It’s Thanksgiving week all week long here are RMK. Hopefully you will find some things that will help you out with your meal for the big day. This year I decided to take pointers from my good friend Tina from Mommy’s Kitchen for the bird. She tried this brown bag turkey method out last year.
Now you might be thinking the same thing I was at first, won’t the brown bag catch on fire? According to Tina, paper catches fire at 451 degrees. Since we are cooking the turkey at 375 degrees there should be now worries. However, I must admit I keep my fire extinguisher handy just in case.
Now the main reason to use the brown paper bag over an oven safe roasting bag is that the bag is breathable allowing the turkey to roast. It turned out golden and beautiful. My husband said, “Now that’s the way to do a turkey.” The thing that is funny is my hubby also said last year when I used a savory brine on the turkey. I must say the turkey was so moist and delicious.
Be sure to check out the giveaway page today because I am giving away a few turkey’s to help a couple of you out with your Thanksgiving dinner.
