Upside Down Turkey

Hi, Guys,

This really does work and comes out great. Janice's family has been doing turkeys this way for three generations now. In fact, Janice made a small turkey for us on Saturday night and it was great!

Ok, the deal with cooking the turkey upside down is this: Take one brown paper bag (a supermarket bag is fine), rub the inside of the bag with margarine and then rub the turkey with a mixture of melted margarine, paprika and fresh chopped garlic. Place the turkey up side down in the paper bag, place in a roasting pan and roast at 350 degrees for approximatey 4-5 hours, depending on the weight of the bird. DO NOT open the oven to baste. You don't need to. Once its done, take the turkey out of the oven and cut open the paper bag. It literally comes off the bones, which is also the downside of this method. Some people like to present one of those Norman Rockwell looking turkeys to the table to be carved and it won't look like that, but it sure will eat better than one cooked the traditional way.

Oh yes, we do stuff the turkey before cooking with Mrs. Cubbison's or a similar brand. Janice adds chopped parsley, onions, garlic, apples and pears to the stuffing and mixes it before stuffing the bird.

Geez Lar..you are SO close, why screw it up with Mrs. Cubbison's? Some stale bread and poultry seasoning and all the other stuff you mentioned, and you've got stuffing!

Yep, that works too, we just never have any stale bread around
It might be worth it just to get a loaf of something and use that instead.

It is, Murphy.

It comes out so moist. Really great and the garlic/paprika rub makes it taste even better. We had it for leftovers last night and there's still some for sandwiches.

My wife buys two loafs for doing just that. She gets plain ol white bread and the night before, she lays it out on the counter to get hard and stale. Odd..it makes the house stink like white bread for a few hours....

Hi, Bill,

Right.

My family does that in preparation for a recipe called ajada (Ah-Jah-Da). This is a Sephardic recipe for a garlic paste that you put on steaks or most any kind of meat. Basically, you take stale french or in a jam, white bread, and blend the insides with lots of fresh garlic cloves and olive oil. It makes a paste that you then place in a container and refrigerate. The container is then put on the table and people spoon it out to dip their seaks in. Yummy, but don't count on anyone one kissing you for days!

My late dad used to tell a story of one time when he and my mom and aunts went to a movie after eating. He said they cleared out two rows around them

Hi, Murphy & Bill,

To answer you both...nope

Ah, That brings back memories. Thanks, Bill.

Now, consider the fact that probably most of the students at CSUN now weren't even born yet when we were there

I was talking to one of my co-workers, the friend of Mark Allyn, about video and video editing. Its amazing how much its all changed since we were in Mr. Burrows' class. At that time, 3/4" tape was state of the art and there was no digital.

I still talk with many people that are in the radio biz and yea, digital has taken over. There are still some places that will cut tape with a razor blade, but the state of the art now is a hard drive, not a "cart".

Hello,
I just came across your recipe for an upside down turkey and I have a couple questions. I have a small turkey about 12lbs. would I still need to cook it for 4-5 hours and once it is cooked does the paper bag turn to mush in the bottom of the pan? Thank you for any info you have.

I now use an electronic therm that has a probe that goes right into the food but the main unit sits outside the oven!

(I have a "thing" about underdone bird)
