​How to Roast Turkey Halves

​When cooking half a turkey, season cavity as for whole turkey. Place turkey, cut side down, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Rub skin with oil or butter, if desired. Cover turkey with a loose tent of foil.

Roast following the guidelines in the Roasting Timetable. Remove foil during last 30 - 40 minutes of cooking and baste turkey with pan drippings.
