2-Hour Turkey, Really.

I ran across this recipe a few years back from my local grocery store. I was VERY skeptical that one could actually cook an entire turkey (regardless of size) in about 2 hours and have it be edible. Well, not only does this actually work, it produces the BEST roasted turkey I've had to date. NO MORE GETTING UP AT 4 a.m. to start the holiday turkey, NO MORE BASTING. It's so incredibly fast and easy. It has become the only way I roast turkeys. Turkey...it's not JUST for holidays, anymore. The biggest turkey I made this way was 22.5 pounds. It took about 2 hours 15 minutes to cook. WOW.

The flavor is all that you would expect from a well-cooked Thanksgiving turkey, but the technique is so wonderfully different! The Crew and I cooked a 14 lb turkey in 1 hr 15 min. The Test Kitchen

The holiday season is a time for indulgence... and, oh boy, did I indulge. I don't regret the pieces of cake and all the cookies, but it's time to reset...
