Roast Your Turkey in a Paper Bag

Roasting the Turkey in a clean big paper bag for the moistest turkey ever. Clean and dress turkey as usual. Take the paper bag, use a coating of oil inside the bag enough to place the turkey onto then place the turkey inside and close the bag up. Put on a rack and tuck inside the pan to roast as usual. Even if you use a pop up pin, check the turkey 20 minutes before time ends. Check the turkey for color you like. Check the drumstick, if it moves up and down, this is the "doneness" check.


If you like, you can remove the bag easy and let it brown even more or even remove the juices. It makes really a lot, no basting needed at all. The turkey is brown and very tender and lots of broth for the gravy.

This was passed to me over 15 years ago by a family friend. I want to share so many will enjoy the turkey the way we do every year. It leaves me time to prep other things and make cookies last minute. I love it, you will too!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All..

Wouldn't that be a fire hazard? Paper in the oven and all?

A good friend often made the best apple pie baked in a brown paper bag with no problems, but I read somewhere not to use brown paper bags because of the chemicals used in the recycling process, that we should use parchment paper. Anyone else heard of this?
