The Best Low Carb & Keto Approved Turkey Recipe

Keto Turkey Recipe

My favorite thing about the holidays is the meals. Let’s be honest here. And what is a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner without the best part – the turkey! I spent a lot of time trying different recipes to come up with one that my whole family enjoyed.

Because my husband and I are living the keto lifestyle, we had to nix our usual brown sugar brine. After taking our favorite parts from several different recipes, we came up with this one! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • Whole Turkey (10 to 14 lbs for this recipe)
  • 1 Celery stalk
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 stick of butter
  • poultry seasoning
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt stick of butter and add seasonings to taste. Rub generously over both sides of the turkey, saving a small amount.
  3. Cut onion into quarters.
  4. Dice garlic cloves.
  5. Add garlic, onion, and celery stalk to the rest of the butter mixture. Place it all in the cavity of the turkey, pouring in any remaining mixture.
  6. Bake for 3 to 4 hours, depending on the size of your turkey, basting with drippings every 30 minutes or so.
