Thanksgiving Turkey

Thanksgiving Turkey

It’s time to start thawing your frozen turkey if you  haven’t already. It can take a few days to thaw to the center when thawing in the refrigerator.

I’ve tried different methods of roasting  turkey over the years. My Grandma, in later years, discovered the plastic roasting bag, and once she did, she swore by it, and said the bag really helped make the moistest turkey ever.  So, for a while I did the same thing, slow-roasting it through the night at very low temperature until done the next  morning.

I don’t feel so comfortable  cooking  in plastic anymore, and this year, I’m changing it up even more and not  only using a covered roasting pan, but I’m not putting  my turkey on until early morning.  I’m thinking I don’t want to baste in the wee hours this year like I’ve done in the  past.

Here’s my simple recipe for roasting a Thanksgiving  turkey.

  1. I’ve never had to cook a turkey……yet. My mom still does that, and exactly the way your Grandma did. 🙂
