Cooking Thanksgiving dinner is a wonderful way to show your family how much you love them this holiday season. However, cooking Thanksgiving dinner can be quite an undertaking, so you will want to read these tips from DealDash. Also, we are here to help!
Be Sure the Turkey is Fully Defrosted
Make certain the turkey is totally defrosted. Depending on the weight of your turkey you might have to keep it in the fridge for a few days. Safe storage space for your bird is important, too. Also, dealing with the bird and cooking techniques will vary as well as approximate cooking times for poultry.
Turkey Preparation Temperatures and Tips
Food preparation time might differ depending upon temperature level of the oven. When preparing turkey, make use of the instructions on turkey food preparation times that are typically included on the turkey packaging. Also, you won’t want your meat drying, so be sure to baste it every half hour throughout food preparation. Then, be sure to cover your turkey with aluminum foil throughout food preparation. Finally, uncover during the last thirty minutes to brown the skin and crisp it up.
Delicious Stuffing Recipe
If you’re making turkey, you will definitely want stuffing to go along with it. Here is a simple and delicious recipe for you to try. Many people like to cook the stuffing inside the turkey, but that can alter your cooking times. It’s better to cook it separately, that way everything will turn out just right!
- 13 cups dry bread cubes – Make your own or buy prepared in a bag
- 1cup chopped celery
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 1/2 cups butter
- 2 1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 tablespoons poultry seasoning
- 1 1/2 cups chicken stock (try vegetable stock if vegetarians will be eating the stuffing)
- 2 large eggs
In a pan, saute the onion and celery in butter for 10 minutes or until the onion and celery are tender.
Place the bread cubes in a large bowl. Pour the butter, onion and celery mixture over the breadcrumbs and mix. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Put the stuffing in the prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
