Always a favourite no matter what the occasion. Place turkey in an uncovered roasting pan in preheated oven at 400F /200C for 30 to 45 minutes or until you hear the skin crackle. Reduce heat to 325F/160C. Cover turkey with lid or foil. Turkey is done when internal temp reaches 170F/77C. Remove turkey from oven, let stand, covered 15 mins before carving to let juices set.
Pour a can of ginger ale over turkey, rub turkey with canola oil, butter or margarine fresh or garlic powder, black pepper and other favourite spices. Add chopped onions to bottom of roaster.
