Butterball Turkey topped with onions and sliced of potatoes

For this year’s Thanksgiving I bought a butter ball turkey. This is a 5-6 pound of turkey. The size of the turkey is kind of big. It’s simple to bake, but the cooking time takes longer. Putting some potatoes and onions on top of the turkey makes the turkey look nicer. I put some aluminum foil on the wings and drumsticks to prevent it from getting burned.
When cutting the turkey, the knife has to be slanted at an angle to have a perfect piece of turkey. I prefer eating dark meat because it tastes good. I prefer white meats to be used in making sandwiches. You can choose what meat you want to eat as your desire.
Kids and adults would love this turkey. The best time to bake the turkey is early in the morning. You can have the turkey for lunch or dinner. The taste of the meat is good. The best combination that goes well with this turkey is rice. With the turkey and sauce, you can mix in the rice. You can also make a turkey sandwich with some gravy sauce and a bowl of salad on the side. I like this turkey a lot.
If you know you will not finish it in 2-3 days, you can freeze it in the freezer and take it out to defrost when you eat it. Try making the turkey, and you will know how good this turkey will taste.

Boiled turkey leg

This boiled turkey leg is delicious and simple to make. I decided, to use a turkey leg from a whole turkey. When a turkey is bought at a store. It needs to defrost in the fridge for 2-3 days.
When cleaning the turkey, remove any black spots on the turkey. Use some salt and rub the turkey. Rubbing the turkey can out the dirty smell from the turkey. When all rubbed, rinse the turkey. Open wide the turkey legs and follow the guidelines can cut the turkey leg off. The same way that you will cut a chicken.
Boil the turkey leg in hot boiling water for 30-45 minutes. Insert a knife in the middle. If blood comes out, it is not ready. When there is no more blood coming out or pink inside, it is done. Do not overcook the turkey. It will be tough. When ready, place it onto a plate and place it on the table.
