Ingredients: 8 – 15lb. Turkey 1 C. melted butter 1 C. stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good) 1 C. un-popped popcorn (Orville Redenbacher’s low-fat is best!) Salt/Pepper to taste Directions: Preheat oven to 350º. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan, making sure the neck end is toward the front of the oven, not the back. After about 4 hours, listen for the popping sounds. When the turkey’s ass blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the room… it’s done.
