Most of us love the idea of filling our homes with loved ones and laying out a gourmet feast to celebrate the holidays. Or perhaps you find the thought of cooking for family to be stressful – especially if you’ve never roasted a turkey – typically, the centerpiece of the meal. Will your family remember your holiday meal as fun and delicious? Or will they joke about your holiday meal for years and years making fun of your dry turkey meat with even drier stuffing?
The following infographic is a visual guide for the rookie turkey roaster and covers portioning, defrosting, prepping, and roasting. This guide doesn’t show you how to carve the bird, but the New York Times offers a video demonstration that will show you how to effectively carve a turkey. Quick tip: Don’t have Dad carve it at the dinner table for your Rockefellar-style photos, but rather carve it separately in the kitchen on a cutting board, place it on a platter, and bring the whole platter to the table.
But we digress…In order to have a turkey that’s moist and tender and has crispy, brown skin, follow these step-by-step instructions.
