  • 2 fresh turkey thighs , legs or medium turkey breasts (about 2 lbs**) (add 2 more for four people)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil , divided
  • salt and black pepper , to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons lemon pepper , divided, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning , divided
  • 1 medium sweet potato , peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1-1/2 cups baby potatoes , halved
  • 1-1/2 cups Brussels sprouts , trimmed and halved
  • 1/4 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrots , about 1/2" thick
  • 1-1/2 cups green beans , trimmed
  • 2/3 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries , optional - leave out for Whole 30


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. Season turkey with salt, lemon pepper, one teaspoon of Italian seasoning and one tablespoon olive oil. Place turkey on a large rimmed baking sheet (mine was 10x15) and roast for 15 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, prepare the other ingredients as needed(peel, wash, dry, chop vegetables etc.).
  4. Combine all the vegetables in a large bowl and drizzle with the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil, season with salt, lemon pepper and remaining one teaspoon of Italian seasoning.
  5. Remove sheet pan from the oven and arrange the sweet potatoes, baby potatoes, and Brussels sprouts evenly on the sheet pan, surrounding the turkey. Add a few sprigs of fresh rosemary around the pan.

  6. Return pan to oven and continue to roast. After 20 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and flip the turkey and the vegetables. Add the carrots, green beans, fresh cranberries, pecans, and dried cranberries to the pan arranging evenly around the turkey. Return pan to the oven again and roast for another 15 minutes - or until turkey is fully cooked and reaches 165F internal temperature and vegetables are soft and tender.
  7. Remove pan from oven. Cover loosely with foil and rest for 10 minutes. Carve and serve.

Recipe Notes

**Cooking time varies according to the size of your turkey. If your turkey is more than two pounds, you may want to leave it in longer before adding the carrots and green beans. If your turkey is smaller, just remove from the oven sooner once.
