  • Use a cooking bag for the turkey! It's the easiest way, imo! Green bean casserole is easy, the French's fried onions will have a recipe on the label.

  • I've never tried a turkey in a bag, but I hear they come out decent.. I just roast it regulary, I don't stuff it but I slather it with sage butter (chopped sage, room temp butter, lots of salt & pepper), in the cavity, under the skin, everywhere.. and cover it with foil until about the last 1/2 hour so it can brown. And yeah, you'll find the green bean casserole recipe on fried onion label, or cream of mushroom soup label.. it's hard to mess that up. Don't worry, you'll do great!

  • Yeah, we just follow the recipe on the back of the onions for the GB casserole. I've done the turkey in the bag thing, too, and it turned out really moist and tender. Now we just do a turkey breast in the slow cooker since we don't need a huge turkey. I like my turkey with sage and rosemary on it. Only problem with the slow cooker is it doesn't get crisp on the outside but, so far, no complaints from the family. It was so tender that my youngest at it all up her first Thanksgiving and she was only 7 1/2 months old (her first real meal...and she fed herself).

  • green bean casserole is super easy. this is to make a large casserole dish full:

    4 cans french cut green beans (drained)
    1 large can cream of mushroom soup
    3-4 tablespoons worchestershire sauce
    1 can french fried onions

    in a bowl, mix green beans, soup and worchestershire sauce together. dump out in casserole dish and spread evenly with a spoon. top with french fried onion and bake about 25 min at 350* or until bubbly.

  • Can you deep fry the turkey? Thats the best and also the most simple way to make a turkey (because the guys usually do it)!!!!!

  • I don't know about the casserole but Martha Stewart has an AMAZING recipe for a turkey on her website and it's really easy. You just cover the bird with a cheesecloth and baste it with a mixture of white wine and butter. Good luck cooking!

  • IMO my mom has been using the Reynolds oven bag for 35 years and it keeps in the moisture. It tells you in the box how long to cook and even recipes. It is a a good idea to use a bag your first time.
