We’ve got a secret for the easiest Thanksgiving Turkey. Roast it in a cooking bag – no basting, less cook time and easier clean up.
Nothing is more traditional for a Thanksgiving dinner than a big fat toasted turkey. In fact, I would say, at least at our house, that Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without it.
I remember when I was a little girl watching my Mom cook up at least a 20-24 pound bird every Thanksgiving. And it would always be stuffed with some of the best dressing, aka stuffing, around. Now when she cooked it, it was the old fashioned way, with a large roasting pan, a baster and lots of loving care. Well, I’ve got an easier way for you to fix the star of the Thanksgiving feast and it makes the most moist, delicious turkey you’ve ever had!
What is this easy secret? It’s a turkey cooking bag. I can remember introducing this to my Mom & Dad after I was out on my own and they thought it was the craziest thing they had ever heard. But when I brought out the roasted browned turkey for our big meal they couldn’t believe I had cooked it in a bag. It was that good!
And the cooking bag not only cuts out all the basting, because the bag does it for you, but it cooks in less time and with less mess. Plus it saves all the drippings for some really awesome gravy!
So add this secret cooking method to Thanksgiving this year and you’ll be surprised how hassle-free it is. I can promise you that it definitely reduces the stress level of the big day. And if you’re nervous about how long to cook it and when to put it in the oven just follow our No Stress Thanksgiving planner for step by step instructions.
Enjoy & Happy Thanksgiving!
Wine Pairing: White is always a winner to choose for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Their fruity, refreshing flavors blend with the meal and enhance its tastiness. Choose a Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Viognier or Gewurztraminer. If you prefer reds, stick with a lighter bodied wine with fruit overtones such as a Pinot Noir, Syrah or perhaps a Zinfandel.
