So, we all know that the modern man is not only at ease in the kitchen, he is a budding master chef able to dazzle his guests with his culinary concoctions.
As a self-styled renaissance man, I had my mother and sister over for Thanks giving and cooked a medium sized turkey. I brined and I basted using the best advice I could find on the internet. The result? A golden brown bird, the meat tender and juicy, that was greatly enjoyed by all. Unfortunately, not enjoyed enough to save me for a week’s worth ot turkey sandwiches for lunch.
“Surely there is a better way” the modern man in me cried out. So back to the Web I went and found a collection of recipes I classed under What the heck to do with a hundred pounds of leftover turkey.
For you other modern men out there (and your modern wifes/girlfriends) I offer you some of the best on the ‘net:
