The Best Way to Reheat Thanksgiving Turkey

How to Reheat Your Turkey So It Doesn't Suck

Anyone who has ever reheated chicken or turkey knows it's all too common to end up with rubbery meat. That's why I consulted with the Butterball Talk-Line to learn once and for all the best way to reheat the meat. Here's their advice:

To reheat in a microwave: Spoon gravy or broth over the turkey. Cover with wax paper and heat at 30-50 percent power until warm. This method is best for individual portions.

To reheat in the oven: Preheat oven to 350°F. Lay turkey out on a roasting pan and sprinkle with broth. Bake for 30-45 minutes until turkey is heated through (Butterball recommends it reaching an internal temperature of 140°F). This method is best for reheating a large portion for a crowd.
