I am hosting Christmas Dinner. I was thinking of going to Publix or Target and purchasing one of their turkey dinners . Supposedly, the turkey (12-16 pounders) is cooked and you just have to warm it up. Also comes with the usual sides and an apple pie.
I can always make the rice stuffing on the side.
Anyone ever try this??
That says something about how good those dinners are or about how bad her cooking is normally. :D
(sufficient for a 6-pound bird)
3 cups soft bread crumbs
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
2 onions chopped finely
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
1 cup popping corn
And when its done:
* Skin will be a golden brown colour
* Temperature button (thermometer) will have popped
* Backside of the bird will have been blown open
* Skewers will be protruding from the wall opposite the oven
* Oven door will be lying on the kitchen floor
I've never had a deep fried turkey but it's my understanding that the #1 cause for fires associated with frying a turkey is because people are stupid enough to put a frozen turkey into hot oil. I heard that you must completely thaw the turkey before submerging it into the oil.
I don't have the guts to attempt a deep fried turkey, I am too accident prone.
