Roasting the Turkey
If you’re in charge of cooking, extra pressure’s on to prepare the centerpiece of the holiday meal: the turkey. How the turkey turns out can make or break your holiday gathering. Everyone’s counting on moist, tender meat; crispy, brown skin; and flavorful, fluffy stuffing.
But if you’ve never roasted a turkey before, where do you start? How big of a bird do you buy? How do you prep and season it? And what on earth do you do with those giblets?
Don’t panic, this guide will help you. It’s got you covered with step-by-step instructions on how to portion, defrost, prep, and roast your turkey. The only thing that’s left is carving up the bird (for which, the New York Times offers a great video demonstration).
Setting the Table
Time to set the table! If you’re hosting Thanksgiving at your home this year, make sure you know how to properly set the table and essential table etiquette to ensure a smooth Thanksgiving meal. Choose from a basic setting, or step it up a notch and be fancy. Add a personal flare by creatively folding napkins in a festive way.
Leftovers? Waste not!
Happy Thanksgiving! 🍠🦃
