How to Cook a Turkey
November 23, 2015

I know this recipe says for beginners and first-time turkey makers, but I have been cooking the Thanksgiving meal for my family for over 20 years, and this is still my favorite way to cook a turkey. There are fancier methods out there, but I think turkey is one of those foods that is so delicious all by itself that it doesn't really need all those bells and whistles. This easy recipe gives you a delicious, juicy, beautiful turkey every single time. Thanks Chef John for another winner!!
