Recipe of the Week

Paper Bag Turkey


1 Whole Turkey

Butter, soft but not melted

Salt and Pepper to taste (Garlic Salt optional)

1 Large Brown Paper Bag


Preheat oven to 325°F.  Remove neck and giblets.  Rinse the turkey and pat dry.  Stuff if desired.  Thoroughly coat the turkey with butter using fingers or paper towel.  Season generously.  Place the turkey in the paper bag.  Seal the bag with staples, paper clips, or a needle and thread.  Use 2 bags if needed.  Place the turkey on a sturdy shallow baking pan.  Bake at 325°F for about 5 hours.  Reduce cooking time to about 4 hours for a small or un-stuffed turkey.
