Bacon-Wrapped Turkey

Bacon-Wrapped Turkey


Turkey is great and all, but we just felt it was missing a little something.
  • 1 (11-lb.) turkey
  • 1 large red onion, cut into large wedges
  • 1 bunch thyme
  • 1 bunch rosemary
  • ½ c. (1 stick) melted butter
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • 1 lb. bacon
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Rinse turkey under cold water then pat dry with paper towels. Stuff cavity with onion, thyme, and rosemary then tie legs together and tuck wings in.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together melted butter and seasonings. Brush turkey all over with butter mixture.
  3. Place turkey in a roasting pan. Place strips of bacon on turkey and weave together.
  4. Bake for 3 hours, or until an instant read thermometer inserted into the thigh registers 165°. Check after 2 hours and cover with foil if bacon gets too dark.
