The World's Fastest Turkey Recipe

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

We've got a quick recipe for moms who hate to cook even more than turkeys hate getting cooked.


Here are some fast and easy things you can do to ensure a great meal.

1. Spice up your bird: Grind up your favorite herbs (sage, rosemary, parsley, etc.) and mix them with one stick of room-temperature butter. Then rub the herb butter all over the turkey (make sure to rub some under the skin). Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

2. Cook your bird according to its weight: The average turkey weighs 14 to 18 lbs. and should be cooked about four hours. To check if it's done, first wiggle the leg; it should move fairly freely and not be stiff. Then cut about 1" deep into the bird between its leg and thigh, and if the juices run clear, you're all set.

3. Remove the bird from the oven, cover it with foil and let it rest for 15 minutes. Letting it rest not only allows it to cook a little longer, but during this time, the turkey absorbs all the juices it lost during the cooking process. Resting = a moist bird.

4. Be safe. Instances of choking are prevalent on any massive-consumption holiday, and you can never be too careful. Check out some safety tips and how to do the Heimlich Maneuver on
