I thought this sounded good!
Here is a turkey recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing -- imagine that. When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try.
8 - 15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is Good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER'S LOW FAT)
Salt/pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven.
Listen for the popping sounds. When the turkey's butt blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the room, it's done.
And, you thought I didn't cook... ....hehe
Happy Thanksgiving to all!

3/4 C. All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 C. Whole Wheat Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon Ginger
Sift all the above ingredients together. Set aside.
1/2 C. Butter or Shortening. (I use Olivio Soft Margarine.)
1 C. Sugar
1/8 C. Molasses
1 C. (2 medium sized ) mashed Bananas
1/2 C. Milk
1 teaspoon Lemon juice or Vinegar
1/2 C. chopped Walnuts
1/2 C. Raisins
1/2 C. Craisins
Cream Butter. Gradually add sugar, creaming well. Add eggs, bananas, and molasses. Blend thoroughly. Combine milk and lemon juice. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Blend well after each addition. Dredge fruits and walnuts with some extra flour, this keeps the fruit and nuts from sinking to the bottom of the bread. Stir into batter. Grease bottom of 9 x 5 x 3 inch pan. Pour in batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 to 70 min, until bread springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool 10 min. Remove from pan. Finish cooling on a wire rack. Store at room temperature, wrapped in aluminum foil. This is extra good, spread with butter or margarine and lightly heated in the microwave. It is also one of those breads that is better the longer it sits. I hope you will try my recipe and I am sure that you will enjoy it. Yum! I think I'll go make one now! And if you make it, let me know how you like it!
