Q: Can I cook the Thanksgiving turkey the day before and just reheat it?
A: Technically speaking, you can cook the turkey ahead and reheat, but quality will suffer, and reheating lean meat is a tricky business. The bird is at its best when it’s fresh out of the oven and fully rested. If you want to get a jump-start on your turkey prep a day ahead and guarantee juicy, flavorful results, consider brining the bird. Here’s a fantastic Cooking Light recipe: Apple Cider-Brined Turkey with Savory Herb Gravy.
