Going around on Facebook there's a prank people are pulling on their mothers for Thanksgiving asking them how long to cook their turkeys in the microwave. While it might sound ridiculous there are actually many ways this can be done. Yes, you can cook your turkey in the microwave.

The easiest way to cook your turkey in a microwave is simply steaming it by cooking it in a sealed plastic bag. You cook the turkey at 50% power for 10 mins per pound after of course seasoning it to your liking. You'll need to make sure the inside of your bird reaches 165'F to make it safe to eat.

Even the Food Network has a microwave cooking recipe with your turkey that includes skin cracklings and it looks pretty delicious.

If you really want to freak out your mom this Thanksgiving offer to cook your turkey and do it using the microwave.
