Butterfly your Turkey and Take Hours Off Cooking Time
Get this time saving tip! Butterflying your turkey significantly cuts down on roasting time in your range, which means moister meat and more time for you to enjoy your family. You’ll have more time to spend with family and perfect your other 10 awesome Thanksgiving dishes. Your turkey, prepared this way will taste incredible in our Architect Series II range. Here is an amazing butterflied turkey recipe from our friend, The Skinny Chef.
- 1 10-pound turkey, giblets and neck removed, well rinsed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more to taste
- 2 tablespoons lemon peel (from one medium lemon), chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the turkey on a cutting board, breast side down. With a pair of poultry shears, start to butterfly the turkey, by snipping about 1/2 inch to either side of the backbone. Press open the turkey and place it cavity-side-down on a large baking tray with sides. Discard the backbone or use it to make turkey stock.
Using your finger tips, loosen the breast meat from the skin to make space for the herb mix. Place the olive oil, lemon peel, rosemary, and salt in a small bowl and mix to combine. Using a teaspoon, spoon the herb mixture in between the skin and the meat of the turkey breast.
Salt the outside skin of the turkey and drizzle with olive oil to taste. Roast the turkey 45 minutes. Decrease the heat to 350°F and roast for about 2 1/2 hours more, adding a little water to the baking pan (so the drippings don’t burn) ever 30 minutes until the turkey is cooked through. To test for doneness, place an instant read thermometer between the thigh and the joint of the turkey leg. The thermometer should read between 180°F and 185°F. Rest 15 minutes before slicing to be sure the juices redistribute, then slice and serve immediately.
