If you need to roast a turkey or chicken and don't have a roasting pan on hand, you can get the same roasting effect from a bundt cake pan. According to Real Simple magazine, the cone in the centre of the pan will keep the meat from touching the base and provide the same cooking effect.
All you need to do is layer your root vegetables on the bottom of the pan, season your meat, place the meat in the cavity over the centre hole and roast in the oven as you normally would. You'll also want to place a cookie sheet or large piece of aluminium foil underneath to catch the drippings.
