The 30 Best Recipes for Turkey — in Every Shape and Form
We are just days away from the biggest turkey-eating day of the year (it’s not nicknamed “Turkey Day” for nothing). Nearly every table in America — 88 percent of them to be exact — will feature a pump and golden roast turkey this year.

Here is an ultimate turkey recipe roundup to show you all the wonderful things you can do with turkey — the white meat, the dark meat, and even the mangled roasted carcass. From Thanksgiving turkey, to ingenious leftover-inspired recipes, to recipes you could make all year round, check out this list of 30 awesome turkey recipes.
