Ingredients

Turkey
10-16
pound turkey
1 1/2
cup softened butter
2
tablespoons fresh thyme, minced
1
tablespoon sage
1/2
tablespoon fresh rosemary
1
tablespoon lemon zest
3
garlic cloves, minced
1
tablespoon salt
1/2
tablespoon black pepper
Gravy
1/2
cup turkey drippings
1/2
cup flour
4
cups chicken broth
1
teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

1

For the turkey, preheat The Big Easy® fryer at high temperature

2

Combine the softened butter with the thyme, sage, rosemary, garlic, lemon zest, salt and black pepper. Mix well until all herbs are evenly incorporated.

3

Loosen the turkey skin with your fingers by working your hand between the breast and the skin. Place about 2 tablespoons of the seasoned butter under the skin of each breast. Then, brush the outside of the turkey with the remaining butter.

4

Place the turkey in The Big Easy® fryer and insert the instant read thermometer in the deepest section of the breast. Cook until the internal temperature of the birst reaches 165 degrees F.

5

Remove the turkey from The Big Easy® fryer and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

6

For the gravy, pour the turkey drippings into a fine mesh strainer to remove any chunks. Place 1/2 cup of drippings into a saucepan and slowly whisk in flour over medium/high temperature to get a roux.

7

Gradually whisk in the 4 cups of chicken broth, then add the black pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes and serve.
