Mr. Rasa Malaysia and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving in the Midwest, when we were attending our graduate school. We had a pot luck; it was our very first Thanksgiving meal of roasted Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, and rolls. Unfortunately, the store-bought roasted turkey was dry, tough, and chewy, and I have always wanted a great roasted turkey recipe that delivers tender and juicy meat.
Everyone wants an easy and perfect Thanksgiving roasted turkey recipe but it’s not easy to reinvent roasted turkey every year. This year, I am going to share a tried and tested roasted turkey recipe from Martha Stewart Living November issue. The parchment bag turkey caught my attention because the bird looks absolutely moist, tender, juicy, and delicious. When the bird is wrapped with parchment paper, it creates a cozy steam in the packet. This ensures super moist meat throughout. To brown the turkey skin until crackling-crisp, all you have to do is rip the parchment paper open and expose the turkey and let the oven does its job of roasting it. It’s so easy!
If you are still planning your Turkey Day menu, I urge you to try out this roasted turkey in parchment paper recipe on the November issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine, one of my go-to food magazines. You can also check out the recipe here. I have also shared the popover recipe to go with your roasted turkey. Try the recipes and I am sure your family will be pleased.
