Thawing, And Other Turkey Business

So, you want to make a turkey for Fakesgiving (or Thanksgiving, but let’s do the holidays in order, shall we?). But you’re worried about cooking it correctly, and you also want it to taste fabulous. Good for you!

Now scoot your butt over here: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/FactSheets/Lets_Talk_Turkey/index.asp

The USDA has been nice enough to provide these handy dandy little turkey tips, covering just about everything from thawing to roasting to taking care of leftovers.

You’re totally allowed to disregard the portion suggestions. 1 pound of meat per person? Pssht. I got a 13 1/2 pound bird for 8 people, and it is perfect. Leftovers and sandwiches are the best part of turkey-centric holidays!
