Weird Ramblings from a Warped Mind

Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe

After the popularity and success of my Vodka Thanksgiving Cake recipe earlier this week, I recalled my favorite Thanksgiving Turkey recipe, so here it is. And it uses popcorn as a stuffing… imagine that.

When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who are just not sure how to tell when poultry 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 uncooked popcorn (Orville Redenbacher’s Low Fat)

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter. Salt, and pepper to taste. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn(uncooked).Place in baking pan with neck end towards the back of oven. Listen for the popping sounds. When the turkey’s ass blows the oven door open and flies across the room, it’s done.

I know… I know… you had NO idea I was such a whiz in the kitchen.

And that’s MY take!
