Roasted Turkey – Karen’s Favorite

For Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter this roasted turkey is by far the best turkey I’ve EVER eaten. Yes, there are a few extra steps but it’s so worth the trouble. It can be cooked, deboned, sliced, and frozen before the big day. Now, how’s that for those of us who have NoTime2Cook.  That’s me when entertaining 10+ people at our little cabin in the woods on Thanksgiving day. Besides, the cabin kitchen is so small, my sister and I learned years ago to cook ahead and freeze what we can. This turkey froze beautifully and tasted like it had just come out of the oven that morning.

My sister, Kay, brought the ham. (It was perfect! She bought a Cook’s precooked spiral sliced ham that she deboned, separated the slices, and brought them ready for heating. We don’t care for the glaze.) I brought the roasted turkey–sliced and thawed. We stacked all the meat in an aluminum pan with a lid and heated in a 350 oven for about an hour.  We could have also arranged the meat on a platter and heated in the microwave.  I also took my “family favorite” potatoes frozen and Mama’s dressing–sorry, cant share that recipe as it’s the one you’ll find in Kroger or can purchase on our online store. Even the Pumpkin Pie and Pecan Pie were cooked ahead and frozen.

Our before-hand prep, a beautiful table, hungry folks, and our young people cleaning up the kitchen made for a most relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving day. Now on to Christmas!!
