Here’s how to make this Easy Oven Roasted Champagne Turkey:

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
  • ½ cup butter, cubed
  • 2 apples, cored and halved
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ⅔ bottle Champagne (or sparkling apple cider)
Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Rinse turkey, and pat dry. Gently loosen turkey breast skin, and insert pieces of butter between the skin and breast. Place apples inside the turkey’s cavity. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place turkey in a roasting bag, and pour Champagne over the inside and outside of the bird. Close bag, make a slit on both sides of the bag near the top, and place turkey in a roasting pan.

Bake turkey 3 to 3 1/2 hours in the preheated oven, or until the internal temperature is 180 degrees F when measured in the meatiest part of the thigh. Remove turkey from bag, and let stand for at least 20 minutes before carving.

Notes

Be sure to flour the inside of the bag lightly so the turkey skin doesn’t stick to it while baking. Get the turkey oven bags here.
