 Ingredients List

  • 1 fresh turkey breast, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 oven bag for turkey, 8 to 24 pound size
  • vegetable oil spray
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 large vidalia onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons of salt
  • 2 tablespoons garlic pepper
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sage


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Shake flour in oven bag; place in large roasting pan at least 2 inches deep. To reduce having the turkey stick to the bag, spray inside of bag with nonstick spray. Chop onions, celery and carrots and place in oven bag. Rub softened butter liberally all over turkey. Sprinkle salt, garlic pepper, thyme, and sage all over turkey (inside too!).
2. Place turkey in oven bag on top of vegetables. Close oven bag with nylon tie; cut six 1/2- inch slits in top. I recommend inserting a meat thermometer through slit in bag into the turkey to monitor cooking temperature. Tuck ends of bag in pan, careful that bag is not overhanging pan.
3. Bake 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, or until meat thermometer reads 165°F. Note: I allow a little more time so that I can brown the top of the bird to a beautiful, golden color. Don”™t be afraid to use your broiler at the very end, if necessary. Just don”™t walk away from it if you do. Allow turkey to stand in bag for 15 minutes before opening and carvings. Reserve bag liquid for gravy.
