T-Day H-Hour

20161124_0958101600x1200Spatchcock turkey is 2 for 2 here at W4D today.  Herbed butter under the skin, and massaged all over the bird after dry brining and an overnight in the basement fridge air-drying.20161124_1110331600x1200Sweet potatoes in olive oil and honey and teeny potatoes in olive oil and kosher salt on their trays ready for the oven.20161124_1220171600x1200The turkey turned out very well, note the leg position, there will be a short quiz later.20161124_1220121600x1200Clockwise from the top right:  Cloverleaf dinner rolls, sauteed Brussels sprouts, gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, honey roasted sweet potatoes, those little potatoes with rosemary, cranberry relish, and a stick of butter on top.  The dressing is on the counter behind me.  Grr20161124_1227001600x1200I remembered the dressing so it wasn’t a turkey dinner without.  That quiz I mentioned: What is peculiar about the turkey legs in the before and after pictures?

  1. That all looks YUMMY. What temp and how long did you roast your turkey. I’m still working with my new oven and want some options. LOL


    • 375 until instant read thermometer reads 150 mid breast, 180 thigh worked for this one, could have gone longer. Mine was still a tad red in the joints. After an hour I turned off the convection fan because it was looking brown enough.
