15 Best Thanksgiving Roast Turkey Recipes

Roasting is simple: you put what is being roasted into a hot oven and cook it until it is done. For some reason—a desire for juicy white meat and a reasonable fear of less-than-cooked poultry flesh—roasting the Thanksgiving turkey has been turned into something way, way more complicated that it needs to be. A whole roasted turkey is the centerpiece of almost every Thanksgiving table, but this year you can riff on tradition with a new flavorful recipe. From classic roasted turkey with giblet gravy to a spectacular pancetta-wrapped turkey, here are terrific Thanksgiving turkey recipes.
