bacon_turkeyGreat Preference Given To Dishes Featuring Bacon and Jack, Super Foods!

It’s that time of year again! Pull up a log and sit a spell. We have snacks and drinks, a warm, toasty fire and fine friends gathered round. In two weeks we will celebrate our  wonderful American holiday, Thanksgiving. I know that it is a great favorite for almost all of us, and perhaps your family, like mine, has the best feast of the year on that day. Our family has four generations come together, sometimes forty or fifty people. We have been doing this for years, and we never even discuss the menu any more, haven’t for probably twenty years or more. We each bring two or three dishes that we do best, and it is the best meal of the year. We even have the specialties of loved ones long gone, recipes saved and lovingly prepared by granddaughters and even great granddaughters, and a few of the guys too! Although they sure do shirk cleanup!

However, it  makes a holiday special, that wonderful combination of old and new. In honor of that, here’s my new find for you guys. I cant wait to try it myself.

From Oasis in a Gastronomic Wasteland Blogspot I bring you Uncle Jack’s Whiskey Brined Turkey.

Brought to you (again) this year by popular demand. Mine.

    Here’s my annual recommendation to try spatchcocking your bird this year. This is a technique that allows all the meat to cook uniformly so that the white meat and dark meat are done at the same time. No more dried breast meat, and possibly the most moist bird you will ever taste. It works well with both brined and unbrined poultry. (I brine mine.)

    The biggest bonus: COOKING TIME IS CUT NEARLY IN HALF THIS WAY. You can sleep in.

    I’m showing the raw bird below to make the point that a sptachcocked bird can be cooked in a variety of ways: on the grill, roasted in the oven, or even deep fried. If you are interested, directions and tips are all over the web.

      But can you put it back together again to bring to the table?
      My son-in-law, at five, wearing his kindergarten Indian costume to dinner, had a little
      meltdown, because the Butterball breast his mom cooked wasn’t a “real turkey”.

      • Niagara Frontier says:

        Good question and I left it out because some won’t like the answer. No, you can’t refold the bird and bring it to the table. The reason is that one needs to press down and break the breastbone for the bird to lay flat.

        So this method is not for those who want a Norman Rockwell looking bird presented at the table. From my experience, many people are now carving the birds in the kitchen, and assembling the meat on a platter before bringing it to the table.

        I left out another GOOD point: this method allows for nearly 100% of the skin to be exposed to the heat, so there’s no soggy skin on the bottom of the bird, and there’s more skin for those who love the brown crispy stuff.

          Great idea…gives me the ability to toss the bird into the smoker for a while before
          I roast it. I’ve been on the traditional roasting for so long I totally forgot about spatchcocking, thanks for the reminder.
          As for a Norman Rockwell looking bird if my guests want that they can bloody well eat over at his house.

          Niagara Frontier,
          LOVE splatch cocking. I stuff fresh sage, parsley, thyme and dried rosemary (fresh would be awesome) plus salt and pepper and lots of butter under the skin, and rub more butter on the top (butter freak here). All the herbs, skin and leftover meat make a SOUPER turkey soup base to eat and enjoy for a few days and is then so freezer friendly.

        Thanks. I didn’t see your post, I’ll look for it now.

        I tried this method many years ago and haven’t cooked a turkey another way since. I have two Thanksgivings every year (Canadian Thanksgiving in October and American Thanksgiving in November) and I have fans on both sides of the border.

        You can let your imagination run wild with flavorings and seasonings. It’s very flexible and is very easy on the cook. The most difficult part is removing the backbone. That’s best accomplished by investing in a very sturdy pair of heavy-duty kitchen shears capable of cutting through bone.

    Oyster Dressing:

    2 bags of Pepperidge Farm stuffing bread cubes prepared per directions on bag in a very large mixing bowl – except add the following before the chicken broth and melted butter:

    1 large onion diced
    4 or 5 sticks celery diced

    Saute onions and celery in butter and pour into the DRY mix

    Wash 2 pints of oysters (I usually pour them into a sieve, drain and rinse), then using scissors, cut them into pieces into the dry mix.

