THANKSGIVING FAVORITES – DISHES TO CREATE FOR YOUR FAMILY DINNER

Here we are in November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  If you haven’t planned your complete Thanksgiving Dinner Menu yet here are some suggestions.  For the Stuffing, your Side Dishes, Desserts and leftovers for the days following Thanksgiving.

 

 

 

Thanksgiving is on the horizon and many families will be busy preparing food and enjoying it with their loved ones.  If you love to cook and even if you don’t but are going to be cooking listed below are the links to some delicious recipes that you may enjoy for your Thanksgiving Meal.  Take a look at them and then try out one or two or three or all.  When you do, please let me know how you, your family and friends enjoyed them.

 

 

 

CURRIED FRUIT STUFFING – a little different twist on Thanksgiving Stuffing – the Curry and Fruit give your stuffing additional flavor in a delicious way.  This recipe uses Traditional Stuffing Ingredients with the addition of Apple, Apricots and Golden Raisins or whatever you wish to use plus Curry Powder.  It is delicious and quite tasty with the addition of the fruit.

  

Juilienned Apples

GOLDEN SQUASH JUBILEE – is a simple Vegetable Dish made with only 4 ingredients:

2 lbs. Banana Squash – shredded

1 cup dried Apricots – chopped

½ Cup firmly packed Brown Sugar

¼ cup Butter

 

This dish can be cooked in the Microwave or baked in the Oven.

 

CREAMED SPINACH  –  Spinach is one of my favorite Vegetables and this version is delicious, even for non-Spinach lovers.  It is also versatile and can be turned into a Creamed Spinach Soup just by adding some Vegetable Stock and a little more Cream or Milk.  A great recipe for Thanksgiving and the days beyond.

MASHED POTATOES – be sure to use Russet Potatoes, the baking variety. (you need to use a Potato that will crumble when baked so that they will mash easily)  DO NOT USE WAXY POTATOES as they will not mash properly.

TURKEY FRITTATA – this is a great dish to use with most any kind of leftover – it is an omelet made with Onions, Potatoes, Tomatoes and Cheese as well as the leftover Turkey.  A Frittata is good for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.

 

 

TURKEY CROQUETTES – these are made with leftover Turkey, Onions and a smattering of other Vegetables – they are breaded and then fried and served with Remoulade Sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

TURKEY POT PIE – made with leftover Turkey, Vegetables and a Rough Puff Pastry or purchased Puff Pastry if you prefer.  Great for leftover Turkey, Chicken or whatever else you have.  Serve with a Salad and you have a complete meal.

OVER THE TOP HALLOWEEN SPOOKY BROWNIES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a recipe that is fun to make and delicious to eat and is good for any time of the year – especially for all Chocolate Lovers.  This is a multi-layered Brownie that is composed of a layer of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, a layer of Oreos, a layer of Fudge Brownies and interspersed with Caramel Corn and Mini-Marshmallows.  When I made this recipe I used Oreo Thins but soon found out that the White ‘Stuff’ Icing in the middle wasn’t thick enough to show up in the ‘Over the Top Brownies’ when they were cut so we switched to Double Stuff Brownies.

 

Here is what you will need to make this delectable Chocolate Treat:

1 batch of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

16 Double Stuff Oreos

1 Batch of Fudge Brownies

Caramel Corn*

Mini-Marshmallows*

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

  1. Make your Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and spread on the bottom of a greased  9 x 9 x 2 Inch Baking Pan.  (Deeper is fine too)

 

Chocolate-Chip-Cookie Dough-in-Pan

 

 

2.  Layer the Oreos evenly over the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Oreos Added

 

 

3.  Scatter some Candy Corn over the Cookies.  (optional)

 

 

 

Candy Corn on top of Oreos

 

 

4.  Next make the Fudge Brownie Batter and spread over the Oreos.

5.  The photo above shows the Mini-Marshmallows scattered over the Brownie Batter.  Before I baked it I had a change of heart and mixed the Marshmallows into the Brownie mixture so they wouldn’t burn.  My student who made this same recipe with me on Saturday decided to put the Candy Corn and the Marshmallows on top during the last 5 minutes of baking.  While this gives a nice browned Marshmallow finish, she did not scatter the marshmallows over the whole dish.  Doing so would have given the whole thing a much nicer appearance.

One quick and easy baked good for the week of Halloween is Pumpkin Cookies.  These are a drop cookie and easy to whip up, bake and serve.  All you need in addition to the usual baking ingredients is a small can of pumpkin.   Anyone who can read, follow safety procedures and be able to reach the counter can easily make these cookies.

