Brined Thanksgiving Turkey – O-M-G! Best turkey ever! This turkey was so tender, juicy and flavorful! I could not get enough of this turkey! I was shocked. The brining was so simple, It only takes a few minutes to make the brine.
Do you brine your turkey? We did for the first time at Christmas last year and we will be doing it every time we make a turkey now! I have never been a turkey fan. I think it lacks flavor and is dry. I usually have leftover lasagna for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner!
I was reading an article about brining, and I decided to give it a try. O-M-G! Best turkey ever! Everyone agreed! This turkey was so tender, juicy and flavorful! I could not get enough of this turkey! I was shocked.
The brining was so simple. It only takes a few minutes to make the brine and then the turkey just hangs out in the fridge until you are ready to start roasting. We let the turkey brine for about 16 hours. The cooking time will depend on how big your turkey is. A good rule of thumb is about 15 minutes per pound at 350 degrees. The best way to tell if the turkey is done is to use a meat thermometer.
I hope you will take the plunge and give this brined turkey a try this year!
