This was my first time making the turkey for Thanksgiving, and my entire family was impressed. I did follow the directions on the ovenbag box to add flour to the bag before placing the turkey and also cutting a few slits on the top before baking. I used the entire bottle of champagne, at the time I thought it was too much, but it was just right - had plenty of drippings to make the gravy. I did add a bouillon cube to the gravy to counter some of the sweetness from the champagne. Also following some suggestions from other reviews I added a cut up red onion to the inside and an extra apple (mine was a 20lb turkey). After about 2 hours in the oven I cut up the top of the bag so the skin would get nice and crispy. It took about 3 hours to cook and after letting it rest for about 30 minutes the meat was falling off the bones. I'll definitely be making this again for Christmas.
