First there was baking cookies on your dashboard. Now it's roasting a turkey — on your engine on the way to Grandma's house! Of course, this requires that Grandma lives more than 5 minutes away. In fact, she would need to live about 4 hours away, and it requires at least one stop for you to flip the turkey. But the whole idea is not entirely half-baked; it comes from a book called (amazingly!) Manifold Destiny: The One! The Only! Guide to Cooking on Your Car Engine! The authors offer this recipe for "To Grandmother's House Road Turkey," a recipe which admittedly is only a turkey breast. Cooking a full turkey would indeed take quite a trip. On a certain level, of course, we think this sounds insane. But on the other hand, perhaps it's actually a great green way to cook your turkey? Think of all the electricity you save, and the gas mileage redeemed by this double-duty! • Get the recipe: "To Grandmother's House Road Turkey" at USA Today • Find the book: Manifold Destiny: The One!
