Thankful for Turkey Day: 5 Flavorful Turkey Recipes

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? It may be hard to believe but it’s true. The majority of Americans choose to put Turkey as the centerpiece for their dinner. I am always up for a Turkey challenge and I came across a few unique turkey recipes. Hopefully, these turkey recipes will help with my Thanksgiving cooking disasters. Warning: these recipes may have a little humor thrown in.

Suntanned Turkey 


If you are tired of the same old looking turkey, then perhaps the recipe for Suntanned Turkey is for you. It’s not only delicious but also gives a little humor to the stressful day. Enjoy!  The good thing about this trick is that you can use it on just about any turkey you decide to bake. Try the Suntanned Turkey trick  on this Classic Turkey with Mushroom Gravy.

If you’re just not into a deep fried turkey or a suntanned turkey, then perhaps the more traditional route is for you.  Looking at this turkey makes my mouth water and even more excited for Thanksgiving. This is a recipe for Mom’s Roast Turkey! Check it out and tell us what you think. Yummy!

Unique Turkey Recipe

Everyone likes a unique turkey every now and again. As you can see this Turkey is full of color. The ingredients range from tequila to apricot jam. Mix all of these ingredients together and you have the perfect recipe for a Unique Turkey.

Left-Over Turkey Chili

All of these turkey recipes are awesome. But what do we do with the leftover turkey? I came across this recipe for Terrific Turkey Chili. I like this because instead of using ground beef for the chili, you can just use the left-over turkey from dinner. There are so many things you can use the left over turkey for…what do you do with it?
