Thanksgiving Turkey Talk

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so it is time to purchase the turkey. Turkey itself is gluten-free, but always make sure to check the gravy packet and other ingredients or seasonings that may have been added. Additionally, if you are attending Thanksgiving dinner someplace else, make sure the turkey wasn’t cooked with the stuffing inside. Unless the stuffing is gluten-free, the turkey won’t be gluten-free if the stuffing is cooked inside.

We made this turkey last year for Thanksgiving and were very impressed. I had a lot of skeptical friends and family before I made this. No one believed it went right from the freezer to the oven. It was flavorful and moist and could not have been simpler to make. If you are short on time or don’t like messing with a raw turkey, this is the way to go! Jennie-O Oven Ready Whole Turkeys can be found at Walmart. Check the location finder to make sure the store closest to you carries it.
