Homestyle Turkey, The Michigander Way


  • Servings: 1
  • 1 (12 pound) whole turkey
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 4 cups warm water
  • 3 tablespoons chicken bouillon
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons seasoning salt


    Preparation Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 5 hrs

    Ready Time: 5 hrs 10 mins

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees f (175 degrees c). rinse and wash turkey. discard the giblets, or add to pan if they are anyone's favorites.
  • place turkey in a dutch oven or roasting pan. separate the skin over the breast to make little pockets. put 3 tablespoons of the butter on both sides between the skin and breast meat. this makes for very juicy breast meat.
  • in a medium bowl, combine the water with the bouillon. sprinkle in the parsley and minced onion. pour over the top of the turkey. sprinkle seasoning salt over the turkey.
  • cover with foil, and bake in the preheated oven 3 1/2 to 4 hours, until the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 180 degrees f (80 degrees c). for the last 45 minutes or so, remove the foil so the turkey will brown nicely.
