I tried something new for Thanksgiving this year. See, I like bacon. No I LOVE bacon. Sometimes in my head I'm like that dog from that commercial. "Iiiiit's BACON! Bacon bacon bacon!"
So when Alex showed me this idea online for turkey, I had a foodgasm, then I knew it would be done.
Bacon wrapped turkey!
See, you start with some bacon.
Then you get yourself a big ass turkey.
Then you wrestle that bird, force it into submission, and make it your bitch. Your bacony bitch. You'll know you've won when it looks like this:
I also stuffed onions, garlic, and butter into it's crevices, then I baked it in one of those oven bags.
This is what it looked like before we ate it:
I'm completly serious when I say that that was the best turkey I have ever had. Oh yes. I have tons more in the fridge and I'm lusting after it right now.
Next time you are making a turkey, then you NEED to try this.
I had it again this year, and I still have the opinion that this turkey puts all others to shame!
