As those of us in the USA prepare for Thankgiving Day, remember that there is nothing worse than an undercooked turkey as the center piece of your dinner table. I have done extensive research on the internet to bring you this tip for cooking a perfect bird!

Okay, I actually stole this from Nick's Bytes. I even stole the same cartoon from exploratorium.edu!



A sure fire way to tell when your Thanksgiving turkey is thoroughly cooked! Add popcorn to the stuffing!

8 - 15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good)
1 cup 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 ass blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the room, it's done.


Of course, you could just wait for that timer thingie in every ceiling to start shrieking. As the smoke pours out of the oven, you'll know the bird it completely and thoroughly cooked!

More valuable cooking and holiday merry-making tips to come!

You're welcome!

I so dont understand the big fuss that many (note I said many not all) doodles make about cooking a turkey dinner....... most Brits cook a big Sunday roast each and every weekend.... with all the trimmings......

Rolling me eyes......
