I think the reason so many people are intimidated by cooking a turkey is that it happens once or twice per year for most families. We may enjoy turkey meat in other seasons under the guise of meatloaf or hamburgers, but cooking the entire bird takes turkey skills to a new level. It's not really that hard to do, but you do need to spend a few minutes thinking about your cooking plan, preferably days before you even begin. For one thing, it's easier to cook a thawed turkey, although it's possible to cook a frozen turkey. But do you really want to start preparing your dinner at 2:00a.m.? I didn't think so. Therefore, review these Thanksgiving Turkey Tips and Recipes this weekend and you will be able to face the bird with less stress and more sleep on the big day.
