2010 Thanksgiving Menu

Turkey:  Brined in PW Favorite Brine
Balsamic Green Beans
PW's Cornbread Sausage Stuffing(minus the apples)
Mashed Potatoes with Cream Cheese
Pretzel Jello Salad with Blackberries
Jannet's Rolls
Homemade Orange Cranberry Sauce

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake
Bobby Flay's Pumpkin Bread Pudding(added white chocolate chips to mine)

Turkey:  Brined for less time because it is injected with a solution, just overnight.  Rinse again, season inside cavities.  Put neck in bottom of pan with 1 onion wedged into 8 slices.  Cover bottom of pan 1/2".  Cooked upside down on rack for one hour at 375.  Flip over for remaining time, truss and cover with melted herb butter(fresh parsley, rosemary, kosher salt, black pepper, white pepper, and French Thyme).  Add a foil tent and reduce heat to 325' for 3-4 hours.  Remove foil tent last hour or remove tent and turn on broiler for a few minutes to brown up the top of turkey.

Potatoes:  Added 1 whole cube of cream cheese, 1 stick of butter, milk, salt & pepper to taste.

Stuffing:  Used PW's recipe ingredients, minus the apple.

Rolls:  Doubled Jannet's recipe.  Makes 64 rolls!  Divide dough between 4 9x9 baking pans.  Before baking, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with kosher salt.  Bake 15-20 minutes.
