Do you want your Thanksgiving Turkey to be moist, extra flavorful with a slight smoky flavor without actually smoking it? Try my Thanksgiving Turkey Secret Flavor Weapon – BACON BUTTER!
1 stick of softened salted butter
½ pound of raw bacon
½ teaspoon chopped fresh herbs (Rosemary, Thyme, Sage & Parsley)
Dash of black pepper
COOKING MUSIC SELECTION: Simon & Garfunkel Scarborough Fair
Place all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor on high and pulverize them until they are a smooth paste. With your hands feel up your turkey by slipping your fingers in between the skin and the breasts (that sounded wrong : ) slather the bacon butter paste underneath all of the skin you can get in between. Any remaining bacon butter goes on the outside of the bird. Roast your turkey as would normally. It will come out extra delicious and tender.
