Patricia's notes for this recipe:
This is a neat shortcut for busy cooks! The finished product reminds me of the great turkey dinners my grandmother prepared when I was a kid. For me, that's the ultimate endorsement.

This is a really cool way to prepare your holiday turkey. It really keeps the turkey moist but it also browns the turkey evenly. I like the fact that is also keeps the oven clean!

We tried this for Thanksgiving. Wonderful! Really kept the turkey moist and flavorful. THe best Thanksgiving turkey I can remember.

Our daughter-in-law cooked the turkey in a bag for Thanksgiving. The recipe was very much like this one. She had marinated the turkey in a brine solution before cooking. It was very moist and was delicious.

I've used this method to great success... and seemingly very little danger. ;) What have you heard is unsafe about this, Kimberly?
