Herbed Roast Turkey
Why This Recipe Works
For a roast turkey recipe that would produce a bird with powerful, aromatic flavor through and through, we made a vertical slit in the breast meat and, using a paring knife, created an expansive pocket by sweeping the blade back and forth. This created a void into which we could rub a small amount of herb paste. Along with three other herbal applications—underneath the skin, inside the cavity, and over the skin—we had a recipe that gave every bite of turkey an herb flavor.
