Re: help with turkey

Oh, one thing about the bag, make sure you cut the bag open as soon as the turkey is done or it could deflate and stick to the breast skin. Not terrible but it can ruin the appearance if you serve the bird whole at the table.

Re: help with turkey

you have to get pretty up close and personal with it.. but yummy turkey for days is so worth it! 1-take the giblets and neck out. 2- rinse the turkey inside and out and pat dry with paper towels inside and out. 3- coat inside with poultry seasoning 4-slice up a bunch of carrots, celery, onion (quartered), peel some garlic cloves and pack the turkey cavity until you cant possibly fit anything else. 5- put the pan on a cookie sheet 6-shake a couple of tablespoons of flour around in the bag, put in on the cookie sheet and layer all of the extra veggies in the bottom. 7- get your turkey in there all snug 8-cover turkey with butter and lots more poultry seasoning.. dont forget to get under the skin too! 8- tie up bag, make you slits and cook according to directions that come with the bag according to the weight of the turkey. 9- i always just check doneness by how "loose" the leg is. with a bad it would take A LOT to dry it out. 10- let rest about 20 mins and dive in

it really isnt hard.. just trying to be detailed. this method is seriously fool proof!
