Feathered Feast Turkey Dinner

Rosemary-Infused Feathered Feast Butter


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons Feathered Feast seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (optional, for a little kick)
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, Feathered Feast seasoning, salt, sugar, and ground black pepper (if using). Ensure the butter is at room temperature for easy mixing.
  2. Add the finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves and thyme to the mixture. Blend everything thoroughly to evenly incorporate the herbs into the butter.
  3. Taste the butter and adjust the seasoning and salt as necessary, considering the added rosemary and thyme flavors.
  4. Roll the seasoned butter into a log shape or your preferred form, then wrap it in parchment paper or plastic wrap to seal. You can also use silicone molds for decorative butter shapes if desired.
  5. Place the rosemary-infused butter in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or until firm.

The Juiciest Roast Turkey Recipe:


  • 1 whole turkey (size of your choice)
  • Rosemary-Infused Feathered Feast Turkey Butter (prepared as per the instructions above)
  • Salt and pepper (for seasoning the turkey)
  • Additional fresh sage and thyme sprigs (optional, for garnish)
  • Turkey roasting pan with a rack



  1. Thaw the Turkey: Ensure the turkey is fully thawed, following the package instructions for thawing times.
  2. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
  3. Remove Giblets: Take out the giblets and neck from the turkey's cavity if included. Save them for making gravy if desired.
  4. Rinse and Pat Dry: Rinse the turkey inside and out with cold water. Pat it dry with paper towels.
  5. Season the Turkey: Season the turkey inside and out with salt and pepper. Optionally, sprinkle a little Feathered Feast seasoning on the outside for added flavor.
  6. Apply the Rosemary-Infused Turkey Butter: Carefully loosen the turkey's skin, especially around the breast area. Slide pats of the Rosemary-Infused Feathered Feast Turkey Butter under the skin and spread it evenly to keep the meat moist and flavorful.
  7. Truss the Turkey (Optional): Tie the turkey's legs together with kitchen twine for even cooking and secure stuffing if used.


  1. Place the Turkey in the Roasting Pan: Set the turkey on a rack inside a roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh without touching the bone.
  2. Roast the Turkey: Put the roasting pan in the preheated oven. Calculate approximately 13 minutes of cooking time per pound (0.45 kg) for an unstuffed turkey.
  3. Baste the Turkey: Every 30 minutes, baste the turkey with pan juices or additional melted Rosemary-Infused Feathered Feast Turkey Butter for moisture and flavor.
  4. Tent with Foil (If Needed): If the turkey browns too quickly, tent it with aluminum foil. Remove the foil during the last 30 minutes to allow the skin to brown nicely.
  5. Check Internal Temperature: The turkey is done when the thigh meat reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C), and the stuffing (if used) reaches 165°F as well.

Resting and Serving:

  1. Rest the Turkey: Once done, remove the turkey from the oven and let it rest for 20-30 minutes before carving to allow the juices to redistribute.
  2. Garnish and Serve: Optionally, garnish the turkey with fresh sage and thyme sprigs for a beautiful presentation. Carve the turkey and serve with your favorite Thanksgiving side dishes and gravy.

By following these steps, you'll create a delicious, juicy turkey with the aromatic touch of rosemary-infused Feathered Feast Turkey Butter.
