We aren’t all gourmet chefs; some of us need help, especially on Thanksgiving, and that’s where the Butterball hotline comes in.
The Turkey Talk-Line revealed to PEOPLE some of the most outrageous questions that people have asked them when it comes to turkey time:
- I’m looking at a turkey from 1969 sitting here in my father’s freezer. Any tips on the best way to cook a 30-year-old bird? (The Talk-Line suggested the person toss it out and buy a new one.)
- My turkey thawed on my lap. Can I eat it? (The guy won a turkey at a casino and it thawed on his bus ride home. The Talk-Line doesn’t recommend eating a turkey that has thawed in warmer-than-recommended temperatures.)
- How do I roast my turkey so it gets golden brown tan lines in the shape of a turkey bikini? (The Talk-Line helped out by telling the person to create a bikini look by using aluminum foil in certain spots.)
- Is a soapy turkey recoverable? (The caller had washed her turkey with dish soap. The Talk-Line said you don’t have to wash your bird before the big meal.)
