Talking Turkey Part 1

Thanksgiving is almost here and for some, cooking a turkey is a daunting task.  But in fact, it’s really one of the easiest holiday meal entrees. First, take a look at your oven and make sure it’s big enough for a whole turkey.  If it’s a small oven , you might consider cooking a whole turkey breast instead of the whole turkey.  If your oven is regular size, choose the turkey size according to the number of guest eating. The basic rule of thumb is 1-1 1/2 pounds per person. I usually go a little more since I like to have leftovers.  Survey the roasting pans for the correct size.  Now all you need is the turkey, small herbs and veggies.  Here’s a video from Chef John at Food Wishes that makes cooking a turkey pretty simple.

So, let’s get cooking.  Check out WWMS recipes for more holiday ideas and tips.
