I have always made my turkey in a paper bag, following in my mother's footsteps


  • 1 turkey
  • 1 paper bag


  • Thaw per instructions on turkey and clean well, removing giblets and neck.
  • Butter the inside of a brown paper bag using a whole stick of butter or margerine.
  • Stuff bird if desired.
  • Place bird, breast side up on bag and close (roll or staple).
  • Make small slit where timer is located and allow time to pop up outside of bag.
  • Place in large roasting pan and cook as directed for roasting turkey.
  • When timer pops up remove from oven and open carefully, releasing steam from inside of bag.
  • The best way to slice is to remove the entire side of the breast and cut in half inch slices.
  • For more fun try Mosaic turkey:
  • Before baking, loosen the breast skin on the top of the turkey and carefully put fresh spice leaves between flesh and skin.
