How To Spatchcock A Turkey
Remove the innards and any plastic tags that may be in the turkey.
1
The innards are the neck & giblets, & may be on either end of the bird. Save them for broth!
2
Use poultry shears to cut just to the side of the backbone. Your shears will need to be very sharp!
3
Cut on the other side of the backbone and remove it from the bird. Put it with the other scraps.
4
Take a sharp knife and make a cut between the breasts (in the cartilage). This will help it lay flat
5
Turn the bird over and use both hands to press firmly on the bird to flatten it out.
