A question about a recipe: Butter And Herb Roast Turkey

D0cf4c02 1ef9 484d a12d cec3b3db00b4  webfood52 11 06 12 7989

I have a question about the recipe "Butter And Herb Roast Turkey" from sdebrango. I'm using a pre-brined turkey. Would this recipe work for this type of turkey, or would it be too salty? Has anyone used a brined turkey with this recipe? Any input modifications would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Christin although I have never used a pre brined turkey before I would just cut the salt, you could still put unsalted compound butter under the skin and cook it exactly the same way. If someone has experience with this maybe they can weigh in but can't think of anything different you would do except not used all the salt. Let me know how it goes.

Yes please do, you usually get a lot of juice from the turkey using this method, you may get even more with a brined turkey so be aware of that. I use part of the liquid for gravy and save the rest because I always use the carcass for stock/soup. Best of luck and Happy Thanksgiving.
