Rumor has it, Benjamin Franklin was a big fan of the bird. It’s raised, sold and eaten on every continent. It’s become an everyday staple, and takes center stage on Thanksgiving and Christmas tables. We’re talking turkey, of course, one of America’s favorite proteins. Our love of turkey runs so deep, in fact, that Americans consumed 5.26 billion pounds of the poultry in 2020 — that’s 16 pounds per person!
One reason the humble turkey has become so popular is its versatility. It can be easily ground into patties, turned into sausage, oven-roasted for deli meat, smoked and grilled. And it’s a tasty leaner alternative to beef and pork. Take a look at these recipes from Georgia’s White Oak Pastures.
