  • Step 1

    Thaw turkey and prepare according to package directions.

  • Step 2

    Place turkey breast-side up on the rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush breast with vegetable oil or melted butter.

  • Step 3

    Roast at 350° F. When the breast is golden brown, cover with a loose tent of aluminum foil to prevent over-browning. The turkey is done when a meat thermometer reads at least 165° F in the breast. For easier slicing, let stand 10 minutes.
