Follow these simple, step-by-step instructions on how to cook your turkey this Thanksgiving using the Flavorseal Seasoned Roasting Bag for a moist, tender, evenly seasoned turkey without the need for basting. Also, cooking in the roasting bag makes cleanup a breeze since there’s no messy pan to scrub afterward - that’s one less thing to worry about during this busy holiday season!
1 turkey (12 to 24 lbs), thawed
1 18″x24″ Garlic Herb Seasoned Roasting Bag
1 large roasting pan (at least 2 inches deep)
** For best results, we recommend that you place the turkey in the seasoned roasting bag in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours or overnight. This resting period will allow the seasoning to transfer to the turkey and lock in the natural juices of the bird.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 300°F.
Step 2: Place the roasting bag in the bottom of a roasting pan with the seasoning side on top. Open the bag.
Step 3: Remove neck and giblets from turkey. Rinse turkey.
Step 4: Place turkey, breast side up, inside the roasting bag. Close the bag so it fits snugly around the turkey and close with the tie. Gently run your hands across the top of the bag to press the seasoning into the turkey.
Step 5: Fold the bag under turkey. Using a knife, carefully cut three 1-inch slits along the top of the bag. Insert a meat thermometer through a slit in the bag into thickest part of the inner thigh or breast.
Step 6: Place roasting pan in oven, allowing room for bag to expand during cooking without touching heating elements, walls or racks.
Step 7: When turkey is cooked, let the turkey rest in the closed roasting bag for 15 minutes. Gently loosen the roasting bag from the surface of the turkey, and carefully cut the bag open. Transfer the turkey to a platter for carving.
Suggested Roasting Times:
|Size of Turkey||Roasting Time||Desired Temp
|12-16 lbs||3 – 3½ hours||180° F||170° F|
|16-20 lbs||3½ – 4 hours||180° F||170° F|
|20-24 lbs||4 – 4½ hours||180° F||170° F|
Note: Cooking at higher temperatures or for longer times may result in undesirable burning.

If you are like many who will be having fish this Friday, we have a super-easy, delicious, and mess-free way to cook fish using our Flavorseal Garlic Herb Roasting Bag that you should try.
What you will Need…
- 1-2 lbs of fish (Any sturdy fish will do – we used grouper, but you can use salmon or any fish that bakes well)
- 1 9X13 Pan
- 1 Flavorseal Garlic Herb Roasting Bag
1. Open the roasting bag and place it in a 9×13 pan with the unseasoned side on the bottom.
2. Rinse the fish before placing it in the roasting bag.
3. Place fish in the seasoned roasting bag.
4. Using a sharp knife, cut three small slits in the bag to allow steam to escape, then press the seasoning side of the bag onto the fish.
5. Place the pan in the refrigerator for up to 30 minutes. The moisture from the fish helps the seasoning evenly transfer as the fish rests in the refrigerator.
6. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Once the oven has reached 300°F, remove the pan from the refrigerator and place it in the oven for 20 minutes.
7. Remove the pan from the oven and carefully open the end, allowing steam to escape before checking the fish for doneness.
8. Remove the fish from the roasting bag with a spatula or other utensil and transfer to a plate. Be careful – it’s hot! Throw the bag away.
9. You’re done! Now add any side you wish such as vegetables or garlic bread to enjoy a delicious meal.
