Pasture-raised turkeys are naturally packed with juicy flavor, but cooking an entire turkey can be daunting (and often time-consuming). If you are cooking in a smaller kitchen this year, or happen to be taking on the task for the first time, spatchcocking your turkey is one of the most efficient ways to cook your bird. This method of removing the turkey's backbone to flatten the body allows for the meat to cook more evenly and quickly, and lets the legs reach a safe temperature without drying out the breasts. The result is a juicy, delicious bird. This recipe offers a simple, and somewhat quick, way to cook your Thanksgiving turkey. Plus, almost everything you need can be found in our Thanksgiving Harvest, be sure to add a vegetable pack for all the essentials!
