Place veggies on bottom of roasting pan. Add the whole peeled cloves garlic and sprigs of thyme, set aside till later. Cut turkey into 6 pieces or have your butcher do it for you so you have two breasts with wings attached, two drumsticks and two thighs.
Rub the turkey with softened butter and season with poultry and steak seasonings. Place the breast on top of veggies in roasting pan. Pop it into the oven and set timer for 35 minutes. Once the timer goes off, add the thighs and drumsticks and reset timer for 60 minutes. The whole turkey should take an hour and 35 minutes to cook (internal temperature should reach 160°F).
