PREHEAT oven to 450˚F. Remove neck and giblets from turkey; rinse turkey and pat dry. If desired, loosely stuff turkey. Brush with oil.
TEAR off a sheet of ALCAN® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil 2 ½ times longer than turkey. Place turkey lengthwise in centre of foil sheet.
CLOSE foil loosely by overlapping the ends. Turn up short sides of foil to hold in juices. Do not seal airtight. Place foil wrapped turkey in roasting pan at least 2 inches deep. Insert a meat thermometer through the foil into the thickest part of the inner thigh, not touching bone.
ROAST turkey until meat thermometer reads 180˚F. For stuffed turkey, add 30 minutes to roasting time. To brown turkey, open and turn back foil 30 minutes before roasting is finished. For easy slicing, cover turkey with foil and let stand 15 minutes.
TIP: Estimate 1lb per person for generous servings with leftovers.
