Remove the Guts?!
As a single guy with family far away and family local that have their own plans this will be my first year baking a young turkey for Thanksgiving.
If it wasn’t for my Mom, bless her heart, I would’ve tried to bake this sucker on a cookie sheet lol. No, seriously, that was my plan. I thought I was all set. Mom quickly said “Nah babe, that ain’t gone work. You need a rotisserie pan.” So, we figured I can go to the dollar store and get 3 of those tin pans. Gotta double the bottom and use the third to cover the top.
Special thanks to World Changers Church for giving me and the whole neighborhood not only a free turkey, but also stuffing, egg noodles, great northern beans and can goods to go with it. Much appreciated!
So, when I heard I gotta remove the guts my first thought was that sounds nasty! My Mom straightened me out about that. But, I do want to get a pair of gloves AT LEAST, sheesh, lol.
So this is how we decided to tackle this thing: get the tin pans to bake it in, thaw it out a full day in advance, get some gloves, remove the guts, season the turkey with salt and pepper then put some butter on it, boil the guts and pour the broth on the turkey every hour to base it, bake at about 350 degrees for close to 8 hours after I put the stuffing inside, which I’ll be using my Dad’s famous graham crackers recipe. And that’s it. Just check on it periodically and in the mean time cook the other sides- basically some “heat ’em and eat ’em” stuff as my Mom says lol!
So, wish me luck baking my first turkey for Thanksgiving 2017.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at LightMusick.com! Enjoy and be thankful for what you have and what you have had.
