Thanksgiving Recipe

Let's try this on Thanksgiving....


I thought this sounded good! Here is a turkey recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing ingredient -- imagine that! When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell when turkey is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try...

8 - 15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is Good)
1 cup unpopped popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER'S LOW FAT IS BEST)
Salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan making sure the neck end is toward the back of the oven. After about 4 hours listen for the popping sounds. When the turkey's ass blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the room, it's done!

And, you thought I didn't cook...

I tried this one out last year and it made a huge mess that I'd rather not clean up. It's so much easier to just buy like 20 of the little banquet turkey dinners and serve those. :)
