Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325°F.
Remove neck and giblets from turkey cavities. Rinse turkey; pat dry with paper towels. Free legs from tucked position. (Do not cut band of skin.) Using rubber spatula or hand, loosen skin over breast, starting at body cavity opening by legs. Spread 2 Tbsp. mustard inside body cavity; spread remaining mustard onto meat under skin. Use wooden toothpicks to secure skin at opening. Return legs to tucked position; turn wings back to hold neck skin in place.
Place turkey, breast side up, on rack in shallow open pan; brush with oil.
Bake 3-1/2 hours to 3-3/4 hours or until done (165°F), covering breast loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Remove from oven. Let stand 15 to 20 min. before carving. Discard toothpicks before serving.
Prepare using GREY POUPON Country Dijon Mustard.
How to Thaw a Turkey
Thaw a frozen turkey, breast-side up, in its unopened wrapper on tray in refrigerator. Allow 5 hours per pound to completely thaw the turkey. Never thaw frozen meat on the countertop at room temperature.
