Five delicious Meals to try this turkey season By Truong Phan

Most, if not all, families celebrate Thanksgiving. Not only is it the time for family bonding, but also the time to eat delicious Thanksgiving meals. From the classic Thanksgiving turkey to the humble cranberry sauce, there are numerous dishes to choose from. However, there are a select few that are a staple on the dinner table.

Deep-fried turkey is a crisp and crunchy spin on the classic Thanksgiving turkey dish. Instead of drying out like oven-baked turkey, deep-fried turkey keeps its moisture because it is fried. While this recipe is advanced, taking about ten hours to prepare, it will be worth it in the end.
