Buffalo Fried Turkey for American Thanksgiving

Our Yankee cousins to the South are having their Thanksgiving this weekend (we won't hold it against them for being a month late or that they think their pilgrims invented the holiday and not earlier settlers to Canada).

 I won't lie, I am not a big Thanksgiving fan - boring turkey and sides and then in my family we eat the almost identical meal at X-mas. But the Americans, they are an inventive and imaginative people. They have invented some wonderful creations, and in the culinary world, their contribution of Buffalo Wings is something I can never stop saying thank you for.

Well they have done it again. Chef J. Kenji Lopez-Alt over at Serious Eats, who did an "oven fried Buffalo Wing,"  took his sights to turkey. 

Yes, he did a Buffalo Fried Turkey. And yes it is awesome.

Look at that fried crispy turkey. Look at that wonderfully red Buffalo sauce. Look at them combine in some wondrous marriage of flavour and pure awesomeness.

It brings a tear to my eye.

Happy Thanksgiving America . . . thanks for giving us . . . well, this.

Does it come with a side of blue cheese and celery dressing?

Now THIS is the way to rock up Thanksgiving dinner!

"the Americans, they are an inventive and imaginative people" - quit talking about our history books! =))
