Turkey is a holiday favorite, of course, and typically comes slathered in butter to keep the meat juicy and make the skin crisp. But you don’t need butter to enjoy this delicious bird. Instead of 2 cups of butter, cook this beast with 1 1/2 cups of olive oil. Season it with your favorite fresh herbs when cooking, and you’ll be ready to go!
Surprise! This classic butter-laden dish doesn’t actually need all that butter to taste good. Whether you’re mashing white potatoes, sweet potatoes, or boniatos, try using just 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of olive oil instead of 1/2 cup of butter. Our other litle secret to enhance the flavor? Beat in a raw egg, it adds some protein and an incredible creaminess.
