Simple Turkey and Stuffing

Alrighty folks…

As my wife deemed it yesterday, “Thanksgiving in February.” I decided to make a quick turkey and stuffing dinner yesterday. It was the last grasps of a “winter” dinner and it was delicious. I hope you enjoy.

Here we go.


For the turkey:

4 – 5 lb turkey breast

1/4 cup olive oil

1 Tbs Italian Garlic seasoning

1 Tbs Rustic Herb seasoning

1/4 cup flour

1 roasting bag

For the stuffing:

5 Tbs butter

2 cups of chicken broth

2 celery stalks, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 bag Pepperidge Farms stuffing mix


Preheat your oven to 325.

Let’s start with the turkey.


Prep your roasting bag by placing it in your baking dish and putting in a 1/4 cup of flour. It ensures the bag won’t burst while in the oven.


Now, mix 1 Tbs of Tastefully Simple’s Italian Garlic seasoning and 1/4 cup of olive oil.


Brush it on your turkey breast.


Next, sprinkle on the Tastefully Simple Rustic Herb.


Looks like a giant fish head, doesn’t it. Lol.

Put your bird in the bag and tie off. You will want to cut 5 – 6 slits in the bag. Place it in the oven for 1.5 – 2 hours. Cook until the temp is at 170.

While that is cooking, prepare your stuffing.

Melt the butter in a pot and add your onion and celery.


Cook the celery and onion for 5 – 6 minutes at medium heat.

Now, I use bagged stuffing mix. So, this recipe is semi-homeade. I like it like that. It’s a time saver.


Add your broth and bring to a boil then remove from heat.


Add your stuffing, mix, cover and let set for 5 minutes.


Once you are done, you will have this…



Looks good doesn’t it?

And your turkey chunked up…


I’m gonna tell you that the roasting bag delivers such a moist turkey that I won’t make it any way else unless, of course, I throw it in a crock pot. 🙂

I hope you try this delicious dinner!
