Thanksgiving Turkey

The Best Thanksgiving Turkey

The perfect juicy and no fuss Thanksgiving Turkey that is exploding with flavor. Not only will this be the only recipe your will ever need for your holiday turkey, but it is also Keto, Whole30 and Paleo

  • Total Time: 3 hours 50 minutes
  • Yield: 16 servings 1x


  • 113-20 pound turkey
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 8 tbsp ghee or clarified butter
  • 1 lemon (cut into fourths)
  • 1 apple (cut into fourths)
  • 1 orange (cut into fourths)



  • If you don’t have a roasting pan, use a disposable foil roasting pan. 
  • Stuffing the turkey with the citrus fruit along with ghee or clarified butter is a MUST. This will make your turkey really juicy. 
  • DO NOT open the oven until the last 15 minutes of cooking.  The butter and fruits along with the consistent steam heating with the aluminum foil will result in a VERY MOIST turkey.
  • Remove the aluminum foil the last 10-15 minutes to ensure a golden brown turkey.
