Q:

How do you roast a turkey in a Reynold's turkey bag?

Quick Answer

To make a simple roast turkey using a Reynold's Oven Bag, unfold an oven bag, add 1 to 4 teaspoons of flour, and shake the bag to evenly disburse the flour.

To boost flavor, add onions, carrots or celery to the contents of the oven bag, and roast them with the turkey. While they are necessarily eaten once the turkey is finished cooking, the vegetables season the outside of the roast and pan juices for gravy. Reynolds Oven Bags accommodate a whole turkey up to 24 pounds. Cooking times vary depending on the size of the bird and temperature accuracy of the oven, but a good rule of thumb is to roast a turkey for 13 minutes for every 1 pound of turkey at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. An alternative method is to use a meat thermometer and cook until an internal temperature reaches 180 degrees Fahrenheit. This number needs to be measured at the thickest part of the turkey, not close to the bone, which could skew results.
