Make a great Turkey easily


Traditional Turkey done easily and in half the time!
Here is how to make a great Turkey:
For those of you that need help or want to know how I make my turkey. Here is a quick rundown.
Making a turkey is so easy. I do not know why people don't do it all the time. It is a simple affordable meal for those meat lovers out there (which does not include me). My turkey ends up juicy and tender every single year. My secret? I have 3. 
1: Cook the turkey breast side down. This allows all the juices to flow back through the breast. 
2: After cleaning out the insides of the turkey, place one solid stick of butter inside it and close the legs back up.
3: Cook it in a Reynolds oven bag. This allows for constant basting and half the cooking time. Be sure to cut a little hole in the top of the oven bag before cooking so that it doesn't pop in the oven. I am telling you, cooking your turkey this way is foolproof! You will end up with a moist turkey that falls off the bone.
What you need:
1 completely thawed turkey 
1 stick of butter
olive oil
italian seasoning
1 tsp each salt and pepper
1 reynolds turkey oven bag
Process:
Clean out the insides of the turkey. Wash and pat it dry. Stick the butter in the belly of the turkey and close back up the legs. Rub the turkey down with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Sprinkle and rub italian seasoning all over the outside of the bird. Sprinkle and rub on Salt and Pepper. Put bird breast side down in a reynolds oven bag. Put 1 TB Gluten Free Flour in the bag to help absorb the gravy juices. Put the bag with the bird (breast side down) in a broiler pan. Cut a slit in the bag at the very top so it can breath and close it with the little plastic bag closer that they give you. Cook according to the size and weight chart the reynold's oven bag gives you. Usually it takes about 3 hours to cook.

I promise it will be the best turkey you have ever had. Moist fall off the bone meat. Just like my hubby likes it.
