The abomination that is ‘glitter turkey’ ... and other weird ways to cook your bird
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It used to be that fried turkey was the unique way to prepare your Thanksgiving turkey.
For the Instagram set — or maybe just adventurous cooks — Reynolds Kitchens has come out this year with some turkey recipes that are a little ... out there.
Exhibit A: The Flamin' Hot Cheetos bird, which has gotten both lots of love and lots of hate on social media.
One popular response: "I would not eat this on a boat. I could not have this in a moat. I will not try it on a train. I will not taste it, it’s insane. It is not cute, it seems too quirky. I will not eat your Hot Cheetos Turkey.”
Another: “Do whatever makes you happy. If that’s Hot Cheetos on your turkey, go for it.”
But Reynolds wasn’t done.
They’ve also posted a recipe for “glitter turkey,” covered in edible pearl sheen or dust.
Not surprisingly, the response to glittery birds on Thanksgiving tables was also immediate — and split.
Supporters say the glitter is “extra,” haters say it’s an assault on the holiday.
