corazon you certainly have the market on cute boys. He is so very cute!

Licia, gravy was a concern of mine as that is my favorite part of the meal usually LOL. Mom was a bit concerned as well. What she ended up doing was buying some gravy from the turkey farm down the street. Their gravy is amazing to begin with so we were all OK with that. Mom also did something with the giblets and made a gravy out of those, but I am not exactly sure what she did. I will have to find out. I do know that any juice that came out of the bird while carving was poured into the giblet gravy.

Lugaru, bacon topped turkey sounds amazing (although so do bacon topped beef or bacon topped fish, bacon topped ice cream... ). I will have to try that some day.

I am glad that you had the turkey farm with the excellent gravy near by!! I was just hoping you didn't have to resort to the mcCormicks powdered mix!!

GB, just read your turkey thread and saw your pics - Yum, I have a fryer I have never used yet. Was wondering have you done many more- that was 2005 ! ?

No we have not done any more since then. It was my brothers fryer and he did use it a number of times (without me ) for frying everything under the sun, including mashed potatoes. He and his fiance have been spending Thanksgiving going on cruises lately and while he offered the fryer to us to borrow we have not been able to take him up on the offer for various reasons.

I use my two for hot holidays. As in the upcoming 4th.
One is for frying, the other for boiling (lobster, corn)

I love the turkey, but yes, no stuffing, and no gravy.
But we don't eat that heavy down here when it this hot.
So we don't really miss it.

And yes, that bacon covered turkey sounds too good.
I could eat turkey every week.

Thanks, Barb L, for bring the thread out of the archives.
