  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Shake flour in Reynolds(R) Oven Bag; place in large roasting pan at least 2 inches deep. Spray inside of bag with nonstick cooking spray, if desired to reduce sticking with large turkeys.

  4. Place turkey in oven bag on top of vegetables.
  5. Close oven bag with nylon tie; cut six 1/2-inch slits in top. Insert meat thermometer through slit in bag into thickest part of inner thigh not touching the bone. Tuck ends of bag in pan.
  6. Bake according to times below* or until meat thermometer reads 180 degrees F.
  7. Let stand in oven bag 15 minutes. Cut open top of bag. Use two carving forks, inserting one in each end, to lift turkey from bag.


  • Reynolds Kitchens Tips:
  • How much to buy? Estimate 1 pound of turkey per person for generous servings with leftovers.
  • For lightly stuffed turkeys, add 1/2 hour to bake time.
  • If turkey skin sticks to oven bag, gently loosen bag from turkey before opening.
  • When your turkey is baking in the Reynolds® Oven Bag, it's being infused with all the flavors and stays moist and juicy as it cooks. Plus, cleanup is a snap!
  • *Roasting times:
  • 1 1/2 to 2 hours for 8-12 pound turkeys
  • 2 to 2 1/2 hours for 12-16 pound turkeys
  • 2 1/2 to 3 hours for 16-20 pound turkeys
  • 3 to 3 1/2 hours for 20-24 pound turkeys
