What You'll Need

To make an herb butter rub for your Thanksgiving turkey, you'll need butter, garlic powder, sage, basil, black pepper, and salt.


Mix the Rub

In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter with all of the herbs and spices.


Spread on the Turkey

Rub the butter mixture over the outside of the turkey. Put the turkey inside a poultry bag and place in a large roasting pan.


Roast the Turkey

Cook at 325 degrees and baste with juices halfway through cooking time. When the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees remove and allow to rest.


Serve the Turkey!

Slice the turkey and place on a serving platter. Save the pan drippings to make turkey gravy! Tap the link below to get the full recipe.
