Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away and I can already taste that juicy Butterball Turkey meat melting in my mouth.  I remember Thanksgivings as a kid with my mom and stepdad and she wouldn’t buy anything BUT Butterball Turkeys.  There was just something about them – they were juicier and more full of flavor than other turkeys.  So now, in my home we have Butterball Turkeys every Thanksgiving and it is the BEST choice!

If you are anything like I am, you want your Thanksgiving dinner to be flawless, memorable, and filling.  Butterball is here to help you accomplish that goal!  Tips are available from Butterball via Butterball.com, Facebook, Twitter, emails and calls at 1-800-BUTTERBALL (1-800-288-8372).  “Cooks can reach us in more ways than ever this year for our best tips for a picture-perfect Thanksgiving,” said Mary Clingman, director of the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line.  “Whether Thanksgiving cooks read the 60 tweets per minute we share on Thanksgiving Day, seek bilingual assistance, watch how-to videos on Butterball.com or send us questions via email, our best advice is always plan ahead.”

TOP FIVE “MAKE IT BETTER” TIPS

Thawing with Ease:  Thawing in the refrigerator is the recommended method.  For every four pounds of turkey, allow at least one day of thawing in the refrigerator.  However, if your turkey is still frozen and you’re short on time, submerge the turkey in cold water.  Leave the turkey in the wrapper, place it in a tub or sink of cold water and allow 30 minutes of thaw time for every pound of turkey.

Food Prep 101:  Practice good food safety procedures: wash hands often; keep raw turkey and ready-to-eat foods separated; cook foods to proper temperatures – the turkey should reach 180 degrees Fahrenheit in the thigh, 170 degrees Fahrenheit in the breast and 165 degrees Fahrenheit in the center of the stuffing; and refrigerate cooked turkey promptly to reduce temperature to below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

It’s All About How You Cook It:  The Butterball Turkey Talk-Line experts recommend the open pan roasting method using a flat rack in a shallow pan so that the turkey cooks evenly and is raised off the bottom of the pan.  If you don’t have a flat rack, take a long piece of Reynold’s Wrap Aluminum Foil and crinkle it the long way to create a tube like shape.  Then shape the tube of foil into a medium sized circle to place at the bottom of the pan.  Place the turkey on this homemade cooking rack – this elevates the turkey, reduces the amount of dishes (just toss the rack in the trash) and cooks the turkey evenly.

Bites of Wisdom:  Recipes don’t have to be trendy or complicated to impress guests.  Butterball’s Master Chef Tony Seta suggests taking traditional mashed potatoes and adding simple ingredients – Butterball Turkey Bacon and Asiago cheese – that’ll create a little extra flavor.  Don’t anticipate any leftovers!

Don’t Break the Bank:  Start thinking about the meal in advance and look for ways to save.  Butterball provides easy ways for Thanksgiving cooks to save by partnering with brands synonymous with Thanksgiving including Stove Top Stuffing Mix, Heinz HomeStyle Gravy, Pillsbury, Reynolds and more!

If you need more help, access Thanksgiving advice from the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line experts no matter where you are – in the aisles, at the dinner table or in the kitchen.

Live Chat:  Engage with our turkey experts during live chats throughout the month of November and receive real-time suggestions and advice to ensure a flawless holiday.

Facebook and Twitter:  Help is also available through the Butterball Facebook and Twitter pages with real-time tips and turkey prep information.

Butterball.com:  Log on the website or mobile site to receive turkey advice, promotions, and new recipes.  In addition, three popular food and lifestyle bloggers will post recipe ideas and personal anecdotes, including special tips on how to make your Thanksgiving better than ever.

1-800-BUTTERBALL:  Turkey Talk-Line experts will be available this season starting November 1, 2011, through December 25, 2011, to answer questions and assist Thanksgiving cooks.

MY THOUGHTS

I am honored to be working with Butterball again for a 3rd year now on The Mommy-Files.  Butterball Turkeys make our Thanksgivings amazing and I am excited to have a Butterball Turkey at our table again this year!  One of my quick tips to make Thanksgiving dinner a successful one is to have a schedule planned out.  Starting with the stuffing preparation, turkey cooking, and the rest of your dinner, it will make your Thanksgiving day less stressful than if you were to play everything by ear.  Also, be sure to begin purchasing foods, that won’t go bad or that you can freeze, ahead of time – helping to cut down on meal preparation costs.  A big thanks to Butterball for this feature and giveaway opportunity on The Mommy-Files.

    I try to add something to the table that is not a traditional Thanksgiving dish. Maybe some Stuffed Squash beside the Green Bean Casserole. Maybe a rustic bread with olive oil for dipping alongside the dinner rolls and butter. Maybe some roasted acorn squash with brown sugar and cinnamon near the pumpkin pies. I also make sure to have holiday–and other–movies for anyone to watch.

    What makes my Thanksgiving memorable is having all my children and grandchildren over at the same time and them we all play football after dinner outside them it is nap time for the little ones and football for the grow ups. Love Thanksgiving !!! Like on FB and thanks for the great sweep. Hope to win 🙂

  198. Mary Calabrese says:

    My tip: think about those who have less than you do. We have friends over for the meal who might not otherwise have a place to celebrate.

    My best Thanksgiving tip is to prepare as many side dishes and desserts ahead of time. I cut much time and stress off the day by making much of the food ahead of time and rewarming right before the meal. I can enjoy the family togetherness without the stress of so much cooking.

    Making it memorable, aside from having the family over, is making the dinner SUPERB. My motto for holiday cooking is less health, more delicious. I can keep healthy during the holidays simply by eating less of a good thing. I would rather my food tasted fantastic than to worry about calories. 😛

    Since I can’t be with my Mom & Dad on Thanksgiving and we don’t go to another family members house, I cook exactly what she used to make when I was a child. We had the same thing every year, but I loved it and it’s a tradition that I’d like to pass onto my children. We’d have a turkey stuffed, and eat the soft stuffing inside and also make a crunchy stuffing outside the bird, homemade rolls (looked like round pretzels, but with yeast dough), corn, homemade mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, green beans (I make green bean casserole) and homemade pumpkin pie and apple pie.

    for us, it is a potluck, friends and family bring their favorite dish over and we have fun socializing and eating the cook’s specialty. At the end, the chores are written on slips of paper and everyone gets to draw (clean table, wash dishes, relax in the recliner lol,) and whatever your slip says you have to do 🙂 it is a good fair way to divide up the chores and everyone seems to enjoy doing it that way.

    My favorite tip is to not burn anything. 🙂

  420. Beth Brickell says:

    I do as much preparation ahead as possible. That way I only have to do essentials the day of Thanksgiving. I also welcome any help. The whole point is not to stress and enjoy the day!

  421. crystal l allen says:

    we try to have all of the food ready before the guest arrive that way we have time to relax and visit before the meal. we also all pitch in for clean up and that’s when the men enjoy the game on tv and the ladies take care of the left overs and dishes… plus we always seem to sneek in a little more dessert. the kids will play outside and have good cousin time after the meal. memories for everyone, clallen at ntin dot net
