Beer Can Chicken with Dirty Bird Rub

 

Elizabeth Karmel

From Every Day with Rachael Ray

June-July 2007

 

FOUR SERVINGS

Prep Time: 15

Cook Time: 1 1/2 hr

 

 

 

 

 

 

1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

3/4 teaspoon pepper

3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon dried ground sage

One 4- to 5-pound chicken, rinsed and patted dry

Extra-virgin olive oil

One 12-ounce can beer, preferably Budweiser

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Build a charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill. In a small bowl, mix the dry ingredients to make the rub. Brush the chicken lightly with olive oil and season with 2 tablespoons rub. Sprinkle the remaining rub inside the cavity of the bird and set aside.

2. Open the can of beer, pour out about 1/4 cup and punch an extra hole in the top using a bottle opener with a piercing point. Carefully stand the beer can in the center of the grill over indirect medium heat and place the cavity end of the chicken over the beer can.

3. Close the grill lid and cook the chicken until an instant-read thermometer registers 165º in the breast and 180º in the thigh, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. To remove from the grill, use tongs to hold the chicken steady and slide a large spatula underneath the beer can to keep it stable. Transfer to a work surface and, using the tongs, remove and discard the beer can. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving.

 

Chicken Burgers with Barbecue Onion Sauce

Rachael Ray

From Every Day with Rachael Ray

June-July 2007

 

FOUR SERVINGS

 

 

 

 

 

 

2 pounds ground chicken

2/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or pecorino romano cheese (a couple generous handfuls)

4 cloves garlic, finely grated

3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves

1 1/2 tablespoons fennel seeds, toasted

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Grated peel and juice of 1 orange

Salt and black pepper

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), plus more for drizzling

1/4 pound pancetta, chopped

2 red onions, chopped

1 bay leaf

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons honey or brown sugar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

4 crusty rolls, split

1 cup arugula leaves, shredded

1/2 head endive, chopped

1/2 head radicchio, chopped

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, cheese, garlic, rosemary, fennel seeds, crushed red pepper, allspice, orange peel and 1/4 teaspoon salt; season with black pepper. Form the mixture into 4 patties, pressing your thumb into the center of each to keep it from bulging as it cooks. Set the patties aside.

2. In a medium skillet set on the grill, heat 2 tablespoons EVOO, 2 turns of the pan. Add the pancetta and cook until crisp, 3 to 4 minutes, then add the onions and season with salt and lots of black pepper. Add the bay leaf and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Discard the bay leaf. Stir in the vinegar, honey, Worcestershire sauce and orange juice and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 6 to 7 minutes (if the sauce begins to dry out, stir in a little water).

3. Drizzle the patties liberally with EVOO. Grill until firm to the touch but still juicy, about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate to rest for 5 minutes. Toast the rolls on the grill and drizzle with EVOO. Set aside.

4. In a medium bowl, toss together the lettuces; pile onto the roll bottoms. Top each with a patty, onion sauce and a roll top.

Southwest Shepherd's Pie

 

(makes 6 servings)

 

1 large onion, 8 ounces (240 g), chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 carrot, 3 ounces (90 g), shredded

1/2 pound (240 g) button mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

1 pound (480 g) extra-lean ground beef sirloin

1 teaspoon (5 ml) crushed dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) crushed dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon (9 g) unbleached all-purpose flour

1 cup (240 ml) fat-free low-sodium canned beef broth

1/3 cup (80 ml) dry red wine or additional beef broth

2 tablespoons (30 ml) tomato paste

vegetable cooking spray

 

Topping:

 

1 pound (480 g) russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

3 to 4 tablespoons (45 to 60 ml) skim milk

1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) salt (optional)

1 to 2 tablespoons (15 to 30 ml) minced pickled jalapeño chile

peppers,

 

or to taste

1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro or flat-leaf parsley

1 tablespoon (15 ml) minced scallion

1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) paprika

3 tablespoons (30 g) shredded 2% jack cheese

 

 

In a large nonstick skillet, sauté onion, garlic, carrot, and

mushrooms

 

over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are wilted

and

pan liquids are absorbed, about 6 minutes.

Crumble in the ground sirloin and continue to cook, stirring

occasionally, until beef is well browned, about 5 minutes. Drain off

any

excess fat.

