Thanksgiving Turkey Cooking Tips

We’ve compiled our best turkey cooking and roasting tips so you can have a hassle-free holiday.

Thanksgiving is a great time to bring family and friends together for good food and great company. It can also take a lot of time to cook every dish and clean up after. That’s why we’ve compiled our best turkey cooking and roasting tips so you can have a hassle-free holiday. We recommend using a foil tent to prevent over-burning, an oven bag to keep turkey moist, and foil wrapping to speed up cooking times. Learn more about these Thanksgiving tips and tricks straight from our Reynolds Kitchens.

Foil Tent: 

Keep your turkey from over-browning in the oven with a foil tent. To make the tent, crease a sheet of aluminum foil in the center, place over top of the turkey, and crimp the ends of the foil to the sides of the pan. After roasting, the tent will keep meats hot until serving time. Learn more here:

Oven Bag:

Cooking your holiday turkey in an oven bag will help to infuse the flavors and keep the meat moist. Learn more here:

You’ll Need…

Roaster Pans:

Cut out clean-up by baking your turkey in one of our Bakeware Roaster Pans.

Turkey in a Hurry:

Speed up cooking times this holiday with the help of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil. Get started by completely wrapping the turkey in Heavy Duty Foil and cook in a 450 degree oven. Turn back the foil during the last 30 minutes to brown. Learn more here:

Thanksgiving Leftovers:

You can do more with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving than make sandwiches. Start the tradition with your family to make a Friendsgiving brunch using leftovers from the feast the day before. You can also make Turkey Tetrazzini or Spinach Turkey and Wild Rice Soup. Leftover Thanksgiving turkey can also be used to make delicious appetizers, like our favorite Turkey Spinach Sun Dried Tomato Appetizers. And if you really want a sandwich, upgrade it to this tasty Warm Turkey Brie Sandwich.

Don’t Forget Dessert:

The best part of any dinner is dessert. Try our favorite recipes for the perfect Pumpkin Pie, scrumptious Sweet Potato Pie, and tasty Classic Apple Pie.
