Healthy Holiday Recipe Substitution Tip of the Week

Roasting

Instead of using high fat cooking methods (such as frying) to cook your meats, try using lower fat cooking methods such as roasting, baking, or grilling. Since I’m not very familiar with roasting techniques, I checked around online and found this video podcast on the Food Network’s website explaining how to roast the perfect turkey. While some of you may have your turkey already cooked, if you have questions about how to make sure your main dish tastes great, check out this film.

I found another set of recommendations from the Splenda.com newsletter on how to slice your perfect turkey:


– Start with the proper tools: sturdy carving board, a sharpened knife, serving fork, and a warm platter.
– Let the bird rest for 15-20 minutes after removing from the oven, then remove stuffing (if the bird is stuffed) and set aside in a warm place.
– Remove the legs and thighs by pulling the legs gently outward and inserting the knife into the joints; repeat this same step to remove the wings.
– Slice the meat in a downward slant and place the slices on top of one another to keep them warm on the platter.
