Preheat the oven

Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C).

Prepare the turkey

Remove the giblets and neck from the turkey cavity. Rinse the turkey inside and out with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

Prepare the glaze

In a small saucepan, combine the honey and unsalted butter. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts and the mixture is well combined.

Prepare the seasoning

Mince the garlic cloves. Remove the leaves from the thyme stems and finely chop them. In a small bowl, mix the minced garlic, chopped thyme, salt, and black pepper.

Season the turkey

Rub the seasoning mixture all over the turkey, including the cavity.

Roast the turkey

Place the seasoned turkey on a rack in a large roasting pan. Roast in the preheated oven for 3 to 3 1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature of the thigh reaches 165°F (74°C).

Glaze the turkey

During the last 30 minutes of cooking, brush the honey butter glaze all over the turkey every 10 minutes, creating a golden and crispy skin.

Let the turkey rest

Remove the turkey from the oven and tent it loosely with aluminum foil. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes before carving to allow the juices to redistribute, ensuring a moist and tender result.

Carve and serve

Carve the Honey Glazed Whole Turkey and arrange the slices on a serving platter. Serve hot, accompanied by your favorite side dishes and the pan juices.
