Preparation

Step 1

For garlic paste: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange garlic, cut-side up, in 8- by 8- by 2-inch glass baking dish. Drizzle with 6 tablespoons oil. Cover dish with foil. Bake until garlic is very tender but not yet brown, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Uncover and cool 45 minutes.

Squeeze garlic cloves to remove from peel. Place 1 cup garlic cloves in processor (reserve remainder for another use). Add butter, rosemary, mustard, salt, and pepper. Process until almost smooth. Transfer paste to small bowl. (Can be made 4 days ahead. Cover; chill.)

For turkey and gravy: Set rack in bottom third of oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Rinse turkey inside and out; pat dry. Starting at neck end, carefully slide hand between skin and breast meat to loosen skin. Rub 1/2 cup garlic paste over breast meat under skin.

If stuffing turkey, spoon stuffing into neck and main cavities. Tuck wings under; tie legs together loosely to hold shape. Place turkey on small rack set in large roasting pan. Rub 2/3 cup garlic paste all over outside of turkey; reserve remaining paste for gravy. Place reserved turkey parts, onion, celery, and carrot in pan around turkey. Boil wine in medium saucepan 2 minutes. Pour 1 cup wine and 1 cup broth into pan.

Roast turkey 1 hour. Pour 1 cup broth over turkey; cover turkey breast loosely with foil. Roast 1 hour. Pour 1 cup wine and 1 cup broth over turkey. Cover breast and top of drumsticks loosely with foil. Roast turkey 1 hour. Pour 1/2 cup broth over turkey. Roast uncovered until thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh registers 175 degrees, covering any exposed parts of turkey with foil as necessary if over-browning, about 1 hour 10 minutes longer for unstuffed turkey and 1 hour 45 minutes for stuffed.

Remove from oven. Using bulb baster, transfer any juices from main cavity of unstuffed turkey to turkey roasting pan. Transfer turkey to platter; let stand 30 minutes (internal temperature of turkey will increase 5 to 10 degrees).

Pour turkey pan juices into medium bowl; scrape in any browned bits from pan. Spoon off fat from top of juices, reserving 3 tablespoons fat. Strain juices into large glass measuring cup, pressing hard on solids. Add remaining 1/2 cup wine and enough chicken broth to turkey pan juices to measure 6 cups.

Heat reserved 3 tablespoons turkey fat in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; sauté until brown and juices evaporate, about 18 minutes. Mix in remaining garlic paste. Sprinkle with flour and stir until flour begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in 6 cups broth mixture. Bring to boil, scraping up browned bits. Boil until gravy coats spoon lightly, about 8 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Serve turkey with gravy.