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup Pumpkin Puree                                  1 cup Butter, softened

3 cups All-Purpose Flour                             2 cups Brown Sugar

1 tsp. Salt                                                    ½ tbsp. Vanilla

2 tsps. Baking Powder                                 2 Eggs

1 tsp. ground Cinnamon

¼ tsp. ground Cloves                                  1 cup Seedless Raisins (optional)

¼ tsp. ground Ginger

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Adjust the oven racks to the 2nd and 4th positions and preheat to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine the Flour, Salt, Baking Powder, Cinnamon and Cloves in a medium size bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream the Butter with the Brown Sugar.
  4. Beat in the Vanilla and Eggs until very well mixed.
  5. Add the Flour mixture and mix thoroughly.
  6. Stir in the Pumpkin Puree and the Raisins.
  7. Drop by the tablespoon (or use a # 60 food scoop) to shape the Cookies.
  8. Place them on a greased cookie sheet, approximately 2 inches apart.
  9. Bake the Cookies for 20-25 minutes or until a deep golden brown.
  10. When the Cookies are done, place the pans on cooling racks; when the Cookies are cool, use a spatula to remove them from the pan.
  11. Store in an airtight container.

MAKING STOCK

It is now that time of year when many of us have a Turkey Carcass left from the Family Holiday Dinners. What do we do with this?

  1.  We throw it away.
  2. We try to take off as much of the meat that is sticking to the bones
  3. We make Stock out of it which we can use for Soup, Stews or Gravy.
  4. Take that carcass and put it into your largest pot along with an Onion (with the peel on), Some freshly washed Carrots, (unpeeled) and the top of a (washed) Celery Stalk which usually has plenty of leaves on it.  Put that leafy Celery along with a couple of stalks which have also been washed and cut up.
  5. Add some herbs such as Parsley, fresh Bail and Oregano and whatever else you like.
  6. Cover everything with Cold Water up to within a couple of inches of the top of the pot.
  7. Set on a medium/high flame until the liquid starts simmering, then turn down the flame to low.
  8. Allow this mixture to simmer all day or until you have the desired strength of flavor that you want.
  9. Once the cooking period over, move the pot to a cold burner and allow it to cool until you feel that you can handle it safely.  Place a large Colander over a large Vessel (large pot or huge bowl and pour the cooked stock through the Colander into the Vessel.
  10. Use the finished stock for Soup right away or pour into smaller containers and freeze until you are ready to use.  This stock will be great for Soups, Stews or Poultry Gravy.

I usually use the stock to make a superb Vegetable Soup which is great for Cold Weather Dining.  Your needs and taste buds will direct to use this Stock for your own special purposes.

 

When I was teaching Foods Classes in High School, the students didn’t mind stripping off the meat from the carcass which we then used to make Turkey Ala King or Turkey Salad or Mac and Cheese with Turkey.  Stripping off the meat takes a little bit of patience which probably most of us don’t have but if you have a couple of Kids around (over the age of 10) who wouldn’t doing it you can stretch that turkey even further you could have imaged.

 

Sorry there is no photo here – for some reason I was not able to post a new one.  Will render the situation as soon as possible.

GINGERBREAD WAFFLES – A Culinary Makeover

 

Baking is one of my favorite things to do and during the Winter Holidays I make Gingerbread Houses and I teach other people how to make Gingerbread.  This past December, in addition to my classes I baked and built four different houses.  One for the Cancer Support Community’s Holiday Boutique, one for a sample for my class, one for home and one as a gift.  There are two ways to bake the houses – one is to cut out the pieces from the unbaked dough and the other is to bake the dough first before cutting out the pieces.  The advantage of the second method is that the pieces will all fit together without additional trimming after the baking process.  The disadvantage is that there are going to be a lot of sections of cookie that will not be big enough for any house, except for the chimney and how many of those do you need?  Now we do love to eat the leftovers but when there are a lot of leftovers, you can only so much.

 

As I said, Baking is one of my favorite things to do, but another one of my favorite culinary activities is to turn leftovers into new products and that is what I did with the leftover Gingerbread pieces.  I pulverized them to a fine crumb in my Food Processor and turned them into a Waffle Batter.  If you like Gingerbread, then you certainly will like Gingerbread Waffles.  Here is how I did it.

 

  • Break up the leftover Gingerbread pieces into sections that will fit in your Food Processor that has been fitted with the Chopping Blade.  Use the Pulse Button to break up the pieces into small pieces and then turn it on to finely chop the Gingerbread pieces.  You should end up with a medium to fine crumb.
  • Measure the Crumbs – 2 cups of Gingerbread Crumbs will make enough waffles for 3-4 people.

