During a recent interview with ABC News, Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks dished on their very first Thanksgiving together as a couple. The holidays can be stressful under normal circumstances, but Trisha was tasked with cooking for her beau’s entire family. Now that’s pressure.
“There were about 12 or 14 people coming over and I had a turkey recipe that was my mom’s that Garth thought was like impossible because it seemed so easy,” Yearwood recalled. “He made me do a stunt turkey.”
“He was like, ‘I don’t believe it works,’ so he made me cook a turkey the day before and then when I proved that it worked then I cooked the other one,” she explained. “Now I realize he just wanted more turkey.”
“She falls for the stunt turkey every year,” Brooks humorously quipped.
Okay, so what’s Trisha’s secret to whipping up a perfect Thanksgiving day turkey?
“Put your oven really hot, like 500 degrees, and you put boiling water in with the bird, you cover it, you put it in the oven for an hour and then you turn the oven off and then you go to bed. You don’t open the door. It self-bastes and when you get up in the morning it’s done. You don’t touch it. You don’t have to baste it. You don’t have to do anything and it’s perfect. People don’t believe it works but it works.”
