Ready Time

4 hrs 25 mins

Servings

13 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
  • ¾ cup butter, cubed
  • 1 ½ cups chopped celery
  • 2 ¼ cups toasted bread cubes
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 ½ tablespoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 apples, cored and halved
  • 3 cups apple juice

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).

Prepare your turkey by removing its neck and giblets.

Gently loosen the skin on the turkey’s breast and insert cubes of butter between the skin and meat.

In a separate bowl, combine chopped celery, toasted bread cubes, and onion.

Season this mixture generously with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Fill the turkey’s cavity with this stuffing and tuck in halved apples.

Place the turkey in a roasting bag and pour apple juice over both the interior and exterior of the bird.

Seal the bag securely and place the turkey breast-side up in a large roasting pan.

Bake the turkey for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees Fahrenheit (85 degrees Celsius) when measured in the thickest part of the thigh.

Once cooked, carefully open the roasting bag and transfer the turkey to a serving platter.

Allow the turkey to rest for 20 minutes before carving and serving.

This resting period will ensure juicy and flavorful meat.
