Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. poultry seasoning, divided
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ¾ tsp. crushed dried thyme leaves, divided
  • ½ tsp. salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 (16 lb.) Butterball® Whole Turkey, thawed, if frozen
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1-½ cups chicken broth
