45-Minute Roast Turkey

Published November 8, 2018

This novel approach to roasting the Thanksgiving turkey allows you to cut the cooking time of the average turkey by about 75 percent while still presenting an attractive bird. Simply cut out the backbone (it’s not that difficult, but you can ask your butcher to do it for you) and spread the bird out flat before roasting.
