Turkey in a Bag


     large size turkey bag
  •      12 pounds whole turkey
  •      salt and pepper to taste
  •      2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  •      3 stalks celery
  •      1 large onions, quartered
  •      1/2 apple
  •      garlic powder
  •      paprika
  •      rubbed sage
  •      rosemary


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2.  Rinse turkey and remove giblets. 

3.  Place apple in cavity, sprinkle inside with rosemary and sage inside cavity.

4.  Sprinkle turkey with garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste.  Paprika will help the turkey brown.

5.  Sprinkle the bottom of a turkey size oven bag with flour. Place turkey, celery and onions in the bag. Seal bag and poke several holes in it with a fork.

6.  Bake 3 to 3 1/2 hours, or until internal temperature of the thigh meat reaches 180 degrees F (85 degrees C).

*This turkey was delicious; however, for a 14 lb turkey, it only took just over 2 hours to cook.
