The Juiciest Thanksgiving Turkey You'll Ever Eat is Made in a Stasher Bag

Maybe you’re going for a smaller, low-key Thanksgiving this year, or maybe you just don’t really want to eat turkey leftovers for three weeks. Either way, I have the perfect recipe for you! Enter turkey tenderloins.

Making turkey tenderloins for Thanksgiving instead of a whole bird is a pretty attractive option because it’s so much faster, there’s very minimal clean up, and it’s especially ideal for people who don’t want to make a lot of food - maybe just enough for two to four people.

That being said, after making this recipe, I think I might be making turkey tenderloins for the rest of my life no matter how many people I serve. It was that good. 

I cooked this herbed turkey tenderloin in a Half Gallon Stasher bag. Did you know that Stashers can go right in the oven up to 400 degrees?! Grab your own and get ready for the juiciest (seriously), most delicious, perfectly simple turkey on your hands - fit for even the pickiest of dinner guests.

I love cooking meat and fish in Stasher bags (hello, sous vide!) because it stays so incredibly moist, and all of the juices stay right inside the bag, infusing lots of flavor.

Make it: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Place turkey tenderloins in the Half Gallon Stasher bag, followed by the olive oil, salt, garlic, and herbs. Seal the top tightly and lightly massage the turkey tenderloins so that they are evenly coated in the mixture.

  4. Devour with gusto.
