If carving a whole turkey is intimidating, cook your bird in pieces. Fans of white meat will adore our easy preparation for juicy turkey breast. For guests who prefer dark meat, braise the turkey legs with pan gravy.
Another way to ensure a juicy, flavorful bird is to brine your turkey. Most recipes call for brining the turkey for 8-12 hours, so make sure to plan ahead. Our basic brine recipe is a mixture of water, salt, sugar, thyme, bay leaves, and peppercorns.
A homemade "crust" gives your turkey crunch and juiciness. Here, we've brushed the turkey with orange marmalade, then coated it with a mixture of spices and hazelnuts before roasting.
Grill your turkey to infuse it with a distinct smoky flavor. For a festive Thanksgiving twist, rub butter, citrus peel, and garlic under the turkey skin before grilling.
Roasting your turkey is the most traditional cooking method; when done correctly the turkey comes out a beautiful golden-brown with juicy meat. This turkey is roasted with onions and garlic inside the cavity.
If you love the ease of grilling outdoors, this cooking method is worth a try. Whether you have a smoker, charcoal grill, or gas grill, we have simple directions for giving your turkey a smoky flavor. In this recipe we show you how to make stuffing on your grill, too.
Massaging butter under the skin of your turkey keeps the meat moist and juicy. Add herbs or spices for extra flavor.
For turkey your guests will fight over, brush your bird with oil, and then rub a homemade spice mixture into the skin. This rub of coriander, paprika, black pepper, and chipotle pepper enhances the flavor of the smoked meat.
If you crave extra crispy turkey, you can't beat deep frying. To avoid splatters, make sure your turkey is patted dry before lowering it into the hot oil. Here, we've rubbed spices under the skin and in the cavity for extra flavor.