    Add the liquids and mix well. I also sometimes add some chopped fresh thyme, rosemary, sage if the stuffing mix is not pre-seasoned.

    Butter a large baking pan (this makes enough for an additional small pan of dressing to send home with guests) and pour in the mixture. Dot a few cubes of butter in the corners (so you get a nice crunchy portion).

    Bake at 375F for about 45 mins to an hour.

    You could also sprinkle some bacon on this to make it perfect 😀

    Spaetzle, must have spaetzle. Great with the bird and gravy, leftovers can be casseroled with other leftovers and bound with cheese…or you can mix the leftover spaetzle (if there is any) with cheese and fry them sorta like left over grits.

      I am going to jump in here and agree to this, bigly as SD says. czar gave me a recipe for cooking spaetzle in broth, which he needs to repeat here. It’s the biggest hit here in some time.

      So far I have served it with a beef topping with carrots, onions, and celery, just the noodles as a side (always cooked like czar recommends) and the leftovers made into a mac n cheese type dish, also most excellent and way better than actual mac n cheese, also his tip.

      I don’t make the homemade noodles, I found some at Aldi for 1.99 a bag and I have every spare square inch of cabinet space stuffed with them because I figure they were seasonal during October.

    This is my favorite Holiday because we are the only country in the world that has it. It is uniquely American- being thankful for our country. It’s amazing how many metamorphoses of Turkey prep that have come from this holiday over the years. I find that fascinating as people share their inventions. Grilled, Roasted, Smoked (my fav) Fried, injections, stuffings and best of all, leftover recipes. I will stick with the basic slice of turkey, mayo, salt, pepper on a hearty white bread. The day after is often just as much fun. (Who ate all the dressing in the middle of the night!)

You can make this ahead and return to freezer. You can also add more Jack but too much and the ice cream will not harden again. Cheers!

    Candied Walnuts
    (the men love these, at least 4 generations, or more, Mom’s side)
    You’ll need a candy thermometer (unless you know how to do that the old fashioned way- make sure thermometer is NOT touching the bottom of the pan)
    [ NOTE* Candy making is DANGEROUS! ABSOLUTELY NO CHILDREN OR PETS IN THE KITCHEN! Back burners only. Pot handles turned to the back of the stove. Sorry, it’s the mother hen in me.]
    Ingredients: 2 C walnut halves and pieces (heat in the oven until crisp & snappy (not chewy or soft)
    1 C water, 1 C sugar, ½ t salt, 1-3 t cinnamon, 1t vanilla extract (or whole bean)

    In a 4 qt sauce pan:
    1C water
    1 C sugar
    ½ t salt (use high quality salt ALWAYS! It makes ALL the difference. Hawaiian sea salt is my favorite)
    1-3 t cinnamon depending on how spicy you like it. Start with 2
    Stir just ‘til dissolved on medium high heat
    Don’t stir and stay near the stove as it comes to 237 degrees F (soft ball)
    Remove from heat
    Add vanilla
    Pour warm walnuts into syrup and stir with a wooden spoon
    As it gets stiff, turn out onto waxed paper. Separate with 2 forks as they cool
    It is not recommended to double the batch, but you can make successive batches without washing the sauce pan in between.
    Enjoy!

  14. Compared to everyone else’s, this is so unexciting I’m kind of embarrassed to post it. But the older I get, all I really want to eat is the plain old Texas-Southern cooking I grew up on in the Depression/WW2 years: grits, collard & turnip greens, blackeyed peas, cornbread dressing

    The dressing (we used to call it stuffing because we stuffed the bird, but mainly because that was never enough for my big family I’ve for years baked it separately) is hands-down my favorite part of the meal. And it has to be my mother & grandmother’s basic cornbread/onion/celery/sage, moistened with turkey drippings if possible, else with butter and broth.

