Turkey - it’s the prize of the table at Thanksgiving dinner but also the cause of a long list of woes for many a home chef.
Why do we know this? Because every year Butterball set up a Turkey Hotline to assist home cooks in need and they’ve just released a collection of some of the craziest calls they’ve ever received.
These are people at the end of the line when it comes to Turkey and a few at least who sound like they shouldn’t be cooking at all.
Below are sone of our favourites from the list.
