Tips + Techniques

Foil Tenting a Turkey

ROAST turkey until a meat thermometer reads 165 F, about 3 to 3 1/2 hours for a 14-pound unstuffed turkey. Remove from oven and let stand for 15 minutes. Remove and discard foil.

TRANSFER turkey to a serving dish. Brush the turkey with the reserved ketchup glaze. Dress the plate with fresh parsley, sauerkraut, ketchup-glazed onions and caramelized onions, then drizzle spicy brown mustard on top of the turkey.
