How-to Carve A Turkey

No, you don’t need an engineering degree to carve a turkey. Here get simple directions to take you through the task in three easy steps.

Tips to start

  • Use a sharp carving knife for best results when carving a whole turkey.
  • While carving, keep the turkey from moving by holding it in place with a meat fork.
  • Carve on a stable cutting surface, such as a plastic cutting board or platter.
  • Carving is easier if the turkey is allowed to stand for about 15 to 30 minutes after roasting.

Step 1

  • Place the turkey breast up with its legs to the right if you're right-handed or to the left if left-handed.
  • Remove the ties or skewers.
  • While gently pulling leg and thigh away from body, cut through the joint between leg and body.
  • Separate the drumstick and thigh by cutting down through the connecting joint.
  • Serve the drumstick and thighs whole, or carve them.

Step 2

  • Make a deep horizontal cut into the breast just above the wing.
  • Insert a fork in the top of the breast.

Step 3

  • Starting halfway up the breast, carve thin slices down to the horizontal cut, working from outer edge of bird to the centre.
  • Repeat steps 1 through 3 on the other side of the turkey.
