oven to 350 degrees Rub butter or oil over the skin of the turkey until it is completely coated. Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat. Slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up. This way the juice from the lemon will coat the breast. Season skin of the Turkey to your preference, and place sprig of rosemary into it. Cover and place in oven until done. Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the bird. If you've followed these steps correctly, your Turkey should look like the one in the attached photo. Bon Appetite!
