2-Hour Turkey, Really.

I ran across this recipe a few years back from my local grocery store. I was VERY skeptical that one could actually cook an entire turkey (regardless of size) in about 2 hours and have it be edible. Well, not only does this actually work, it produces the BEST roasted turkey I’ve had to date. NO MORE GETTING UP AT 4 a.m. to start the holiday turkey, NO MORE BASTING. It’s so incredibly fast and easy. It has become the only way I roast turkeys. Turkey…it’s not JUST for holidays, anymore. The biggest turkey I made this way was 22.5 pounds. It took about 2 hours 15 minutes to cook. WOW.
-Thank you, thank you! This recipe saved the day! The turkey was already stuffed so I went with it. My son who is a cook helped me think through improvising since
I had myself all Worked up. I put the lid on the roaster to make sure the stuffing came up to temp. I did use the one inch of water and basted every 15 min with the butter/stock combo. We rotated the roaster and the turkey. We only ate one hour later than planned only bc I was fussing With the turkey When I would have been making the mashed potatoes, gravy, etc. if I hadnt told anyone they wouldn’t have known the difference. But I felt I had to explain the delay. Thank goodness for the internet, google and helpful sites such as yours.
