  • COOK 4 hrs
  • READY IN 4 hrs 25 mins


Original recipe makes 18 servings

  •  1 (18 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
  •  1 medium onion, peeled
  •  1 large carrot, peeled
  •  1 stalk celery
  •  1 apple, stem removed
  •  1 orange
  •  1/4 cup vegetable oil
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  •  1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  •  1 teaspoon soul food seasoning
  •  1 pound sliced smoked bacon
  • 1 turkey sized oven bag


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Rinse the turkey, pat dry and place in a large roasting pan. Insert the onion, carrot, and celery into the cavity of the bird. Poke holes in the apple and orange so they will release their juices, and stuff them into the bird. You may have to cut some things in half to get them all inside. Spread oil all over the outside of the bird, and season with salt, pepper and soul food seasoning.
  3. Place the turkey into an oven bag, and set back into the pan with the breast facing up. Lay strips of bacon over the entire top. Close the bag.
  4. Roast the turkey for about 4 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees F (82 degrees C) when taken in the thickest part of the thigh. Let the turkey rest for 10 or 15 minutes before carving, and use the drippings in your favorite gravy recipe.
