Thanksgiving Turkey, Fried edition – and a giveaway!

Post image for Thanksgiving Turkey, Fried edition – and a giveaway!

by Amber on November 10, 2010

Deep fried turkey is pretty delicious. But I know what you’re thinking – you’re pretty dern skeerred of turkey frying. Don’t be. Just stick with me, okay?

I have great memories of frying a turkey in the backyard at my Nanny and Gaga’s. The men all standing around a great big pot of boiling oil, the scent of crisping skin and sage wafting through the breezy Thursday afternoon in San Antonio.

My sister and I stood nearby, amazed that a turkey could be cooked in such little time. We were used to Nanny waking in the early hours to start the turkey roaster she’s had since the 70s (and it still works too!), and then lovingly basting it every 45 minutes like clockwork. Delicious? Yes. Labor intensive? YES.

The true secret to any good turkey, whether roasting or frying, is a good brine. You don’t have to buy special box mixes, I promise. You have everything you need, right in your own kitchen to make the actual brine. You may need two extra tools to execute successfully, but your local grocery store will have what you need.

The beautifully fried turkey in the photo above was brined for only 6 hours, but it has TONS of flavor. Leaving it overnight would have been spectacular, but know that you don’t have to.

Turkey frying, even back in the early 90s, when the trend started, has always been a bit scary. Giant vats of oil popping and bubbling in your backyard – and you’d better make sure you’re far enough away from the house not to start a fire. The bird has to be completely dry before submerging, and the oil temperature has to be kept constant, using an open flame.

All of that is pretty intimidating. In step Masterbuilt and Butterball. They’ve created an indoor turkey fryer. Yes, I did say indoor.

I’m not going to lie. I was really nervous to get going on the Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer. But all those nerves were for naught. Let me tell you how easy using the Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer is:

I fried a turkey on a Monday night. After work. In my pajamas. And we ate it for dinner. On Monday Night. Fried turkey, on MONDAY NIGHT.

And I cleaned it today, in about 20 minutes flat. In fact, most of the pieces are dishwasher safe. LOVES. Here’s a video to show you just how easy it is:

You want this thing in your home and as part of your Thanksgiving routine. Trust me.

The really exciting part? Masterbuilt and Butterball have graciously offered a brand-spanking-new turkey fryer to be given away here on Bluebonnets & Brownies. Gee, thanks guys!

So how do you win? There are several ways:

1) Leave a comment below letting me know what you’d serve with your fried turkey this Thanksgiving.

I’d serve it with stuffing, of course. And, cranberry sauce, rustic mushrooms (a family recipe), sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts….

Lisa November 10, 2010 at 8:56 AM

What a wonderful giveaway! We are frying a turkey this year and we’re just saying last night how we need to get out and buy our fryer. With our fried turkey, we’ll be serving it with homemade cranberry sauce, stuffing (or dressing like my grandma used to call it), sweet potatoes, garlic mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese, green bean casserole, homemade bread, a relish tray, and 2 more side dishes I haven’t though of yet, trying to find 2 new recipes for that! Instead of doing the traditional desserts this year, we’re doing a “dessert remix.” Still focusing on pumpkin, apple, pecan and sweet potato desserts but instead of pies, something else. :)

I would serve a traditional Puerto Rican feast of Arroz con Gandules (translates to rice and pigeon peas), Tostones and flan (more like a cheesecake in my house)and the best stuffing I’ve ever tasted that my grandma taught me. It includes plantains and bacon of all things, how can it be bad? lol

Sharon November 10, 2010 at 3:43 PM

Tony reallllllly wants one of these. Like really bad. And oh, do you EVEN have to ask what I would serve with this turkey?! STUFFING and nothing else. Ok, maybe gravy and pie. But I am a purist. And I only have so much room in my tummy–that precious real estate is for one thing only. Stuffing, dressing, cornbread stuffing…basically anything made with bread, onions, herbs, and probably sausage.

NOMZ!

I prefer the Cajun butter injection in the turkey. On your brine, be careful because most turkeys already have salt and liquid that they are packaged in. You don’t want your bird too salty.

I’m hungry for the rice dressing recipe from my mother and of course the pumpkin roll.

I have always been afraid to fire a turkey. Too many horror stories of burning down a house. I would love to try the technique. I would have all the fixins’ with it- corn bread dressing, sweet potatoes, green beans. Oh…I can’t wait for Thanksgiving.

cwaltz November 11, 2010 at 9:53 PM

This entry is for my hubby who wants a turkey fryer pretty badly. I’d serve mashed taters, green beans and cranberry sauce with Big Bird.

I would serve it with our traditional sides – mashed potatoes, stuffing and green bean casserole. Nothing unique about the food each year, but the company is always good for a few surprises.

With my succulent, moist deep-fried turkey, I would serve mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie.

Linda King November 12, 2010 at 5:52 PM

What an excellent idea for a give-a-way! I live in Louisiana and I love fried turkey but to be able to do it by myself and in my own kitchen? What could be better?! I will cook all the traditional sides…dirth rice, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy, roasted pecan dressing, green beans with salt pork and new potatoes plus cranberry sauce. I’ll top the meal off with sweet potatoe pie, pecan pie and some pistachio delight desert. Come on over!! Everyone is welcome!

I would use it when my mom comes to visit this Christmas – haven’t seen her in over a year! I miss her sooooo much! I have not had her with me for Christmas in almost 3 years!

This would be wonderful as this is the Cajun way to cook a Turkey, and it would SO remind me of home!

My husband and I joke a lot about frying a turkey for Thanksgiving. We’d get a kick out of having one for real. And of course I’d serve it with all the regular (for us at least) fixin’s of stuffing, tortellini salad, rolls, mashed potatoes, and top it off with pumpkin pie (who knew you could do more with a pumpkin than carve a face in it ;) )

Lisa Lassiter November 14, 2010 at 11:14 PM
