This is my most favorite Thanksgiving recipe. It is the one I have tried since the first time I had turkey. I am very proud of this recipe and will make it again and again. The fact that it is a turkey is not the only thing that makes this recipe so good. These three ingredients, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce and the gravy, go perfectly into this amazing dish.
The recipe is so easy to make, it is foolproof. It doesn’t even matter if you use turkey or not. If you are having trouble finding ground turkey, go to your local grocery store and ask for “ground turkey.” If you don’t have turkeys, you can use a mixture of ground beef and turkey.
When you buy ground turkey it is usually at least 3 to 4 times as cheap as a turkey, but that can be quite a bit. And while you may be saving a lot of money by buying ground turkey, you will usually come up with more reasons to make sure you buy a lot of ground turkey.
Ground turkey is a great source of protein and you can buy a lot of it at the grocery store. The problem is that ground turkey is usually dried out and loses its moistness after a couple weeks. If you want to eat a turkey that has not been treated with antibiotics or hormones, you can eat it raw. Most supermarkets will do this for you if you ask, but some wont.
How often does a ground turkey get to be eaten? When a ground turkey is fresh it is more likely to be cut up and shipped to your local butcher.

If you ask for it, the butcher will ask about the health of your bird. And it’s usually the health of the birds that they ask about.
The fact is, the USDA requires all meat sold at retail to be labeled as to the age and maturity of the animal. The USDA does not require that a turkey be labeled as “unaged.” That’s because the USDA is not allowed to label any meat as “unaged” because it would be too risky for consumers.
While the USDA doesn’t require you to label meat that isn’t slaughtered fresh, they do require that the meat be labeled to the USDA’s “Freshness Guideline”. The problem is that turkey is a product of the wild. You can buy a turkey at almost any grocery store. So a turkey that is bought from a butcher that you know was slaughtered fresh, but is still “aged” is the same as a turkey that is purchased from a butcher that was slaughtered but was still “aged”.
The real problem is that consumer-labeled turkeys are almost never cooked.
