Turkey is a staple dish of the holiday season. Almost all families already had their share of turkey dinner on Thanksgiving, but, if you are like my family, you get to enjoy it all over again at Christmas. Check out these tips on how to make your best turkey yet.


If you have a frozen turkey, make sure to take it out of the freezer about five days early to defrost in the refrigerator. If it seems like the turkey takes awhile to defrost, leave it out of the refrigerator for a couple hours to move the process along.


When it comes to the day you are cooking the bird, make sure to take the gizzards out before you do anything else. Whether you are stuffing the turkey or not, you don’t want to cook the bird with them still inside.


To ensure you get the best flavor, lay strips of bacon on the top of the turkey and the put the seasoning on. Put the bird in a turkey bag to keep the juices in place surrounding the turkey. The bag helps the turkey stay moist and filled with flavor.


Once all the prep is done, cook the turkey at 350 degrees. It normally takes about 20 minutes per pound to cook, so make sure you put it in with enough time to spare. When the turkey is finished cooking, let it sit for about 20 minutes for everything to settle.
