1 whole turkey
1 large lemon, cut into halves
Salt and pepper to taste; butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Rub butter or oil over the skin of the turkey until it is completely coated.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and any other seasonings you prefer.
Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat.
Slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up, one on each side,
this way the juice from the lemon will release into the breasts.
Cover and bake for 30-45 minutes. Remove cover and continue to
roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes.
If you’ve followed these steps correctly, your turkey should look like
the one in the picture below. Bon Appetit!
Be careful not to overcook it though, or you’ll end up with this...
