: So, I'm curious. How did Trisha Yearwood cook the turkey?
: I watched her do it on her cooking show, and it looked good, and she said
: it always turns out wonderful and leaves the oven free for other stuff.
: Dunno, so will try it. I'm not really such a huge fan of Turkey other
: than sandwiches which I really don't eat much anymore, so if it turns out
: to be not as good as it could be, it will be turned into dog food. :-)
: 7 hr 10 min.
: Prep10 min.
: Cook7 hr 0 min.
: Yield:10 to 12 servings .
: Ingredients
: 1/2 stick salted butter, softened
: One 12-pound turkey, completely thawed and all giblets removed
: 2 tablespoons salt
: 2 teaspoons pepper
: 2 stalks celery, cut in lengths to fit turkey cavity .
: 1 medium sweet onion, such as Vidalia, cut in half
: 1 large carrot, cut in lengths to fit the turkey cavity
: 2 cups boiling water
: Directions:
: Adjust the oven racks so the covered roasting pan fit easily inside.
: Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
: Rub the butter on the outside and in the cavity of the turkey. Sprinkle
: the salt and pepper on the inside and the outside of the turkey. Put the
: celery, onion and carrot in the cavity. Place the turkey, breast-side up,
: in a large roasting pan. Pour the boiling water into the pan. Cover with
: a tight-fitting lid and put the pan in the oven.
: Start a timer when the oven temperature returns to 500 degrees F.
: Bake for exactly 1 hour and turn off the oven.
: Do not open the oven door!
: Leave the turkey in the oven until the oven completely cools; this may
: take 4 to 6 hours.
: Reserve the pan juices and refrigerate the turkey if it will not be
: served soon after roasting.
: Did the turkey brown in that steam?

: It looked like it did, not really crisp looking though, but she was more
: focused on the dressing her mom used to make and didn't take the bird out of
: the pan. I got a fresh 12 pound turkey today and am going to try it
: tomorrow. DH loves any kind of turkey, so I told him we'll have your
: Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow, and mine next week. If the turkey turns out
: bad, can always be made into dog food, mixed with veggies and frozen. :-) On
: a side note, I have one of those old Lisk roasters that self bastes, so
: really am unsure how it will turn out. Will report back.

You can alwys use parts for making soup or stock that you can freeze for
later. there are also lots of dishes to make that you cna use cooked
turkey fo like cooked chicken recipes, from chic(turkey) salad to thisng
with tomato sauce or ccream sauce kind of thins with interesting
seasonings like curry or whatever you like. You really dna make nice
people food form steamed turkey or chicken:-)
