Deep-Fried Turkey

Wayne wants to deep-fry a turkey for Thanksgiving this year. Since it's been a while, he decided it would be a good idea to make sure everything still works. We're pleased to report that it does! If you haven't ever tried turkey cooked this way, do so. It's fabulous - moist and flavorful.Follow the instructions that come with the fryer you're using, but basically you bring 3 1/2 gallons of oil to 350°, drop in a turkey that's been seasoned (we tried injecting it this time with a basic vinaigrette), fry for 3 minutes per pound, remove and carve. It was the perfect accompaniment for the Dutch oven broccoli casserole that he also made.
I'm not posting the recipe (although you can always ask for it) because it wasn't my favorite way to eat broccoli, but it was still good. He combined broccoli, eggs, milk and cheese and then baked it until it was done. Pretty simple!
