Thanksgiving can be a wonderful relaxing time with your family and friends. It can also be a high stress, what was I thinking hosting a dinner for 30 people, kind of crazy. Myself, I always choose the crazy and after reading this you will believe me!
Over the next week Virtual Potluck is teaming up with OXO to take the stress out of Thanksgiving.
First off we have the Big Kahuna, the turkey. I’ve heard of ladies climbing out of bed in the middle of the night to start the Thanksgiving turkey so that it would be ready and give all of the other dishes time to cook. Do away with that craziness (hey I need all of the sleep I can get) and cook a flat turkey also called spatchcocking.
- 1 7-10 pound turkey, thawed completely (mine was 10 pound Butterball)
- 1/4 cup olive oil (I used Star Garlic Olive Oil)
- 1 tablespoon coarse salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 1 lemon cut in half
- 3 fresh sage leaves
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- 4 garlic cloves
