7 Ways to Cook a Turkey

There are plenty of ways to turn your Thanksgiving turkey into dinner. Thankfully it is no longer “required” of us to spend hours roasting your chicken and keeping an eye on it while you are baking desserts and putting together side dishes. Whether you are a skilled cook or are still new to this whole cooking thing, we have recipes to cover all cooking levels. This year you can try wrapping your turkey in bacon because, let’s be honest, who does not love bacon? For a bit more elegant taste, try the balsamic-glazed roast turkey with pan sauce or the roasted and smoked turkey. If you are trying to cook for a crowd, maybe it would be easiest to roast turkey legs. Or, for a more classic, comforting turkey, try the beer-can turkey, the simple, “best” turkey, or the cider-glazed turkey with lager gravy. So, choose whatever turkey you like best and you will surely have a memorable Thanksgiving dinner.


Rubbed, stuffed, fried, and roasted — there are plenty of ways to turn turkey into dinner.

When it comes to cooking your Thanksgiving turkey there are so many options. Gone are the days when it was either roast the bird or go out for dinner. Over the years, talented cooks have experimented and used their imaginations and come up with a host of approaches to ending up with a beautiful bird on the holiday table.
