Fail #1: Overcooking a Still-Frozen Bird
"My Thanksgiving failure was when I didn't allow enough time for the turkey to thaw. When it came time to cook the still-frozen bird, I decided that cranking the oven to 500 degrees would surely cook the bird — not so much! The outside of the turkey was burnt and the inside was still raw!"
Our Tip: Give yourself extra time for defrosting — it always takes longer than you think!
