Cola Roast Turkey


  • Servings: 1
  • 1 (16 pound) whole turkey - thawed, neck and giblets removed
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups cola-flavored carbonated beverage (such as coke®)
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


    Preparation Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 4 hrs

    Ready Time: 4 hrs 25 mins

  • preheat oven to 325 degrees f (165 degrees c).
  • wash the turkey well, and pat dry with paper towels. use your hands to slather the whole turkey, front and back, with butter. make sure to butter the wing tips and leg ends. place the turkey into a roasting pan, and pour the cola over the turkey. sprinkle the whole turkey with salt and black pepper.
  • roast the turkey for 4 to 5 hours, checking for doneness after 4 hours. baste the turkey every 30 minutes with the turkey drippings. if the breast skin browns too quickly, cover it with aluminum foil. an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 180 degrees f (82 degrees c). remove the turkey from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
