Spend Thanksgiving with Butterball ~ #TBThanksgiving #Giveaway

Thanksgiving is one of those special holidays that is all about family and friends and being thankful for everything in our lives. One thing that has been consistent on everything  Thanksgiving since I can remember, other than family, is Butterball Turkey.


As a child I remember having a great big Butterball Turkey in the middle of the table and eating the delicious meat during dinner and even afterwards for the next few days. Sometimes the leftovers were better than the actual meal. Either way, it was always amazingly good. This year, Butterball is bringing back things from years gone and opening up the Butterball Archives to share our favorite throwback recipes, memories  of Turkey Talk-Line calls, debunking cooking method myths throughout the years and more!

Butterball is also encouraging families and friends to throwback their favorite Thanksgiving memories by posting Thanksgiving family photos and vintage dish recipes on their Facebook and Instagram pages...remember the Jell-O Mold with Vegetables inside? 


If you've never used the Turkey Talk-Line, then keep in mind that the line is available for help from experts, who can offer over 30 years worth of tips, recipes and how-to-videos to assist in making your holiday worry free. Call 1-800-BUTTERBALL during specified times, chat, email or simple check the website for tons of information.

One of the best features on the Butterball website is the Calculators and Conversions Tables. This handy-dandy feature makes your time in the kitchen more efficient by helping to calculate and convert everything from the size of your turkey to how much time you'll need to thaw or cook it. It's all right there on the website to help with whatever you need.

  1. I'd say it would have to have been the first Thanksgiving I spent with my daughter. Nothing really notable happened, but just having her there to spend it with me was pretty memorable.

  5. On year we thought the dressing was baking, but apparently the oven got turned off and an hour later it was still cold as could be. We have to delay our Thanksgiving meal some and all the guests were there!

  9. I loved the rituals of preparation, the smells, the feel, and the look of the food. I would help my mom cook, and the day before I'd cut up the bread and let it sit to dry out. Then early the next morning, I'd cut up the onions and celery to saute until they were a beautiful golden brown, and I'd mix the two together along with the bread and some egg and the Bell's seasoning in a huge bowl, up to my elbows in melted butter, then stuffing the turkey and trussing it up with bakery string and poultry pins. Then, when the turkey was in the oven and filling the house with wonderful smells, I'd peel the potatoes and veggies to cook, and then help clear off the dining room table to set. I'd get out the nice tablecloth, dishes, silverware and glasses, and would devise fancy ways to fold the napkins to make the table look festive.

  14. My most memorable memory is when I was in high school and I was working my first job, a waitress at Denny's. I could not get the day off of work because it was the only place in town that was open on Thanksgiving day. To surprise me, my whole family came to eat Thanksgiving dinner so they could celebrate Thanksgiving with me. MY WHOLE family...Mom, Dad, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc... Funny thing is, I had to serve them, lol! But my boss did let me sit down with them and have my lunch :)

  51. My most memorable Thanksgiving was in 2013 when we had five generations ranging from my great grandma to my nephew. Unfortunately, my great grandma died last year right before Thanksgiving. I am just thankful that she was still with us the year my nephew was born because it was definitely a memorable and precious time.

  55. My most memorable Thanksgiving was 5 years ago. My husband was stationed in Afghanistan with the Army and even though I cooked everything I did every year, my heart was not in it as we all missed him so much. I had just taken out the turkey when there was a knock on the window. It was my husband who had been give two weeks leave and decided to surprise us!
