Turkey is known as a very lean meat  unless you eat it the way Honey Boo Boo's family does.

TLC aired the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Thanksgiving special on January 13, and viewers got a glimpse at just how much the family likes butter on their turkey.

Honey Boo Boo's mama June coated the bird with a gallon (!) of butter before popping it in the oven. She also prepared 15 cans of vegetables and a whopping 12 cans of cranberry sauce.

“Cranberry jelly is the most perfect food. It’s just the perfect color,” Honey Boo Boo explains. “Can-shape food is the most perfect food for eating. This is the food of the gods.”

And June sees another reason to enjoy cranberry sauce during the holidays. "They get their fruit, plus they don’t get a [urinary tract] infection,” she points out.

See, you can watch Honey Boo Boo and get the same medical expertise you would have gotten from six years of medical school. Talk about a win-win!

The Honey Boo Boo Christmas special airs on TLC on February 17. We can't wait to see how much butter June puts on the family's ham.
