Here are some time-saving holiday cooking tips for you this season from Reynolds. Holidays are all about getting the whole family together. Whether the kids are away at college, or spend way too much time studying or at soccer practice, it’s important for parents to take advantage of the few days of quality time. For mom & dad, that means not spending hours in the kitchen fussing with the meal preparations or taking on the task of cleaning up.
Enter smart mom’s secret weapons: oven bags and disposable bakeware. The combo of oven bags and disposable bakeware allow for an effortless, but delicious turkey and side dishes - with quick and easy clean up.
Behold the awesome benefits of oven bags:
· Turkey cooks in less time and is juicier all the way through
· Toss all of your veggies in the same oven bag for a ridiculously easy side dish
· No messy pan to scrub
And with disposable bakeware:
· Dishes are easily served via non-stick surface
· Sturdy frame eliminates juice spillage
· Easy to transport from room to room
· Disposable = no tough grease to scrub, just toss it!

I was sent a great little package of Reynolds products to help me with my Holiday baking. I made a small ham and a small turkey breast roulade for our Thanksmas/day off dinner (so busy working wasn't able to cook Thanksgiving and maybe Christmas either). I went along the lines of the roulade I made some years ago but just cooked it in the baking bags per their instructions. For the ham I simply placed it in a turkey size bag along with some cloves and baked it for the time allowed (note: it says to add flour to bag so I used my gluten free blend). Easy! I love that the bakeware pan fits on my oven rack along with the turkey baking sheet.
Stuffed Turkey Breast Roulade
Brine for turkey breast:
1/3 cup salt
6 cups water
2 Tbl sugar
Combine all in large container (I use my slow cooker dish), stir to dissolve, add turkey breast, soak for at least 1 hour. Remove turkey and prepare as directed.
1 (2 1/2-3 pound) skinless boneless turkey breast, butterflied
about 1 cup cooked stuffing
Place turkey breast in brine for 1 hour. Remove, pat dry. Place the butterflied turkey breast between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound lightly with a meat mallet or heavy duty sauce pan or heavy rolling pin to an even thickness of about 3/4-inch. Salt and pepper the inside and outside of the turkey breast. Spread the stuffing on the turkey, leaving about 1 1/2 to 2-inches uncovered on all sides. Roll up and secure tightly with kitchen twine (about 1 1/2" apart), trying to keep all stuffing intact.
Heat 1 tablespoon of canola oil in a large Dutch oven or medium-sized skillet until hot. Sear stuffed turkey breast on all sides until lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Place in prepared large Reynolds Baking Bag. Bake per instructions on sheet.
My Stuffed Turkey Breast Roulade with Homemade Cranberry Sauce.
Our Thanksmas dinner was delicious and this plate is all gluten free!
The sides were gluten free homemade stuffing (I used UDI'S bagels), sauteed garlicky fresh green beans and yams with marshmallows, they also had rolls with theirs.
