Counting Our Blessings


Happy Thanksgiving one and all!



Super Moist Baked Turkey

from the book “365 Quick, Easy & Inexpensive Dinner Menus”

by Penny E Stone

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: Depends upon weight of turkey



1 whole frozen turkey, thawed


1 Quart chicken broth

1 Turkey sized cooking bag

1 Large roaster pan

3 Stalks celery

2 Large onions

Remove the neck and sweet breads from inside the turkey cavity. Generously rub salt on inside of bird and all over the outside. Prepare cooking bag according to directions. Put turkey in cooking bag. If you want to serve stuffing or dressing with your turkey, prepare that now and stuff the cavity with the stuffing. If you choose not to prepare stuffing, then insert celery stalks and onions inside turkey.

Pour chicken broth over turkey. Close cooking bag. Here’s the secret to keeping your turkey moist: Turn the turkey breast-side DOWN and place in the roasting pan. This way, all the cooking juices will continually flow down through the white breast meat. By using a cooking bag, the entire bird will bake up moist and delicious. Bake turkey according to the time recommendations on the packaging of the turkey.

  1. I’ll be trying the recipe for Christmas – hope it’s good! Didn’t even realize this was a 2006 posting. I’m guessing this post is no longer on the front of your blog (unless you write really, really, really, slow).
