  • 1 whole turkey (12-14 pounds)
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley, thyme, and rosemary)
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  3. Add the onions and garlic, sauté until translucent.
  4. Add the mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and it evaporates.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the fresh herbs, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper.
  6. Remove the giblets from the turkey and pat dry with paper towels.
  7. Stuff the turkey cavity with the mushroom and herb mixture.
  8. Truss the turkey with kitchen twine to hold the stuffing in place.
  9. Place the turkey in a roasting pan and pour the chicken broth into the bottom of the pan.
  10. Cover the turkey loosely with foil and roast for 2-3 hours, basting occasionally with the pan juices.
  11. Remove the foil during the last 30 minutes of cooking to allow the skin to brown.
  12. Check the internal temperature of the turkey with a meat thermometer – it should reach 165°F in the thickest part of the thigh.
  13. Once cooked, remove the turkey from the oven and let it rest for 20 minutes before carving.
  14. Serve the mushroom and herb stuffed turkey with your favorite sides and enjoy!
