Ready for Turkey Day?

Turkey remains the hands down holiday tradition for Thanksgiving Day.  Did you know that Ben Franklin thought the turkey should be our national symbol?  Cooking a turkey can be tricky.  You want the bird thoroughly cooked for safety’s sake, but not dried out.  Here’s a recipe I discovered last year about this time, and it’s fool proof.

Delicious Turkey Recipe

8-15 pound turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn (Orville Redenbacker’s Low Fat)
salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and uncooked popcorn.

Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven.

Listen for the popping sounds. When the turkey’s butt blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the room, it’s done.

And you thought I didn’t cook.
