  • 1 whole Turkey approximately 12 pounds
  • ¼ cup Butter melted
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • 1 large Red Onion
  • 1 head Garlic
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 tablespoon Erythritol
  • 2 tablespoon Thyme Sprigs
  • 2 tablespoon Rosemary Sprigs
  • 2 tablespoon Sage Leaves
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/450°F/Gas mark 4.
  • Take the giblets out of the turkey and wash the turkey thoroughly, inside and out.
  • Pat the outside of the turkey dry using paper towels.
  • Cut the onion and lemon into wedges.
  • Stuff the cavity with the lemon, onion, garlic cloves, thyme, rosemary and sage.
  • Tie the legs together using kitchen twine or use its own skin to tuck the legs together, and tuck the wings snuggly under the body.
  • Mix the olive oil with the melted butter, add the Erythritol and a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk well and rub the outside of the turkey with the mixture.
  • Fit a roasting rack inside a baking pan and place the turkey on the rack, breast side up.
  • Cook in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350°F.
  • Keep roasting basting with the juices from the pan, until the juices run clear when you cut between the turkey leg and the thigh, for approximately 3 hours.
  • Remove from the oven and cover with tin foil, allowing the turkey to rest for 20 minutes before carving and serving.
