By Toriano Porter
Wanna-be chefs take note.
You may think you the have the ‘how-to-cook-a-turkey’ game down to a science, but Erin Simons’ first-grade class at Cedar Creek Elementary School in Lee’s Summit may just be the resident experts.
Fifteen students from the class took time to share their ideas on how to cook a Thanksgiving Day turkey, so if you’re lacking in the art of culinary skills, the following advice may just be what you need to get you through another holiday feast.
Ellyson Drake: You kill the turkey, then you take its feathers off, then you bake it, then you eat it.
Tyler Bleckinger: First you have to get a turkey, then you have to cook it, then you have to get the guts and stuff out of it and then you get to eat it.
Connor Anderson: I don’t know. Eating the turkey is my favorite part of Thanksgiving.
Tyler Anderson : Don’t cook it too high and don’t leave it in the microwave too long.
Elias Kinder: I would clean it off first, then get the skin off, then cook it.
Nathan Rhodes: I don’t really know how to cook.
Jackson Parker: First you get the turkey, then you put it in the oven, then you take it out, then you put stuff on it, then you eat it.
Cameron Zaun: You put it in the oven, then take it out and put it in a pan, and then you put it on a plate.
Tyler Niemeyer: First you put it in the oven, then you cook it for one hour, then you put seasoning on it. That’s all.
Josie Graham: First, you put it in the oven. After that you take it out, and then you put some spices on it, and then you let it cool off and stuff, and then you eat it.
Taylor Martz: Put it in the oven, then you put seasoning on it, then you let it stay in the oven for two hours, then you eat it.
Charlotte Manganaro: You make a stuffing with whatever you really want. Then you go get a turkey at the store. You put the stuffing inside the turkey, and then you cook the turkey for a little bit.
Kiraly Vega: Buy a turkey, take it home, maybe put some spices on it and then put it in the oven. Then you take it out of the oven, and then you eat it.
Kennedy Jones: Cut all of the fur off, then you cut the feathers off, then you keep him. I would keep him. Then slice it up and put it in the oven.
Livi Hearne: Put it in the oven, then get it out of the oven, then cut it, then eat it.
