Description

When you bring this browned bird to the table, your guests might be tempted to pull out their phones and take photos, but the turkey's beauty is not just skin-deep. A butterflied bird cooks more quickly and evenly than a conventional one, and most people feel it's easier to carve. You'll need sturdy kitchen scissors or poultry shears to cut out the backbone before roasting so you can flatten the turkey. Some butchers will also do this step for you. The recipe is a Yummly original created by David Bonom.

    The hardest part of this was cutting out the backbone; however, it was worth it! I let mine rest for about 30 minutes while I was finishing up the rest of the meal and it was perfectly moist and tender. Even my dad who doesn't like turkey enjoyed it!
