I usually use the bags too because the turkeys always turn out so moist with no muss or fuss. Since we just had a turkey breast this time I just roasted it without the bag. It was still nice and juicy but I had to remind myself to baste it now and then.

The turkeys turned out great (along with everything else!)
Mom roasted a 14 pounder with stuffing on the side and made regular mashed potatoes, gravy, candied sweet potatoes, green beans, kielbasa and sour kraut. Lil Sis#1 baked all of the pies, pumpkin, apple and two of the Jello/whipped cream type pies, red skin mashed potatoes and baked mac and cheese. Lil Sis #2 brought a spiral sliced ham. Lil Bro and his wife brought pumpkin rolls. My son and I roasted two duck,(one orange glaze and one cherry glaze), made garlic mashed potatoes,(yeah our family likes taters) and a hominy, chorizo and cheese cassarole. When we got to Mom and Dad's, we deep fried two more turkeys and two rabbits. Dad also made a big pot of Manhatten clam chowder. It was a very nice day,(even though it rained). We fed 16 family members plus a few neighbors.

I had a eggplant sandwich. I was sick and I ordered out. It was too salty, BTW. Crap.

My mom and I cooked two turkey breasts and they turned out moist and juicy. We started cooking turkey breasts a few years ago because nobody in my family likes dark meat. Mom made a ton of stuffing, OK it was a huge roaster pan full, but we have lots for leftovers. My family lives for the leftovers. Everyone took something home.

I used a recipe someone posted in a link, cooked the turkey at a high heat (425 i think) for 30 min upside down then turned it over and cooked it at 325 and took it out at 165 and let it set for 30 min while i cooked the gravy, and finished everything else, it was perfect and very juicy. The only problem was turning it over some of the skin peeled off and i had to put a little foil on top but it was still the best bird i ever cooked. I cooked it in a open pan and the turkey was stuffed. i think next time i will try to take it out at 170 and see if it's still moist as 165, out turkey was large.
