    Just look at that skin!  And I didn’t baste it one time!!

    This really is an easy recipe.  I mean if I can do it so can you.  I only cook turkey like once a year.

    Why is that???  Why do we only eat turkey at Thanksgiving??  Why not in March or May??

    There are so many things you can do with turkey.  Like turkey sandwiches, turkey enchiladas…. or even just replace the chicken with turkey in many of your favorite recipes like this chicken salad or Chicken Taco Salad.

    I love having leftover turkey to create new things with or even just eat the leftovers the way they are.  🙂

    I decided to get more creative with turkey this year though.  My husband found a culinary injector for me a while back I haven’t been able to use it.  Well, this was the perfect opportunity.

    I researched some different recipes to inject my turkey with and finally settled on something.  I know it sounds a little weird, injecting a turkey with beer, but trust me it’s good.  You could also replace the beer with apple juice and it would be equally delicious!
