Default Turkey in Toaster

Some insights were learned!

1. The toaster was not quite tall enough for the turkey, resulting in the very top of the turkey being delicately seasoned with caramelized oven bag

2. Toaster does not seem to cook with as much verve as a real oven as it took about an hour more than planned for the turkey to cook

3. The wise man should cook the turkey with the pop out timer facing the door

4. Cheap disposable cake pans do not adequately handle the awesomeness that is turkey

5. Silicone turkey painting brushes are like a koosh ball on a stick

6. There is a reason people tend not to consider a turkey a quick midnight snack. 11 PM is not the time to cook a turkey

7. Turkeys are not small and produce leftovers, it is invigorating to try to store them after 24hrs without

8. With a bit of creativity, a turkey can fit in a 2 gallon ziploc

Yeah, the heating elements are too close to use anything plastic in the toaster oven.

Never trust the dial of a toaster oven. Pick up an actual oven thermometer. I had a 50-60 degree difference in mine, (prior to replacing it).

Nope. I picked up a roasting pan that fit in mine for just that reason.

I'm surprised you were able to find a whole turkey that would fit into the toaster oven. I'm assuming that to get it into the ziplock you had to fully carve it?

The turkey was a small 15lber, and the toaster a large example of toaster kind . . . so it . . . almost fit

I will try to upload a picture showing the turkey in the toaster

Nope, turkey fit perfectly well in the 2gallon ziploc whole

However, the process of wrestling the turkey into said ziploc made a horrific greasy mess of all involved, so we put it in a Goodwill sack after

A wise man can also remove the turkey and turn it around if he makes this mistake.

It can be corrected.

Is there a story beyond this?

Did the pan melt?

And neither is it wise to begin the holiday turkey 2 hours before it is supposed to be served, as someone in my family learned.

I almost vomited when he cut into it, prepping to take to the table.

"Is that cooked?" I asked, and when he pulled out a slice, half of it was raw.

The pan did not melt, but lost its moral resolve to hold onto anything resembling pan form and the turkey almost managed to roll off the pan and fly

This sounds like an epic adventure, Kal.

Turkeys can also be cooked successfully in a microwave with a turntable, and it's faster than a regular oven. You do have to use an extra browning agent like soy sauce, though. Start with breast down, then flip it over half-way. A small piece of foil will help keep the breast from over-cooking without blowing up the microwave (usually).
