Thanksgiving Day Tips November 22, 2006

Posted by DMTigerfly in Uncategorized.

To properly thaw your frozen bird place it in a clean sink of cold water and change the water every 30 minutes.  This keeps bad bacteria from growing on it.

Cover the turkey breast with tin foil if it is cooking faster than the legs and is over browning.

-To crisp up the top of your stuffing place it under the broiler for a minute or two.  For stuffing that’s been baked inside the bird place it in a oiled baking dish at 450 degrees for 10 minutes or so.  Then broil it for a minute or two to crisp the top.

Burned gravy can be saved by adding a tablespoon of creamy peanut butter.  It will soften the smoky taste.

Over salted your gravy?  Add a peeled, cut up potato to the gravy and cook for about 5-10 minutes then remove potatoes.  They will absorb the salt.

-For dried dinner rolls, wrap them loosely in aluminum foil and heat in 300 degree oven for 15 minutes.  During the last 4-5 minutes unwrap the rolls slightly to crisp lightly.

-Save your disposable pie tins and cut out the bottoms.  You can then use them by turning them upside down and placing it on top of your pie to keep the crust from burning.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
