Easy Herb Butter Turkey

This is the easiest turkey you will ever make but also the juiciest, most crowd pleasing, and memorable turkey you will ever make! I opt for no breaded stuffing here and just fill the turkey with fruits, veggies, and herbs that leave the turkey so moist and flavorful! The garlic herb butter smothered all over leaves the skin golden brown and crispy!

The rule of thumb for cooking your turkey is 13 minutes for every pound – just make sure you let your turkey thaw for a few days before you need to cook it!

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 2+ hours Total Time: 2 ½ hours


1 Turkey (roughly 10 pounds)

2 sticks Plant-Based Butter

4 Garlic cloves, minced

Poultry Herbs (Rosemary, Sage, Thyme)

Salt & Pepper to Taste

2 Apples

2 Yellow Onions

2 Lemons

1 Orange

  1. Preheat your oven at 325F.

  2. In a bowl combine your butter, garlic, salt, pepper, & poultry herbs until evenly mashed together. I recommend shredding your Sage and chopping your rosemary before adding.

  3. Prep your turkey by removing the giblets and patting the outside dry.

  4. Quarter your apples, onions, lemons, and orange.

  5. Stuff the inside of your turkey with as much of your fruit & onion as possible and place the leftovers around your turkey in the pan.

  6. Smother (yes, smother) the outside of your turkey with the garlic-herb butter.

  7. Put in the oven uncovered and set the timer for 13 minutes for every pound of turkey you have. For my 10 pound turkey, 2 hours and 10 minutes was perfect!

  8. Let your turkey rest for 20 minutes before carving.

If you want to make a quick gravy, cook the giblets on the stove with about a cup of water to create a broth and gravy base. Remove the giblets and add in the drippings from the Turkey. Add a tablespoon of cornstarch or other thickening agent (ie. arrowroot powder, tapioca starch, potato starch) and cook until it starts to thicken! Add salt as needed.
