Roast Turkeys With Rich Pan Gravy Recipe - Over the years, I've developed a first-rate, do-ahead menu. Here's how: I roast two small turkeys instead of one big one. We all like the idea of someone carving the turkey at the table, but here's the reality: Most people don't know how. You're gonna get turkey juices all over that nice white tablecloth, while the side dishes turn tepid. So carve one in the kitchen and use the second one for display. The second turkey is strictly for show, seconds and leftovers. Recipe of the Day
