    Main Dish

You’ll Need...

Heavy Duty Foil


  • For the Cornmeal Coating

  • For the Dressing (quantities may vary depending on the size of turkey and serving platter)


PREHEAT the oven to 325°F. Mix all ingredients for cornmeal coating.

TEAR off a sheet of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil 2-1/2 times longer than the turkey. Place in a roasting pan that is at least 2 inches deep.

REMOVE neck and giblets from turkey, rinse and pat the turkey dry. Place the turkey lengthwise in the center of the foil sheet to cook. If desired, loosely stuff the turkey.

BRUSH the turkey with oil, then cover with cornmeal coating.

CLOSE foil loosely by overlapping the ends. Turn up short sides of foil to hold in juices, but do not seal airtight. Insert a meat thermometer through the foil into the thickest part of the inner thigh, not touching the bone.

ROAST the turkey until the meat thermometer reads 165°F, about 3-1/2 to 4 hours for a 14 pound unstuffed turkey. Remove from the oven and let stand for 15 minutes. Remove and discard foil.

TRANSFER turkey to a serving dish. Fill the cavity with popcorn. Dress the plate with corn husks and top with corn on the cob. Serve the turkey alongside other corn-themed sides, such as corn cereal, cornbread and creamed corn.
