Of course, the first thing you need is a fresh turkey. The components will base on the size of the bird, but for reference, an 18-pound turkey will require one unsliced loaf of bread, one stick of unsalted butter, two tablespoons of salt, two teaspoons of black pepper, and a seasoning mix, which is optional. You will also need a butcher’s twine and a roasting pan.



Start by setting up the oven and pre-heating it to 425 ° Fahrenheit.

Then, grab the bread and carefully slice the top hump to keep it level. Afterward, partially slice the bread lengthwise. It should still be connected at the center joint.

The bread will serve as a base and replacement for a steel rack that often damages the turkey.

Open the bread and position it inside the pan. Next, cover the entire inside area of the loaf with the unsalted butter.

Following that, mix the salt and pepper. Sprinkle it all over the turkey, both inside and out. You can also add the seasoning mix at this point if you choose.


To position the turkey, fold the neck skin and tuck it under the body. Place the wings under the breasts, as well, and finish off by tying the legs together using the butcher’s twine.

Then, place the turkey on top of the pan, but remember to set it upside-down. Grab the salt and pepper again and sprinkle on the turkey’s inverted side.

Cook the turkey for 45 minutes, then take it out of the oven to lower the temperature to 350 ° Fahrenheit. Next, it’s time to flip the turkey with the correct side up.

Cook the turkey for 90 minutes more, but make sure you baste it every 15 to 20 minutes.


You will know the turkey is perfectly cooked when you place a thermostat into the thickest part of the turkey’s upper leg and the internal temperature shows 165 ° Fahrenheit.

The last step is to let it rest for 30 minutes before serving.



In 2017, the show received a special award equivalent to the Oscars of the food world, according to the Martha Stewart website.

Joseph and producers Samantha Schutz and Greta Anthony received the award of Best Video Webcast during the James Beard Media Awards.
