There’s this new turkey recipe in Safeway grocery stores now where you can cook any size turkey up to 22 pounds in just two hours! This will for sure save A LOT of time on Thanksgiving!! If you go to the Safeway site you can find a store close to you. The recipe’s only available in the store. Has anyone tried it?

I have never heard of the 2 hour turkey, but I have heard of the 1 hour turkey and it is very moist. You must have a gas stove to do this recipe, and your turkey can be any size. Also you must have a roasting pan with roasting cover. Preheat your oven at temp of 450 degrees.
Get your turkey prepared and seasoned and rubbed down the way you want. (Do not stuff the turkey, this recipe does not call for stuffing placed in the turkey) Place 1 quart of warm water in the bottom of the pan, with 4 celery stalks and a peeled onion stuck in the cavity of the turkey. Place the lid on the roaster and placed in the preheated oven for 1hr and 15min. Turn off your oven and do not open until the next morning. (AGAIN DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN UNTIL THE NEXT MORNING) I usually place my turkey in the oven at 9:00p and when I get up at 5:00a it is fully cooked ready to eat with a golden brown top. It is the best turkey that you will ever have with alot of turkey broth in which to make your gravy.

Hi, knt. Thanks for the advice. I think my oven really needs cleaning, too. :)

hi, i have done the 2 hour turkey and it is awesome!
the only suggestion i have is make sure that your oven is clean as the high temperature will cause some smoking!
the turkey was moist, full of flavor, and the family loved it!
those of us who eat the skin were fighting over it, it was that good!
i will certainly be baking turkey more often with this quick and easy method!
give it a try folks you'll love it!
Enjoy and have a great day!
knt

that makes sense! You can always make stuffing in a separate dish and use low fat/sodium chicken broth or veg broth for more flavor.

I have a retro recipe blog called Jam Handy! [url]http://www.jamhandyblog.blogspot.com[/url]

You can find more information about the 2-Hour Turkey there as well as the recipe. There are a lot of specific things you have to do for it to work properly. One of them is do not stuff the turkey. FYI.

Did you go get the recipe? Could you share? Where I live, we have NONE of those stores. Thanks in advance.

Hello! I think that may be a different recipe. Sounds good though! Looks like you have to go in the Safeway stores to get it this 2 hour one. Tom Thumb, Vons, Dominick's and Pavilions are all Safeway stores that should have it too.

Hi Sierra!

I'm not sure if this is the exact recipe, but I got it from www.safeway.com

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 16- to 18-pound turkey
3 whole bay leaves
