I love the ease and convenience of a boneless turkey breast. However, I find that they can be quite dry sometimes. So, I decided to wrap one in bacon to see how it would turn out. The results were fantastic. This was definitely one of the best turkeys that I have ever eaten. It was moist, flavorful and best of all, easy to make! It was so simple that it should almost be illegal. If you are looking for a delicious and easy way to serve Turkey on Thanksgiving or any holiday for that matter, then this is your recipe.
One of my favorite methods of cooking a turkey is on the smoker. I find that the smoke adds some nice little notes that complement the turkey. Traditionally, I use just salt and pepper. However, I wanted to come up with a rub that would give me some mouth watering, super tasty turkey. I think I may have done just that.
One of the top questions i receive during this time of year is…”How long does it take to thaw a Turkey?” This post will attempt to answer all of your questions regarding this tricky topic. I will review the following:
- How to thaw a turkey
- How long it takes to thaw a turkey
- What to do with a frozen turkey on Thanksgiving morning!
I love to smoke a turkey for the holidays. I have discovered that the only way to smoke an amazing turkey is to brine the turkey (and to tell you the truth, I even brine my oven-baked turkeys now). Without brining, the turkey can be dry and tough. However, if you use a standard brine, the turkey is guaranteed to be juicy and tender. This year, I decided to step up my brining process by using a super flavorful broth. The results were downright amazing. I know you will enjoy!
When I was growing up, my Grandma Donna would always make twice baked potatoes for me. They were my favorite. So, I decided that I had better find her recipe and make some for my kids. My version has a little twist, however. It includes your favorite magical meat….BACON!!!! This recipe is simple and super delicious! Though it takes a little longer to make than a simple baked or mashed potato, it is totally worth it your time and effort. This may even be a great recipe to try for your Thanksgiving dinner!!!
Shrimp Fried Rice is one of our favorite dishes when we get take-out. After the success of our Japanese Steakhouse Fried Rice, we decided to tackle our other favorite fried rice recipe. Like our other fried rice recipe, this one uses day old rice and cooks super fast. The fried rice that you get from take-out utilizes smaller sized shrimp, but we used full size shrimp to turn this side dish into an entree! Check out our recipe below.
