Thanksgiving is all about tradition, and if you’ve ever tried switching up the green bean casserole in a house of stalwarts, you know that breaking with tradition is a risky move. That didn’t stop the Butterball turkey line, one of Thanksgiving’s finest institutions, from switching things up this year in a big way.

For the first time ever, cooks can text the turkey hotline instead of calling. It’s 2016, and the fear of making a phone call is real.
