Deep-fried turkey

Recommended Posts

This Thanksgiving I’m going to my SIL house and she is planning on deep-frying the turkey. Can anyone tell me about the points on this process? Deep frying doesn’t sound healthy! Thanks


If it’s meant to be it can only happen by me!

If they do it right, from what I understand the meat itself absorbs very little oil. If you take off the skin you should be OK.

My hubby fries one every year now. The turkey really is not greasy. I think the high heat sears the meat and doesn't allow the oil to get inside. I agree, as long as you take the skin off, it's okay. By the way, they're really good!

It'll be the tastiest turkey you ever had. Don't eat the skin. The hot oil sears the skin so the turkey doesn't soak up the oil and the juices are kept in to keep it moist.

 

During the year, I get Jennie-O Cajun style turkey breast at the Food Lion deli counter - its deep fried and 98% fat free. A lot of time it goes on sale for buy a pound get a pound free.
