I became obsessed with creating the perfect pumpkin pie and made at least a half dozen variations. My testers and I agreed it was time to stop when we tasted this one with its miracle of an eggless custard filling that’s both sweet and spicy. And if you were wondering, there is absolutely no taste at all of tofu.
The cauliflower crumb crust adds welcome crunchy texture and lovely buttery-parmesan flavor (with no bread!) to creamy mashed potatoes.
This vegetarian friendly stuffing is one of the surprising highlights of a more traditional meat laden menu. It is bursting with “meaty” umami flavor courtesy of the blend of wild mushrooms used. Dry vermouth, a fortified wine flavored with various herbs and botanicals, adds an additional layer of subtle sophisticated flavor.
The combination of turkey and cranberries are obvious to anyone that has sat down for a Thanksgiving meal. But the tart tangy cranberries also work well in a bright and colorful BBQ sauce base for turkey meatballs. This crowd-pleasing appetizer is an excellent addition to any holiday buffet or party. Feel free to use fresh or frozen cranberries for this recipe. And if you can find it, try to use ground turkey thigh meat as it is more tender and juicy.
One of the biggest dilemmas in roasting a turkey is how to keep the breast from becoming dry and overcooked while making sure the thigh and legs are fully cooked. Brining ensures overall juicy meat in general while the technique of first roasting the bird upside down allows for the dark meat to get a jumpstart on the cooking. It also means the breast self-baste in the beginning with the natural juices running down over it. Turning the turkey right side up halfway through the roasting ensures a beautiful browned skin bird, ready for presentation. Don’t worry if the breast has indentations from the roasting rack once you flip it over. As it continues to cook, it will plump up.
The traditional sweet potato casserole with sticky sweet marshmallows on top is a classic favorite at Thanksgiving dinner tables. This re-imagined version brings it to a whole new level with a pecan crumble for texture as well as a sweet and fluffy brown sugar meringue piped on top. If you don’t like your sweet potato casserole candy sweet, just skip the meringue topping and bake it with the pecan crumble alone.
One of the easiest desserts to make for a crowd is apple cobbler. There’s no need to fuss with pie crust and everyone can take as big or as little a serving as they want. The addition of the pumpkin and pumpkin spice in the drop biscuit topping makes this a new Autumnal classic, perfect for those looking to serve something a little bit different for Thanksgiving dessert or just looking to make an easy comfort dish to end a Fall or Winter dinner party.
