Maple syrup and crushed pineapple are the secret ingredients for this classic Thanksgiving casserole! Yum! To make this ahead, assemble the casserole up to 1 day in advance and refrigerate. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
Some people just want to cook turkey breast instead of an entire turkey. Juicy bacon does double duty in this Thanksgiving showstopper by keeping the lean turkey meat nice and moist and delivering a crispy outer layer. If you’re using store bought gravy, you might want to stir in chopped herbs like parsley or chives, or add a squeeze of lemon juice and some grated zest for a hit of fresh flavor.
Let guests serve themselves with a pitcher of this simple, make-ahead cocktail. For a holiday twist, garnish with fresh cranberries and orange slices. Try using a fruity Spanish rioja for the most traditional taste.
This herb roasted turkey is cooked with apples and shallots, that are cooked inside the turkey, to keep the meat moist and adds a rich flavor. The extra shallots in the roasting pan also give the gravy recipe a rich, caramelized onion depth and, with apple cider, the gravy is so delicious. The easy turkey stock adds extra flavor to the gravy.
Apple is the secret ingredient to any wow-worthy stuffing. This gluten free take on the classic side dish will be an instant Thanksgiving hit.
Pumpkin Pie is the iconic Thanksgiving dessert, but how often do you make it from scratch? The easiest way to elevate the flavor of your pumpkin pie is to make the purée from a real pumpkin (sugar pumpkin). All you need is a bit of extra prep time. Begin by cutting the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds. Then lay the pumpkin cut side down on a baking tray line with parchment paper. Bake the pumpkin for about an hour, until it is tender and can easily be cut into. Once the pumpkin is out of the oven, let it cook for a few minutes then scoop out the flesh and blend it in a food processor until nice and smooth.
It’s time to make Gingerbread Pancakes as we head into the holidays. These pancakes are delicious and hearty. If you would like to make them dairy free, then just replace the milk with dairy free milk and the butter with oil.
I like to make Pumpkin Cheesecake because it is a nice alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie.
These potatoes are extremely popular on my holiday table. You may peel the potatoes the day before and cover them with cold water and refrigerate until you’re ready to cook them. I highly recommend you use a potato ricer for these potatoes to get the creamiest potatoes.
Because many people are having to stay home this holiday season they find themselves cooking their own holiday dinner. Lately, I’ve been asked questions on how to cook a turkey. While there are a number of variations on how to prepare your holiday turkey there’s something wonderful about cooking it the classic way.
