Additional Information

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325ºF. Position oven rack at the lowest level of the oven.

Step 2

In medium bowl, whisk together salad dressing, wine, salt and pepper. Slice onions into 1 in. thick rings. Chop 2 rings into 1 in. pieces. Place slices in roasting pan and place chopped onion into turkey cavity. Slice 2 lemons in half and place in roasting. Slice remaining lemon into quarters and place into turkey cavity.

Step 3

Place turkey, breast side up, on top of sliced onions and lemons. Brush marinade on turkey and inject under skin. Tie legs together and tuck wings under turkey.

Step 4

Cooking time is determined by weight. Plan on 3 to 4-1/2 hours for a 12-18 pound bird. Turkey is done when thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast and thickest part of the thigh away from bone registers 165ºF-170ºF. If skin is becoming too brown while baking, lightly tent with foil.

Step 5

Allow turkey to stand 15-20 minutes before carving. Garnish with additional fresh herbs, if desired.
