Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Pat turkey dry and brush with melted butter to help the seasoning stick. Season with 1 tsp. of seasoning per lb. of turkey. Place turkey breast-side-up on a roasting rack in a roasting pan that is at least 2 inches deep. (Tip: If you don’t have a roasting rack, use rolled up foil or veggies like sliced onions and carrots to keep the turkey off the bottom of the pan.) Roast for about 15 min. per lb. of turkey or until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees at the inner thigh and 160 at the thickest part of the breast. Let turkey rest for 30 min. before carving and serving.
