This year Butterball is encouraging families and friends to throwback to their favorite Thanksgiving memory by posting Thanksgiving family photos and vintage dishes on their page. Remember the Jell-O mold with vegetables inside? They are also helping me with a Butterball Turkey giveaway too!
No matter when I look back, Butterball has always been a part of your Thanksgiving – right at the center of the plate and providing the best turkey advice.
This year they’re bringing the past to the present by opening the Butterball archives to share our favorite throwback recipes, memories of Turkey Talk-Line calls, debunking cooking method myths throughout the years and more.
I actually used the Turkey Talk-Line one year when I was trying to deep fry a turkey for my family! They were right there to help me out. You can still give them a call if you prefer. Just call 1-800-BUTTERBALL during specified hours. Just visit the site for all the times you can call.
I love also that I can go to Butterball’s website to plan the perfect amount of servings needed for my meal in their perfect portion planner. Just plug in the amount of adults and kids you plan on serving into the planner. There are boxes you can check to say we want leftovers, we are big eaters, or we are light eaters. Then, it will tell you the size of turkey you need along with the amount of stuffing. So simple.
You can also put in the size of turkey and you can calculate the amount of time needed to thaw the turkey. I have already figure when I need to pull my bird into the fridge!
Butterball is also helping get 2 lucky RMK readers set for Thanksgiving with a $20 turkey certificate. I love to use Butterball turkeys. The really can be placed in the oven just with some salt and pepper and turn out amazing. However, they are even better if you want to do something a little more fancy. See the rafflecopter widget below to enter.
Plus, be sure to share your throwback Thanksgiving memories, photos or recipes, on Butterball’s Facebook or Instagram page to join the fun.
two years ago my whole family made it home for thanksgiving and we spent the day as a family.
my favorite memory was watching my g=Grandpa cover an entire plate of food with gravy every year
One year when I was probably about 8 or 9 years old we got a huge snow storm on Thanksgiving day and me and my brother and sister and my dad built a snowman that was taller than my dad who is 6’2″!
My best Thanksgiving memory is the last one with my dad and entire family!
My favorite memory is when my grandmothers teeth fell out in her mashed potatoes. We laughed all year! Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

A few years back someone accidentally covered their food in applesauce, instead of gravy. (How they confused the two, I don’t know!) It was so funny though, and we still joke about it every year.
Making the pie as a family!
My favorite Thanksgiving memory was spending it with my dad before he passed away, two months later.
My favorite memory is driving to my grandma’s house the first Thanksgiving I was married. It was so good to be with family and the food was amazing!
I enjoy having Thanksgiving at our house. I remember the first time the family came and I didn’t think I’d be able to pull it off, but everything was great! Love it!
Every thanksgiving growing up we would put up the Christmas lights on the house and put up our Christmas tree!
Grandma discovered the oven died sometime after putting the turkey. Someone decided we would all go bowling and eat burgers and fries for Thanksgiving. In the 60’s, the bowling alley was the only place that was open on holidays in our small town. The old folks bowling in their dress clothes is something I’ll never forget!
I wouldn’t say that I have one in particular, but I have fond memories of playing with my cousins as a kid, and my grandmother fussing over everyone, making sure they had enough to eat and drink 🙂
Our Thankgivings were always routine. We went to our grandmas house every year, so no one day stands out more than the other.
My favorite Thankgiving memory was when I was a little girl, and we went to my grandparents for Thanksgiving. We got a huge snowstorm, and got snowed in for days. I remember all the fun we had playing in the snow!
My very first family get together for Thanksgiving, as a new bride, had me very nervous. I’d hoped everything would be perfect and it all was, except for the giblet bag that I’d left in the turkey when I baked it. 🙂
Thanksgiving last year was very special and we’ve lost 4 family members since last Thanksgiving. Last Thanksgiving was the last time that entire family was together.
My favorite Thanksgiving memory is spending it with my grandparents eating turkey dinner and playing bingo! 🙂
Favorite memory is having my entire family over and enjoying a huge great meal and watch football
Thanksgiving with my grandparents were the best, so much good food and family, hasn’t been the same since they passed away.
Favorite memory is when we do potluck thanksgiving dinner with family and friends
The last hoilday my dad was alive
