Roast Turkey in the Bag

I have yet to find that turkey recipe to end all turkey recipes.  We rarely cook a whole bird anymore, as it is too much for our small family, and we get sick of turkey sandwiches, turkey pot pies, turkey ice cream, and whatever else you have to do to make it interesting.

This recipes sounds very good.  Give it a shot this Thanksgiving and tell everyone you brown bagged your bird!

Roast Turkey in the Bag

 1 10 lb. Turkey

2 packages Pepperidge Farm stuffing

¼ lb. butter

1 onion, chopped

¾ cup chopped celery

1 tsp. poultry seasoning

1 can chicken broth

½ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

½ cup Wesson oil

Sauté onions and celery in butter. Add poultry seasoning and chicken broth. Pour over bread crumbs in large bowl. Add salt and pepper and mix. If not moist enough, add some water. Stuff both cavities and close with skewers. Grease turkey with butter and place in a large paper bag. Twist end of bag and tie with string. Heat oil and brush onto bag so bag won’t burn. Place in open pan. Roast in oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 and roast about two and a half hours. When ready to remove from bag, slit bottom and let juices run out. Cool 20 minutes and serve.
