Bacon lattice turkey — seriously?
We’re doing Thanksgiving a day early this year because my daughter-in-law has to work Thursday. And she’s making it easy on herself by bringing in most of the food from a local restaurant. I don’t know how they’ll prepare the turkey, but chances are it will be roasted in a fairly traditional manner.
That’s fine with me. I’ll take my turkey any way I can get it. (I prefer the dark meat.) I’ve had it roasted, smoked, brined. And I’m sure I’d loved deep-fried too but am glad no one I know has tried to fix it. It looks dangerous.
However, there’s a new way of doing a turkey this year, and my first reaction was ugh! I know, I shouldn’t judge until I’ve tried it. It might be delicious. Then again …
So what do you think of the idea — bacon lattice turkey. They fixed it on “The Chew” this week, and I remain unimpressed. All that bacon had crisped up into a shell that they just lifted off, then chopped up to put in the gravy or something.
Anyway, if anyone out there fixes or has bacon lattice turkey, let me know how you liked it. A lot of foods are better with bacon, but I’m not convinced turkey is one of them.