    ……………………………………….
    • 6 cups crumbled cornbread
    • 3 cups soft bread crumbs
    • 4 oz (1/2 stick) butter (I use only unsalted for cooking)
    • 2 cups onion, chopped
    • 2 cups finely chopped celery
    • 3 to 4 cups chicken broth
    • 2 cups chicken, diced, optional [See Note 2]
    • Good fragrant rubbed sage to taste. I use 1 ½- 2 Tbsps. [See Note 3]
    • S&P to taste (won’t need much salt, but plenty of fresh-ground black pepper)
    • (Opt.: 2 eggs, lightly beaten. Much debate here, but I think it gives better texture & cohesion.)

    *Heat oven to 350-375 F. Butter a 9×13″ baking pan/dish.
    *In a large mixing bowl, combine the crumbled breads.
    *In a deep skillet over medium heat, saute the onion and celery in the butter until tender. Don’t brown.
    *Combine the sautéed vegetables and butter with the bread mixture. Stir in chicken broth. (My rule of thumb is to add enough so that when you loosely clasp a fistful, it doesn’t crumble or fall apart when you unclasp your hand.) Stir in the chicken or turkey meat and the seasonings. Before adding the eggs, taste and adjust seasonings. Add eggs and combine well.
    * Spread evenly in the prepared baker. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and cook for about 20 minutes longer till lightly browned.

    NOTES:
    1) Any simple NON-SWEET cornbread recipe. Just use the best, freshest corn meal possible. Make a day ahead and break it up coarsely so it will dry out a bit and absorb the seasonings better. I break it up on a big baking sheet and dry in my convection oven on 150 degrees for 30-45 minutes. (The day before the meal I mix the breads, sage, and sauteed aromatics together and store in a big bag in the fridge so the flavors will meld.)

    2) You can always, this time of year, find (at Walmart, at least) meaty fresh turkey necks. Neck meat is moist & delicious. A day or two before T’giving I simmer them (you’ll need a big braising pan – they’re BIG) in lightly-salted water with chopped onion, carrot, celery leaves, peppercorns – however you make your chicken stock, till the meat is falling off the bones. Cool and pull meat off, refrigerate till needed to shred or chop and add to the dressing. Strain and refrigerate the broth for the dressing & gravy.

    [Speaking of gravy: did you see that (People Mag., think it was) poll a few years ago, asking what everyone’s favorite item on the T’giving menu is? It was no contest: GRAVY got 72% first-place votes; more than all the other choices combined!]

    If you’re lucky you’ll have wonderful rich turkey drippings, but so many people are smoking & deep-frying their turkeys, so many turkeys just don’t yield much drippings, that most of us have to do with packaged or homemade broth.

    And the pitiful little bag of giblets stuffed in the turkey isn’t enough to do squat. If you want giblet gravy, get a pkg. of chicken hearts &/or gizzards (Walmart has them), simmer till tender (which takes FOREVER) as you did the turkey necks, chop or process coarsely, reserve along with the broth. Hard-cook 2-3 eggs to slice as garnish for the finished gravy.

    3) If you like (I don’t; I love the flavor of unadulterated sage), you can use poultry seasoning or a mix of sage/thyme/marjoram/rosemary…)
    …………
    Makes dressing and gravy so good & protein-y you don’t really have to cook a turkey; all you need is a big bowl of homemade whole-berry cranberry sauce made w/a big spoonful of OJ concentrate.

On occasion, years ago, Mother would add diced hard-boiled eggs to the dressing, if she had too many eggs on hand, after making ‘deviled’-eggs. (NOTE: She didn’t make ‘deviled’ eggs with deviled ham. She had her own recipe(s) for the yolks!) They were yummy, also! Simple and tasty.

              HMHardcastle, if you are still not sure if you want to add green chili to ALL of your dressing, just set aside enough dressing to fill a small casserole dish and add the green chili, (to your taste) and bake separately. As to how much chili to add, for me it depends on how hot the chili is, and exactly how much ‘chili flavor’ you want, or like. And, my family likes a lot of chili. I use frozen chili, thawed, so there is always some ‘juice’/liquid that gets added in. For me, it is just add and taste, add and taste until I am satisfied with the flavor.
              Hope this helps! You will love it, guaranteed!

    PEAR, SAGE AND SAUSAGE STUFFING

    A hearty, chewy, moist but also a little crispy, sweet and flavorful Pear, Sage and Sausage
    Stuffing/dressing, PERFECT for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any roast dinner!

