This may be the best turkey recipe ever! Why? Because it's easy -- the perfect recipe for someone who is roasting turkey for the first time. A mixture of oil and herbs coats the skin and lends flavor and moisture as the turkey slow roasts in the oven. Basting during the second half of the cooking process also infuses the whole bird with flavor. A classic main dish for the holidays!
This traditional French dish was originally prepared by grilling the tenderloin, which is quite lean, between two fattier pieces of meat that were then discarded. Today, we’ve learned to quickly sear the roast and then finish in a hot oven to rare or medium-rare. Serve roast with Bernaise sauce, or an easy red wine and mushroom sauce. Add a side of roasted new potatoes for a simple, yet elegant meal that's perfect for any special holiday.