 

Gingerbread Crumbs

          Gingerbread Crumbs

  • Use your Food Processor (do not wash out the bowl) or a large mixing bowl.  Beat 3 Eggs until well mixed and then add 1 1/2 cups Buttermilk and blend together.
  • Combine the Gingerbread Crumbs with 1 1/2 cups of All-Purpose Flour, 1 tsp. Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger and 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda.  Add to the Buttermilk/Egg mixture and Pulse, just until mixed.  If doing in a bowl, with a whisk, just mix until the Ingredients are blended – DO NOT OVER-MIX!  (Over-mixing Waffle, Pancake or Muffin Batter will make the product tough.
  • Stir in 1/4 cup Melted Butter.
Gingerbread Waffle Batter

        Gingerbread Waffle Batter

 

  • Heat your Waffle Iron until the indicator light tells you the Iron is hot.  If necessary, lightly oil or spray the surface of the Iron.
  • Pour approximately 1/2 cup of Batter on each section of you Waffle Irons Grids (this will vary, depending on the size and shape of our Waffle Iron)

 

Batter on Grids

              Batter on Grids

  • Close and Bake until the steaming stops.  Keep the baked Waffles warm in a low oven until you are ready to serve them.
Baked Waffles

             Baked Waffles

  • Serve with Fruit Compote and or Maple Syrup and melted Butter.  The Waffles in the Feature Photo are served with crisply cooked bacon.
  • For the Fruit Compote,I melted about 2 Tbsps. of Butter along with Brown Sugar (2-4 Tbsps.).  I then added pitted and halved Cherries, Blackberries and fresh Pineapple pieces.  This will work with just about any fruit – Apples are great with Gingerbread as well as Bananas, Mango or Papaya.

And this is how you use leftover Gingerbread to make Waffles!  As a convenience, I have also listed the ingredients below.

 

2 CUPS Gingerbread Crumbs

1 1/2 cups Flour

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground Ginger

1/2 tsp. Baking Soda

3 Eggs

1 1/2 cups Buttermilk

1/4 cup melted Butter

ROASTING YOUR TURKEY

 

 Below are the directions for the common method of roasting your turkey.  Following is the overnight method.  I have done the overnight method for over 20 years and the turkey comes out juicy, tender and delicious.  An added benefit is that you don’t have to rush to get the turkey in the oven on Thanksgiving morning.  One note though,  this method is good if you are going to have an early dinner, say by 3 PM.  If your Thanksgiving Dinner is going to be in the evening, then follow the traditional method.

 

Also, most recipes will tell you to roast the turkey with the breast side up – if you do this whatever fat and juices (and there won’t be much) will drip down to the bottom of the bird and into the pan.  If you roast your turkey, breast side down, the juices from the dark meat (and there will be plenty) will drip into the breast.  Just turn it over 1 hour before completion to brown the skin.

  1. Remove giblets and wash turkey inside and out.
  2. Rub with Olive Oil or Butter and a combination of sage, white pepper and paprika (garlic optional), inside and out.
  3. Stuff if desired. Close the openings to keep stuffing from falling out.
  4. Truss turkey by tying together the legs and wings.
  5. Place on roasting rack in pan, breast side down.
  6. Roast at 325 degrees according to the time table on package.
  7. One hour before it should be done, remove from the oven and turn the turkey over, breast side up.
  8. Return to oven and continue roasting until the breast is brown and the turkey is done. (175 degrees on meat thermometer)
  9. Allow to sit at least half hour before carving. (This will set the juices)

 

OVERNIGHT METHOD

 

  1. Follow directions 1 through 5 above.
  2. Place in oven set to 200 degrees just before going to bed. (Preferably, not before midnight.
  3. About 1 ½ hours before serving time, increase the oven temperature to 350 degrees and follow steps 7 through 9 above.

TURKEY DRESSING

 

Mrs. Cubbison’s Stuffing Mix

Sauté all or some of the following in ¼ lb. Butter:

 

Diced Onion  (at least one)

Several ribs of celery, diced

Sliced Mushrooms

 

You can also add a peeled and chopped apple, a little curry powder (about 3 Tbsps.), raisins or nuts and a couple of beaten eggs.

 

Do not add any liquid as the dressing will absorb moisture from the vegetables and the turkey.

 

DO NOT PUT THE STUFFING IN THE TURKEY until you are just ready to cook it.

REMOVE ALL THE DRESSING FROM THE TURKEY AFTER IT IS ROASTED.  (If the dressing is left in the turkey, food poisoning can result)

SAFE HANDLING OF POULTRY  

 

 Since Thanksgiving is almost here, most people are probably already purchasing their turkeys and storing them until the big dinner.  Here are some guidelines to help you prepare a safe Thanksgiving Meal.

 

  1. Wash your hands before and after handling raw Turkey.

 

  1. Keep raw turkey wrapped and separate from other foods to eliminate the possibility of cross contamination.

 

  1. Don’t return cooked turkey, or any food, to a plate or container that held raw turkey.

 

  1. When finished preparing turkey, clean all working surfaces with a solution of one part bleach to four parts water. Leave solution on surfaces for 5 seconds before rinsing well with cold water.

 

  1. Cook turkey until juices run clear when the meat is pierced with a fork.

 

  1. Cook turkey at 325ºF  until the internal temperature of the  thigh shows  185ºF on a meat thermometer.  The dark meat takes longer to cook than the white meat.

 

  1. Never leave cooked or raw turkey at room temperature for more than one hour. Refrigerate it promptly because bacteria that can make you sick grow quickly at room temperatures!

 

Note:  These guidelines apply to all poultry products
