Preparation Instructions

Remove packaging, neck and plastic bag containing giblets (in neck cavity).

Drain juices and dry turkey with paper towels.

Stuff turkey if desired. Combine stuffing ingredients just before using.

Fill neck cavity; turn wings back to hold neck skin in place. Stuff body cavity and return legs to tucked position if they were untucked. No trussing is necessary.

Brush skin with vegetable oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray for best appearance. Additional basting is not necessary.
