Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Cook juicy and tender turkey ever time with Reynolds Kitchens® Turkey Oven Bags!


  • 1 Reynolds Kitchens® Oven Bag, Turkey Size
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 12 to 24 pound turkey, thawed
  • Vegetable oil


Step 1

PREHEAT oven to 350°F.

Step 2

SHAKE flour in Reynolds Kitchens® Oven Bag; place in roasting pan at least 2 inches deep. Spray inside of bag with nonstick spray to reduce sticking, if desired.

Step 3

ADD vegetables to oven bag. Remove neck and giblets from turkey. Rinse turkey; pat dry. Lightly stuff with your favorite stuffing recipe, if desired. Brush turkey with oil. Place turkey in bag on top of vegetables.

Step 4

CLOSE oven bag with nylon tie; cut six 1/2–inch slits in top. Insert meat thermometer through bag into thickest part of inner thigh, not touching bone. Tuck ends of bag in pan.

Step 5

BAKE until meat thermometer reads 180°F, 2 to 2 1/2 hours for a 12 to 16 lb. turkey, 2 1/2 to 3 hours for a 16 to 20 lb. turkey, and 3 to 3 1/2 hours for a 20 to 24 lb. turkey. Add 1/2 hour for stuffed turkey. For easy slicing, let stand in oven bag 15 minutes. If turkey sticks to bag, gently loosen bag from turkey before opening oven bag.

Step 6

REYNOLDS KITCHEN TIP: Estimate 1 pound per person for generous servings with leftovers.
