    Roasting turkey

    Perfect for people who are never sure how to tell when poultry is cooked
    thoroughly but not dried out. Give this a try.

    BAKED STUFFED TURKEY
    6-7 lb. turkey
    1 cup melted butter
    1 cup stuffing
    1 cup uncooked popcorn
    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 popping sounds. When the turkey's insides blow the oven door open and the turkey flies across the room, it's done.

    Re: Roasting turkey

    Geoff, this recipe is in fact quite misleading. I found, after trying to get all those flakes off the wall, that it's not baked stuffed turkey, rather it is flaked stuffed turkey. If it was really baked, it would have baking soda in it, wouldn't it now ? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
    Cheers, Claude.

    Re: Roasting turkey

    Claude,

    Hey, you did not try hard enough!

    .You posted 20 minutes after my post. That was not even enough to defrost the turkey
    .If you are rich enough to afford a turkey to cook in this way in Australia, then you don't need to work for a living. (I can't understand why turkey is so cheap in England and US, but so expensive here- 3 to 4 times per kilo the price of chicken)
    .Baking soda- well, I'll respect your wanswer more when you have experimeted more <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    I will now be extremely careful when I see "corn fed" on the label, as I fear that the house animal would be far more adept than I at catching the airborne turkey.
    Although on hindsight perhaps we have a new entertainment genre emerging, come for dinner <img src=/S/cooked.gif border=0 alt=cooked width=50 height=46> and eat all you can catch.

    Considering the flight time and distance from the US or England that poor bird is exhausted & has to make many stops for food & rest. Hotel & food add up thus an increase in market price.

    Really?? Geeze... every Thanksgiving the supermarket gives them out for <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> if you spend over $100 on "the fixins" and other stuff.

    Would you mind sharing the name of the supermarket that you use. The only FREE thing I get from mine is a parking space while I spend my money.

    Re: Roasting turkey

    On top of all that, the turkey is jet lagged.

    See original thread for a way of putting life into the bird.

    Re: Roasting turkey

    Really? I use Pathmark, but I remember Food Town and ShopRite used to do it when I was a kid... and I thought IGA used to do it too... You have to sign up for that free little Pathmark card (or Food Saver Plus card, or ShopRite card... or what ever the store calls it's frequent shopper card) and you get to pick up the frozen bird at checkout. This is only a special at Thanksgiving time though as far as I know.
    have fun

    Here in Arizona - all of the supermarket chains (Safeway, Bashas, Frys and Albertsons) do the same thing - spend enough money on other things - NO Dairy or Alcohol - and they give them away!

    Re: Roasting turkey

    6-7 pound Turkey???????

    That's not even a good size Chicken! Don't bake it, fry it!

    The real recipe:

    BAKED STUFFED TURKEY
    20-25 lb. turkey
    5 cups melted butter
    5 cups stuffing
    5 cups uncooked popcorn
    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 popping sounds. When the turkey's insides blow the oven door open and the turkey flies across the room, it's done

    Re: Roasting turkey

    With the price of turkey down here, no way. I'll stick to the little ones.

    Glad you cleaned up the punch line as well <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Turkey here is about the least expensive meat you can buy, and it is difficult to find one under 10 pounds.

    Re: Roasting turkey

    On the turkey thread, does anyone know why we don't eat turkey eggs? <img src=/S/humpty.gif border=0 alt=humpty width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/question.gif border=0 alt=question width=15 height=15>

    Re: Roasting turkey

    Um, because they don't fit into the frying pan? Becasue they don't fit into an egg carton?

    (They're probably used for some of thise powdered egg things I guess- at least in US & Euope where turkeys are cheap)
