Garlic and Herb-Roasted Turkey Recipe

1 (14-pound) turkey, rinsed and patted dry
Olive oil
1 t. salt
1 t. Italian seasoning
1 t. poultry seasoning
1 t. lemon pepper
2 to 3 heads of garlic, peeled and crushed or minced
1/2 C. chopped fresh parsley
Fresh chopped herbs to taste (sage, oregano, basil, tarragon), optional
2 (10-oz.) packages frozen seasoning blend (chopped onion, celery, bell pepper)
1 orange, peeled, seeded and quartered
1 (16-oz.) can chicken broth, mixed with 1 can water

Preheat oven to 375 F. Rub turkey inside and out with olive oil. Mix together salt, Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning and lemon pepper; rub evenly over turkey, inside and out, followed by the garlic, parsley and fresh herbs (if using).

Place about one cup of the seasoning blend inside the turkey cavity; then scatter the rest in the pan around the turkey. Place the quartered orange inside the cavity. Pour the chicken stock and water into the pan. Lay a piece of foil over the turkey, but do not enclose.

Bake for about three hours, basting occasionally with pan juices, until turkey is bronzed and juices run clear when a thigh is pierced.

Remove from the oven, cover tightly and let stand for about 15 minutes before carving.

Makes 14 to 18 servings
