IMG_1977 revised CM 550

As the final countdown commences, we couldn’t help but add one more recipe between our Woodchuck® Wednesday dishes. We know we’re a couple days from Wednesday, but this one’s important. It’s the big kahuna. The centerpiece. One dish that brings an entire family together for a day. It’s the Thanksgiving turkey. From cranberry sauce to stuffing this bird is a juicy and delicious base for every mouthful. With such a noteworthy dish, comes many different options for preparation. A turkey can be baked, smoked, or deep-fried. It can be cooked with stuffing, vegetables, and even sometimes a chicken and a duck (Oh, those TurDucKens)! Even with such endless recipes, we couldn’t help but look to see how we could put our own spin on such a specialty. So of course we did!
