Roasting a turkey isn’t an easy thing to do. It’s very easy to overcook the bird, but you definitely want it to be safe to eat and cooked all the way through. That’s a tough balance to achieve. All cooks have their own secret to the perfect holiday turkey. Some baste throughout the cooking time, while others swear using a brine is the best way to a moist turkey. Me? I put pats of butter (an entire stick’s worth of them) under the skin all over the bird, concentrating on the breast meat. That makes for a very juicy and tasty turkey. There's also the question of "to stuff, or not to stuff?" I don't stuff, but that's just my personal choice.
We’ve all made our mistakes along the way, so if you need help on Thanksgiving Day, you can always call the Butterball Turkey Talk Line! They’ve been helping amateur chefs pull off the holiday successfully for 40 years! And now they’re so much more than just a phone number. They also help people by text, social media, an online chat and Amazon Alexa! “Hey Alexa...do you smell something burning?” Oh boy! I hope not!
And new this year, Butterball experts will be using TikTok as well, and they'll have recipes to dance too!
The traditional 1-800-BUTTERBALL phone number is already up and running, and it’ll be available through Christmas Eve!
