What if the turkey got burned…

What if the turkey got burned? …..or worse yet, it wasn’t cooked at meal time!

The turkey, 12 years ago, only cooked 4 hours instead of at least 8 for 20 lbs. I had to catch a Greyhound at 5:00 and it was 2:00. We microwaved the outer layers of the huge bird and the potatoes and vegetables completed our meal. Gravy was not made as the broth was not cooked to a well heated consistency. And stuffing encountered the same scenario. But you know what?

We had time to play with the kittens and laugh, play with the kids and plenty of hugs before my 2 hour Greyhound bus ride back home. I was so happy to see my daughter and share these moments with her that day. So thankful for my daughter.  Love You Deb Debs 🙂

Best Thanksgiving Turkey

What’s in your oven on Thanksgiving morning?

Everyone has their way of cooking their own turkey and my mom always did hers in the oven the morning of Thanksgiving really early. When I moved out and started cooking my Thanksgiving Turkey, I did the same thing and still kind of do. However, I’ve changed the seasonings a little, but I do still get up early and put the turkey on.  I have a counter top cooker that I use to cook my turkey and it’s the best thing ever because it frees up my stove and oven to cook all the other goodies.

Anyways, I take my turkey and rinse it off really good. Then I inject it with Tony Chachere’s Trukey injections and then I rub butter all over the outside and inside. Once I’m done with that I sprinkle turkey with the following: Powder garlic, salt, pepper, & lightly sprinkle with Tony Chachere’s.

I’m telling you what, when it’s done and you cut it open, the juice just runs out.  It’s so juicy and so YUMMY!! Give it a try I promise your family will love it!

Let me know if you need more directions with my recipe!

Happy November! #IamThankful
