Even though it presented its challenges (like our thermometer broke), I think we made the best turkey I have every had. The bacon locked in flavor and it made it juicy and falling off the bone. It was absolute perfection.

I started out with the desire to bake them. I put them in the oven at 350 for Continue reading “Bacon Wrapped Steaks”
