Megyn Kelly shared why she’s no longer in charge of cooking Thanksgiving dinner for her family after making an attempt three times, with each one just short of a “complete disaster.”

In the “American News Minute with Megyn Kellynewsletter that came out on Friday, the host of “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast talked about her disastrous attempts to cook the Turkey dinner, complete with sides, that ended one time with the bird catching “on fire.”

“I have tried to cook this meal three times,” Kelly explained. “The first, I was only second-in-command so it wasn’t a complete disaster. The next time was when [I] was single – I cooked for my sister and her kids at a little townhome I moved into during my early days at Fox. I forgot to take the turkey out of the freezer until Thanksgiving Day and learned the hard way, that’s too late.”

“The final attempt was when [husband] Doug and I tried to cook for our friends Lisa and John O’Hurley in New York City,” she added. “It was an unmitigated disaster. I inadvertently left half of my bags at the grocery store … all we had was turkey and stuffing. The turkey caught on fire and wound up as dry as Clark Griswold’s in Christmas Vacation.”

“We realized as we cooked that we were missing gravy, which — given the turkey situation — we really needed,” the former Fox News host continued, noting that at this point the only store open was a drugstore, with a packaged version. “While at first it seemed like an enormous watery soup, I soon found out that if you stir and stir and stir and stir the gravy gets thicker and actually … disappears…”

Things really got hilarious when Kelly shared how some “turkey grease” ended up getting on one of their dogs, leading the other dog to begin licking “the first dog incessantly for a week,” which the first dog “did not appreciate.”

This final Turkey Day attempt ended up with smoke billowing “out of the kitchen following the oven fire, O’Hurley yelled out, ‘I’ve got Jean-Georges on speed dial!’ In the end we opted not to dine at this five-star restaurant (mistake) and our dear friends never complained about their one-star holiday meal. But that was it for me.”

At the end of the letter, the podcast host shared how this year was the family’s first Thanksgiving without her sister Suzanne. Kelly shared that even though it was hard, she and her family, complete with her mom and her sister’s kids, enjoyed spending time together, reminding her “that what comes after tragedy is usually resilience.”
