I thought this information could be useful from Kim Komando. The National Turkey Federation has put together an excellent cooking site. Use advanced searches to find recipes that meet specific criteria. If you're looking for something more unusual, look at the recipes from professional chefs. There are even cooking demonstrations -- perfect for those new to cooking. It's also a great place to find ideas for leftovers! In the past few years, frying has become a popular way to prepare turkey. If you've never done it before, visit LouAna's site. It offer tips and step-by-step instructions for frying your turkey. But be sure to read the safety tips before you get started. Butterball is synonymous with turkey. And the company wants to make sure your turkey comes out flawless. You'll find tools to help you calculate cooking times and what you need to buy. There are also demonstration videos and conversion charts. But I like their Turkey Talk the best. E-mail or call with your question, and you'll get great advice from the experts. Hormel will also help you get things in order. First, check out ideas for meals, appetizers and special recipes for the kids. Then, visit the Party Planner. It will help you prepare a list for the grocery store. So you won't lose your place in that long line when you have to run back to aisle six! And for laughs, visit the Spam museum.
