Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Serving Suggestion
Balance this special-occasion entrée with smart side dishes. For example, choose a mixed green salad and your favorite hot cooked vegetable.
Tip 2
Keeping it Safe
Do not stuff turkey until ready to roast.
Tip 3
How Much Turkey to Buy:
Plan on purchasing 1 pound of turkey for each guest. Each pound of turkey will yield about 1/2 pound (8 oz.) cooked turkey. (The daily recommended protein intake for Americans older than 9 years of age is 5 to 6 oz., but it's always nice to plan for some leftovers!)
Tip 4
Substitute
Substitute butter for the sausage drippings.
Tip 5
Substitute
Prepare using STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken or Cornbread Stuffing Mix.
Tip 6
Special Extra
For a crispier skin, brush turkey with oil before roasting.
