How to Cook the Perfect Turkey this Thanksgiving #CdnTradition (Giveaway)

We often cook with Turkey throughout the year in various recipes but with Thanksgiving a few weeks away I have my eyes on a few yummy turkey recipes.  My family just loves the juicy turkey meat in our favourite dishes and I personally can not get enough of turkey sandwiches, turkey salad and turkey stir fry. But nothing beats cooking a Thanksgiving turkey with all of the festive trimmings and desserts.

I remember the very first turkey I cooked many years ago. I was a young mom and my parents lived on the other side of the country. Up until then, my mom or my grandmother had always hosted our family dinners. So I was flying solo and totally not knowing what I was getting into. I had my mom on the phone for most of it, and of course it turned out great. I think I was overwhelmed by the size and all of my friends saying they wake up super early to put it in the oven. Well if you put it on to cook early, you will be eating early. So I wake up like normal then start getting everything ready. Depending on the size we usually eat around our normal dinner time.

I have since cooked many turkeys on my own and I like to change up the way I cook them. I love how my mom made it very traditional, but I need to adjust to my family and their tastes. My teens love the white meat on the breast and my youngest can not get enough of the darker meats. She will eat both legs and wings if I let her. Anything leftover we make sandwiches with and usually a soup for the next week. That is if there is anything leftover with my growing bunch!

Depending on what may be happening though, we often have to adjust our meal plans. One year some of the kids had made plans and were not going to be home for dinner. So cooking less was an option. As they grow and start leaving the nest, I can see this being needed more and more.

Canadian Turkey is here to help you prepare the perfect turkey dinner that works for your family’s needs and deal with some of the typical challenges everyone faces while creating their perfect Thanksgiving meal.

Tip:Here’s a perfect solution for those of us who want to unveil that gorgeous festive bird for a small group of people.

Buy 1 whole Canadian turkey at your local grocer and get the butcher to cut it into 2 halves.  If your turkey is fresh, you can freeze the other half for another meal. The butcher can also cut a frozen turkey in half, so you can defrost and eat one immediately and place the other half directly in the freezer. Either way, this makes for a very economical way to have a beautiful and traditional turkey dinner for a smaller group.

Classic Roasted Half Turkey

Serves 4-6

Prep time: 15 mins., Cook time: 1 ½ – 2 hrs

For turkey:

  • ½ turkey, 3-4kg
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium onions
  • 6 large carrots
  • One bunch fresh rosemary
  • 3 large garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ cup chicken broth

For rub:

  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp ground sage
  • 1/2 tbsp ground rosemary
  • 1/2 tbsp ground thyme
  1. If your bird is frozen, place it in the refrigerator overnight to defrost.
  2. Pat the bird dry with paper towels.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Rub both sides of the turkey with olive oil.
  5. Combine all spices to make a rub. Sprinkle generously onto both sides of the bird.
  6. Slice your onions roughly into 1-inch rounds. Peel and wash the carrots.
  7. Pour wine and chicken broth into your roasting pan. Line the bottom with onions, whole carrots, unpeeled garlic cloves and rosemary sprigs.  Place the bird on top of all the vegetables, cut side down.
  8. Cook the turkey for 1 ½ – 2 hours until cooked through. Test for doneness with a meat thermometer.  Turkey should reach an internal temperature of 170°F (77°C) in the breast and 180°F (82°C) in the thigh.
  9. Remove turkey from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes before carving.
  10. Enjoy!

Classic Roasted Half Turkey

Tip:

Here’s an easy and quick way to make some homemade gravy to serve with your bird.  Take your pan drippings and skim all but a few tablespoons of the fat away.  Pour into a saucepan.  Unpeel the garlic.  Add the garlic and half the cooked onion to the saucepan.  Blend with a hand blender.  Combine 1 tbsp corn starch with ½ glass of milk until dissolved.  Add to the saucepan.  Stir over medium heat and bring to a simmer.  Lower the heat until mixture thickens and serve in a gravy boat.

Now if you are looking to cook a larger turkey you can, just adjust the recipe as needed.
