Popcorn Turkey

This Thanksgiving Day will be like no other in the history of Wisconsin.  With the need to collect more than 540,000 signatures in 60 days, people won't really have the time to putz around in the kitchen for an entire day making their Thanksgiving dinner.

In light of that, as a public service announcement, I repeat this recipe for a quick and easy dinner.  As I had originally posted it four years ago, even before I had my own blog, at folkbum's:
An oldie, but a goodie...

Here is a Thanksgiving Turkey recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing - imagine that.

When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try.


10-12 lb. Turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good.)
5 cups 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 flies across the room, it's done.

Imagine the look on your loved ones' faces as you show off your culinary skills.
