I started using Reynolds oven bags, for my turkeys, not long after they appeared, on the grocer’s shelves. I was hooked immediately. Tender, juicy, and flavorful, the best roasted turkey, I ever tasted. There is no need for seasonings, or butter. Just stuff it, and pop it in a bag. If that wasn’t enough, to sell me, I also wound up with a lot more, of its rich broth, still in the bag, to make, ‘The Best’ noodles, and gravy.
Then, about 10 years ago, a friend told me, she bakes her turkeys at 200*F. overnight, and wakes in the morning, to a fully cooked turkey. I was a bit skeptical, at first, but I crossed my finger’s, and gave it a try. It was cooked through, but not browned, so I turned the temperature to 375*F. for 30-minutes…Perfect!
Plus at that temperature, you don’t have to worry about it burning, it could probably stay in the oven, for several more hours.
Now I have plenty of room, to bake the ham, breads, and sides, and have dinner ready before noon.
If you’re like me, and cook for a humongous family. This is a life-saver! After I have been baking, all week, I’m ready to get this over with.
