Turkey for Bacon Lovers[su_right_ad]The good folks at The Blog Basket have found five guaranteed recipe turkeys (although The Doc freely admits he’d love to see the dee-luscious bacon-wrapped turkey seen here).

And those health-minded writers over at provide a list of the five worst turkey ingredients. It’s sensible advice, but The Doc isn’t going to do without the butter.

We add to the list this hilarious, if completely faux, recipe for “popcorn turkey,” courtesy of a Facebook friend who will maintain anonymity:

10-12 lb. Turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good.)
5 cups uncooked popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER ‘S LOW FAT)
Salt/pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brush Turkey well with melted butter, salt, and pepper.
Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven.
Listen for the popping sounds.
When the turkey’s butt blows the oven door open and flies across the room, it’s done.

As the French say, gone appétit![su_center_ad]

    I have a good way of using up every scrap of the turkey leftovers. After you have eaten the traditional day-after turkey sandwiches, separate the meat of the turkey from the bone and cartilage. break up the big chunks of meat so it is shredded, and split it up into smaller portions in zip close bags, and freeze them. Months later, take out a bag of shredded turkey meat, heat it up, mix it up with hot turkey gravy and serve it on a hamburger bun. It makes a sort of a turkey Sloppy Joe sandwich. They are delicious and nothing at all goes to waste.

      That way you don’t get sick of turkey, and it stays fresh. I do that all the time since I’m cooking for one–make a full size batch and then freeze some immediately.

          I did a venison roast on the barbeque that way …It wasn’t dry for a change

    My favorite was this woman’s how-to tutorial. Bottom line–put the effing turkey in the oven!
