This year for Thanksgiving we did the traditional oven roasted turkey with sausage cornbread stuffing, so for Christmas I did a fried turkey! Fried turkey is really good, takes a lot less time than baking a turkey – a LOT less time. How about 3 to 5 minutes per pound or until it reaches an internal temp of 160! Carry over cooking will take it to 165 which is when the turkey can be served. As with all poultry do not serve before it reaches an internal temp of 165! Fried turkey… try it, you’ll like it!
