The Turkey's in the Bag!

This is a very easy way to make a Thanksgiving turkey using an oven bag. The bird will be perfectly moist when done, and you can make gravy out of the juice that forms in the bottom of the bag. Plus, cleanup is a snap!

12 pound turkey
2 tbsp butter
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
5 stalks celery, cut in chunks
2 large onions, quartered
1 head of garlic, halved
1 turkey size oven bag

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Rinse turkey and remove giblets. Pat dry. Rub with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle the oven bag with flour and shake to coat. Place turkey, celery, onions and garlic in the bag. Seal bag and poke several holes in it with a fork. Bake 3 to 3 1/2 hours, or until internal temperature of the thigh meat reaches 180 degrees F .
