How to Cook a Turkey

cook a turkey

I was scared to cook a turkey. It always looked so hard.  I always remembered people looking like they have run a race after cooking this beast. One year, I jumped in and decided I would figure it out. I hope my post how you cook a turkey will help even the newest cook roast a delicious turkey.

Ingredients:

Turkey

Chicken Broth

1 stick of Butter

Salt and Pepper

Olive oil

Herbs (You can use rosemary) I cheat and use Herbes De Provence (it sounds fancy and tastes great)

Roasting pan

foil

This is how you cook a turkey.

1) If your turkey is frozen, you will need to thaw it in the refrigerator DAYS before Thanksgiving. If you have screwed up and didn’t do this, you can put it in cold water to thaw.  Make sure you keep changing the water until it is thawed. I hope you didn’t have plans as this will take a while.

2) You will actually need to wash the turkey.  Just use water.  Do NOT use soap.

3) Pat the turkey dry with paper towels. I can imagine my husband grabbing a dish towel so I am being specific.
