What You Need
- wooden spoon, turkey, paper towels, cutting board
Insert the wooden spoon inside the turkey
Working carefully, so you don’t break the skin, slide the wooden spoon all the way inside the turkey, creating a lifting handle.
Use paper towel in other hand for support
Hold paper towels (use a few so your hand is well protected) against the bird’s end to keep the turkey from slipping off the spoon.
Lift and place the turkey
With the spoon and paper towels, gently transfer the turkey from the pan to your cutting board.
