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…
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.
Check out the full article HERE on how to do spatchcocked turkey, including a video.
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 .
The Serious Foodie Peruvian Blood Orange Sauce is a great complement to most any vegetable dish, but especially butternut squash (click HERE) and roasted vegetables (click HERE).
