Homemade Poultry Seasoning Recipe
Have you seen Bell’s Poultry Seasoning before? It comes in a little yellow box with a turkey on the front. This is one of my all-time favorite seasonings, especially for stuffing or dressing.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to find it at my grocery store lately, so I decided to make a homemade version. And it came out great! (I actually think my blend is a little better. 😉) You will love it with your turkey or in your stuffing or dressing!
Two Ways to Make Your Thanksgiving Turkey
If you are planning for a smaller Thanksgiving dinner, you can cook a small turkey in the oven or a turkey breast in your Instant Pot. However, instead of just one small turkey, why not two? Cooking two turkeys in your oven gives you a smaller turkey to enjoy, if you want to eat just one during dinner, but having another turkey for later also gives you more meat and bones for future meals and for making turkey bone broth.
How to Make Turkey Bone Broth
You can make bone broth with your leftover turkey bones using your Instant Pot or slow cooker. And if you want to make turkey bone broth on your stovetop, you can follow the same instructions as making chicken bone broth on the stovetop.
