Turkey in a Bag
Be aware, however that the skin of a turkey cooked in a roasting bag will not be as crisp.
You may place the bird under the broiler for a few minutes to brown up.
The seasonings are suggestions, just use your favorites if you wish.
1 medium onion
2 celery stalks
1 to 2 TBS butter, softened
homemade garlic powder
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp sage
salt and ground pepper to taste
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Spray the inside of the bag so the skin doesn't stick to it. Grease a 9x13 inch oven dish.
Clean the turkey pieces well and rub with butter. Sprinkle both
sides of the turkey with the seasonings. Carefully place the turkey
pieces into the bag and arrange the celery and onion around the meat.

place in a 9x13 pan. Make six 1/2" slits on the top of the bag. Bake
until thermometer reads 180 degrees. If it is stuffed, it will take 30