    BREAD CUBES
    14 oz bread loaf cubed, which yields 10 oz of toasted bread cubes
    Drizzle of oil
    1 tsp salt
    STUFFING
    1 lb good quality fennel pork sausages casings removed
    A handful of roughly chopped parsley
    20 sage leaves chopped
    1 medium sweet onion sliced
    5 bartlett pears cut into cubes (about 1.5 cm)
    2 leeks (not the dark green leaves) sliced, washed and drained
    5 garlic cloves minced
    3/4 cup good quality chicken stock you may need more depending on how much your bread would require in order to soften
    Ground black pepper
    INSTRUCTIONS

    TOASTING BREAD
    Cut the 14 oz bread loaf (French or Italian bread) into big cubes (about 1.5 inch each). Place these cubes on a baking tray and drizzle them with some oil and salt and bake in the oven until they are dry and turn light golden – time depends on the loaf of bread, mine took about 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.

    STUFFING
    Preheat oven to 300°F.
    Saute the onions and garlic with 2 tablespoons of butter or oil in a large pan. When the onion turns translucent, add the pork sausage meat and break it into chunky pieces. Saute and mix for a few seconds and then add the sage and leeks. Cook until the leeks soften.

    Add the pears, salt and black pepper to taste and mix well. Remove from the heat, as you don’t want the pears to soften too much.

    Add the bread cubes and parsley, and toss to combine with the rest of the stuffing. Pour the chicken stock over the bread until most of the bread cubes have softened (but not soggy).

    Butter a baking dish, and transfer the stuffing mix to the dish. Bake for about 40 minutes. First 20 minutes covered with foil, last 20 minutes uncovered.
    Serve with Roast Turkey or Chicken and with some extra parsley and sage sprinkled on top.

    My sweet potato casserole secret is to substitute the vanilla extract with spiced rum (Cap’n Meyers). I discovered this trick by happy accident.

    Favorite meal after Thanksgiving… Turkey sammich on white bread with mayo, black pepper and canned whole berry cranberry sauce. A scoop of leftover dressing makes it even better.

    Best recipe for leftover turkey (make it with chicken all the time as it is a family favorite and just too easy):

    Chicken and Dumpling Casserole
    3-4 cups of leftover turkey / chicken
    4T Butter

    1 cup of milk
    1 cup flour
    1 1/4 tsp baking powder and salt

    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 can chicken/turkey broth

    Preheat oven to 400. Put butter in 9×13 baking dish and stick in the oven while it preheats. Chop chicken / turkey into bite sized chunks. Make batter by mixing milk, flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Take hot pan with melted butter out of the oven swirl the butter. Add chopped chicken/turkey. Pour batter over chicken. Don’t stir. Mix soup and broth in same bowl used for batter, pour over top of batter. Don’t stir. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until golden brown and bubbly.

    I watched that guy on Food Wishes make Pig in a Pumpkin. Just search using that name. He said to use a basketball sized pie/sugar pumpkin, but I could only find one much smaller so I just bought a tenderloin and cut it into about 2 inch chunks. But when it came time to put the meat and the seasonings he recommends into the pumpkin all I could think was maple syrup and pecans along with the hard apple cider – and that is what I did. It was so good, even the pumpkin itself, no one could believe it – I have made up some pretty challenging (for the eaters) recipes so they were relieved, God bless their loyal little hearts. When I tasted it I thought it just called out for ginger.

    I have decided that a pie pumpkin is really a organic slow cooker and I want to make something wonderful in it for Thanksgiving. I could put teriyaki pork, but I would rather have a dessert or vegetable dish. But what? Does anyone have an idea?

I once made a grain free “dressing” where I roasted all the cubed winter root veggies I could think of and tossed them in butter and poultry seasoning with a little stock tasted pretty darned good for bread free dressing.

    Awesome sounding recipe for brussel sprouts. This is from a very new AIP friendly website. The turkey, corn muffins and pumpkin desert recipes also sound awesome. Enjoy.
