She shared with us The Four T’s rule for any Thanksgiving cook: Thaw, Temperature, Two-Hour Rule and Three Days to Eat

Check out our interview:

Nicole's Most Memorable Call:
Johnson’s most memorable call took place during her first year on the Talk-Line. A young woman called in whispering because she didn’t want her very new in-laws, who were all in the dining room waiting for her to serve Thanksgiving dinner, to hear her on the phone. She needed Johnson’s help because she was having difficulty with the meat thermometer and did not want her new mother-in-law to know! At the time, Johnson had been a newlywed herself for less than a week, so she reassured the young woman and guided her through the proper way to insert a meat thermometer.

Favorite Thing About Turkey Talking:
“It allows me to use my own experiences to empathize with our callers when they encounter similar problems as I have. I enjoy being a turkey talker because I provide our callers with simple tips that enable them to prepare a fabulous meal!”

Favorite Throwback Holiday Recipe: 
Open-Pan Turkey with Salmon Mousse and Seasoned Gizzards

Turkey has a way of bringing people together. In fact, it’s hard to think of a Thanksgiving without it. This year, Butterball is asking family and friends to “throwback” to their favorite Thanksgiving memories and reflect on the holiday meal.
