    I like it thinly sliced as deli meat, but I can just never get into Thanksgiving turkey for some reason.

    Brined, covered in butter, and roasted 🙂

    I’ve never had fried turkey before, but I hear it’s amazing!

    Roasted and drowned in gravy on my plate. Divine.

    We did fried last year and it was really really good.  I think it is my new favorite, but I still like it roasted too.

    No one does fried turkey out here because there simply isn’t the space for it (I live in the land of large houses on tiny properties). If/when I visit my family in the midwest we get fried turkey! We roast our turkey for our immediate family’s Thanksgiving but my extended family usually cooks it on the BBQ. For both of my guy’s Thanksgivings we eat a roasted turkey, also. 


    PS. Can you tell I have a million Thanksgivings to go to every year??

    Yum.  When I was little I liked it cold the next day with mayonaise.

    In any way that doesn’t involve a dumb joke about my heritage. (As in “You’re from Turkey? You must eat a lot of turkey…Hahaha” and 500 other stupid variations of the same thing. )

    I always like sides better than the turkey itself; we usually have a fried one and a roasted one and they are about the same to me.  FI SWEARS  fried turkey is better tho.

    I have never had fried turkey but have heard nothing but good things about it.  I love my turkey brined and roasted.  Fi’s mother makes the best roasted turkey that is super juicy.  She only makes a breast so I think that must be why.

    @trugem: Even more annoying is the fact that everyone who makes it thinks it’s SO original and funny. I’ve even had it used on me as a pick-up line before (where is the eye-roll icon when you need one?)

    For the record, 1. The country is even’t called Turkey in our language 2. Not my fault the English decided to call it that 3. Actually we don’t eat turkey at all back home 4. Aside all this, I like my turkey bestas a deli meat, in a sandwich with mustard and mayo.

    Fried turkey is AMAZING! I’ve only had it once but I absolutely loved it. Then people started setting their houses on fire so my FIL’s decided to put the kibosh on that. Every year since we’ve had it roasted and its nowhere near as good.
