Two Recipes for Some Thanksgiving help
Thanksgiving is right around the corner which means, if you have to cook any part of the meal, you’re scrambling for ideas, for ingredients, for menu planning, for drinks, for the whole shebang.
I’ve been there before and I’m going to be there again this year which means I’m scrambling as well.
I know a few parts of the meal ‘m going to be making already. Obviously, there’s the turkey. That’s a given. Then there’s the gravy. (Here’s the full recipe.) That’s something where the majority can be made ahead of time.
Then there’s the stuffing which I rarely stuff inside of the turkey. (I like to put a few lemons, maybe a lime, some apples, maybe an orange, in the bird’s cavity.)
I personally make a sage sausage stuffing with sourdough bread and bake it in the oven. This makes it toasty and more delicious.
There’re two options for the sage sausage. Either, make it yourself or just buy it. When it’s on sale, I buy it. When it’s not, I make it myself with fresh sage which I then dry in the oven.
There you go. Two great options.
I highly suggest you take my advice on the gravy.
