We are starting the busy holiday season, so we wanted to give you a few recipes to make your preparations for your gourmet Thanksgiving meal a bit easier.  These simple, healthy recipes will put an elegant touch to any meal – but especially for Thanksgiving.
Let’s start with The Bird

Spatchcock Turkey

Our favorite method for turkey is using the spatchcock method – which is very similar to butterflied poultry.  We use a dry-rub marinade (suggestions:  Serious Foodie Bourbon Rub, Tex-Mex, or Harissa – click HERE to order), and bast with a flavorful marinade-type sauce (suggestions:  Serious Foodie Pomegranate Grill Sauce and Marinade, or Korean Grill Sauce for a more exotic flavor).  It is then very easy to either roast or grill – and we prefer the later.  And the method works well with chicken, also.

Turn the turkey over after 1 hour of cooking. Grill until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees (about 45 minutes more for a 20 pound turkey).

We have used, many times, a beer-based gravy which is complex and delicious – and very simple to make (click HERE to see the recipe).
If you want to use the Serious Foodie Pomegranate Sauce as the base – which would go along with a pomegranate glazed bird – click HERE .
