My sister and mom has given this Roasted Turkey recipe to me back in 2017 and I decided to share this. My sister gave me the turkey recipe and my mom gave me the stuffing recipe. This is a fairly easy Roasted Turkey recipe. 

Description: This Roasted Turkey is enhanced with garlic flavor

Prep time:  45 min        Cook time:  4 to 6 hours         Servings: Varies

Skill level:  Medium    Category:   Main           Method: Baking, Sauteeing, Cooking

Equipment:  Roasting pan

Ingredients:

For Turkey:

14-16 LB turkey

1-2 garlic heads, peeled and grated

¾ cups Mayonnaise

Salt 

pepper

For stuffing:

2 celery sticks

2 carrots, peeled

1 medium onion, peeled

How to make Roasted Turkey:

First wash the turkey inside and out, let the water leak and pat dry and place it in a roasting pan. Rub salt and pepper on turkey. Then mix mayo and grated garlic together. Take the mixture and rub it under the skin of the turkey, in the cavity, legs, wings, on top of skin and all over. Massage the turkey. Cover and refrigerate it overnight to marinate it.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Stuff turkey with chopped celery, carrots and whole onion. Tie turkey legs with turkey twigs. Bake at 350 degrees F (do 20 minutes per pound). My turkey baked for about 4 hours and 40 minutes. Remove turkey from the oven when the thigh registers at 180 degrees F and breast registers at 165 degrees F. When removed from the oven, the temperature will continue to slightly rise. Let it rest for 20 minutes, then baste the turkey. Let it rest for another 40-50 minutes before serving. The longer it rests, the juicier it will be.
