Who knew that mayonnaise was the key to making a super moist roasted turkey? Hellmann’s did and we totally agree!


  • 10 lbs. fresh or frozen whole turkey
  • 1 cup Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Knorr® chicken flavor bouillon
  • 1 large shallot or onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 turkey gravy mix, prepared according to package directions


  Prep Time: 15 min. • Cook Time: 3 hrs. + 20 min. resting

Preheat oven to 425°. Remove giblets from turkey cavities and rinse turkey inside and out; pat dry with paper towels; set aside.

Combine mayonnaise, bouillon, shallot and herbs in medium bowl; set aside.

Starting at neck opening, gently loosen skin on turkey and evenly spread half of the mayonnaise mixture under skin. Tie legs together with kitchen string.

Arrange turkey, breast side up, in large shallow roasting pan with rack; rub remaining mayonnaise mixture over outside of turkey. Tent with heavy-duty aluminum foil and roast for 1 hour.

Decrease oven to 350° and roast turkey 1-1½ hours. Remove foil and continue roasting, about 30 minutes, basting occasionally with pan juices, until thermometer inserted in thickest part of the thigh reaches 165° and skin is browned and crispy.

Let stand covered loosely with foil 20 minutes before carving. Serve with hot, prepared Knorr® Roasted Turkey gravy mix .
