Turkey in a brown paper bag

This recipe is actually my husbands. He is in charge of the Thanksgiving turkey and uses a brown paper shopping bag to allow the turkey to self-baste

Servings

Ingredients

  • 12-14 lb Fresh Kosher Turkey
  • 4 Tbsp Garlic powder
  • 4 Tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 cup fresh rosemary removed from stalk
  • brown paper shopping bag (no writing on bag)
  • 1 cup of water
  • stuffing of your choice

Directions

Preparation

1 clean the turkey
2 carefully separate the skin of the turkey from the breast
3 mix garlic, paprika and salt in a bowl, with your hands rub the mixture under the skin of the turkey, as well as on top of the skin. Cover well.
4 carefully place basil and rosemary under the skin of the turkey
5 place the turkey inside the brown paper bag, breast side up and then place the entire thing in the turkey roasting pan
6 stuff the turkey with the stuffing of your choice (I prefer a fig and almond stuffing)
7 close the bag by crumpling the paper

I am the mother of two and I work full-time. When I have the time I like to cook, but I have to balance being a vegetarian with my husband's love for meat. I am told I make a mean london broil.
