So you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year. All your closest friends and family members are coming. Have you thought about what to prepare?
Since Thanksgiving is a time for feasting, it is a great opportunity for you to showcase the most delightful dishes that everyone can enjoy. Surprise your loved ones with the following recipes:
Seasoned Roasted Turkey
Well, Thanksgiving day will never be complete without the turkey, right? Let’s then start the list with the perfect turkey recipe!
To create your edible centerpiece, you need a turkey (about 14 lbs.), sprigs of Rosemary, olive oil, salt, celery, onions, garlic, carrots, chicken stock, your choice of stuffing, and Clementines.
After removing the giblets, stuff the cavity with Rosemary and the stuffing mixture. Tie the legs and rub a combination of oil, seasoning, and salt all over the turkey. In a large saucepan, put the turkey neck, rosemary, onions, garlic, carrots, and celery. Put the roasting rack over and then the turkey itself.
Once you are done roasting, garnish the turkey with rosemary as well as Clementines.
Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin
This one here is a perfect side dish. It is an excellent recipe that can make little kids eat their vegetables!
So how do you make it?
Butter a baking dish before putting the broccoli and cauliflower. In a separate pan, melt some butter and add flour. After a couple of minutes, pour some milk and continue stirring until the mixture gets thick. Once it has thickened, add the nutmeg, cheese, salt, and pepper, and then pour over the vegetables. Cover it with aluminum foil and bake for about 10 to 20 minutes.
Wild Rice-And-Cider-Cranberry Pilaf
In a saucepan, heat a little bit of oil and put the garlic and cinnamon. Add the rice, cider, and enough water to cook. Sprinkle some salt and pepper to season. Once it starts to boil, add the cranberries.
While waiting for the rice to cook, put one or two tablespoons of oil in a skillet. Add the onions and garlic with salt and pepper. Once they are cooked, stir in parsley and vinegar. Combine it with the rice.
Composed Waldorf Salad
This type of salad is super easy to prepare. All you have to do is mix some sour cream with mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and honey for the dressing. After which, add the lettuce and top it with apples and grapes as well as walnuts, celery, and pomegranate seeds.
Apple pie is a must-have dessert during Thanksgiving dinner.
Start with making the crust by combining flour, sugar, and salt using a food processor. Add the cheese, butter, and some water until you see that the dough is forming.
Next, divide the dough and flatten them into disks before putting them in the fridge for a couple of hours.
To make the filling, combine the apples with brown sugar, granulated sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Prepare a work surface by sprinkling a little bit of flour and then roll the bigger dough into a circle. Put it in a pie plate and refrigerate for half an hour before transferring the apples.
Roll the other dough into a smaller circle and put it over the apples. Brush the crust with egg and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar. Bake it until the crust turns golden brown.
