Bacon Paste??

Last night Scott and I had the most glorious of Christmas dinners for our friends. If there is one thing I truly enjoy, it is nourishing those I love.

I made the same turkey that my mother made for Thanksgiving, and I have been asked to share its SECRET.

Well, it’s not actually a secret, I got the recipe from my mom, and she probably got it off the internet somewhere. But secret it or no, it is a tasty way to prepare a turkey!

Get yourself a blender, and in it put 1/2 pound of raw, chopped bacon, 1/4 cup chopped parsley, 1 1/2 Tablespoons thyme leaves, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Blend until you have a nice, disgusting “bacon paste” (ew ew!).

So you’ve got a big ‘ole turkey, right? Separate its skin on the breast and legs. Shove the bacon paste under the skin and press on the outside to distribute it evenly. This is really disgusting. In fact, if anyone planning on eating the turkey later is around, encourage them not to come into the kitchen. They may change their mind.

However! The results after roasting are DELICIOUS. You get a nice, smokey taste to your turkey, that everyone at my dinner agreed was excellent.