Add oregano, thyme, cumin, and pepper. Sprinkle flour over the beef

mixture and stir. Add beef broth, wine, and tomato paste. Stir until

well combined.

Line a 2-quart (2 l) casserole with a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil

 

large enough to completely enclose the casserole. Lightly spray the

foil

inside the casserole with cooking spray.

Transfer meat mixture to the prepared casserole. Set aside while you

prepare the topping.

Place the potatoes in a pot of boiling water to cover. Reduce heat and

simmer until tender when pierced with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain.

Mash the potatoes, adding sufficient skim milk until the potatoes are

fluffy. Stir in the salt (if using), minced jalapeño chiles, cilantro,

and scallion. Spoon the potato mixture onto the top of the meat

mixture, making swirls with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with paprika

and

cheese. 8. Cover the casserole and freeze until solid. Lift the food

out of the casserole (the foil will adhere), wrap securely in the

foil,

then slip the package into a self-sealing plastic freezer bag or

overwrap in

additional foil or freezer paper. Label with the casserole name and

the

date. Use within 3 months.

When ready to bake, unwrap the casserole and place back in the

casserole

dish to bake. Defrost completely. Then bake at 375°F (190°C) for 40

to

45 minutes, until golden and bubbly. (Since the casserole will be full,

it may bubble over, so place a sheet of aluminum foil under the

casserole to catch any drips.) Serve hot.

Slow Cooker Irish Stew - 13 pts

 

Recipe By :Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook by Beth

Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann

Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00

Categories : 4-5 quart 5-7quart

Low Fat (less than 20%) Medium or large round

or oval

Slow Cooker

 

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

-------- ------------ ------------ --------- --------- --

1 tablespoon olive oil -- (1 to 2 T. as needed)

2 pounds lamb shoulder -- trimmed of fat, cut into 1

1/2-inch cubes, and blotted dry

8 new white potatoes -- scrubbed and sliced 1/2

inch thick

8 small white boiling onions -- cut in half

12 ounces baby carrots -- (1 bag), or 3 large carrots,

cut into thick rounds

4 ribs celery -- chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

2 1/2 teaspoons salt free herb blend seasoning -- such as Mrs.

Dash or McCormick

2 teaspoons dried thyme

1 bay leaf

2 cups water -- chicken broth, or vegetable broth

salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

 

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 T. of the oil over medium-high heat

and brown half of the lamb on all sides. Set aside and brown the other

half, adding more oil if needed.

 

Layer the potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery in the slow cooker and

place the meat on top. Add the parsley, herb blend, thyme, and bay leaf

and pour over the water. Cover and cook on High for 1 hour.

 

Turn the cooker to Low and cook until the lamb and vegetables are very

tender, 6 to 7 hours.

 

Season with salt and pepper. If you like your stew thickened, use 1 or

2

tablespoons of beurre manie. Serve the stew straight out of the pot.

 

Serves 6.

 

Beurre Manie:

Place and equal amount of soft butter and flour in a bowl or small food

processor. Using a fork or pulsing motion, mash them together until the

mixture becomes a semifirm mass. It can be made ahead, divided into

portions, then wrapped in plastic and stored in the refrigerator for a

week, or in the freezer (it can be used frozen). For a soup, use the

ratio

of 1 tablespoon each of butter and flour to 1 cup of liquid, and for a

stew, 2 tablespoons each of butter and flour to 1 cup of liquid. Turn

the

cooker to High, stir the beurre manie into the hot liquid, re-cover,

and

cook until thick, 10 to 15 minutes, or cook a bit longer on Low.

The delicious and perennially popular Irish stew, hailing

from the green isle of prophets and philosophers, is a

classic ragout in its technique. Just as with stews in

France, the meat is cut into pieces, browned to caramelize

the surface, then cooked in lots of liquid without a

thickener. Serve this with Irish soda bread and butter and

a pint of cold Guinness for the quintessential pub meal.

The Ultimate Chocolate Covered Caramel Apples

Note from Cheri:

We've taken the idea of the caramel apples over the top and turned them into monster treats, suitable for gourmet gift-giving.

 

The apple in the photo is for purists, just caramel (and lots of it) and a mixture of white and dark chocolate. However, the options for gourmet apples are endless. Roll your caramel dipped apple in chopped toasted nuts or coconut, cookie crumbs, candy bits, whatever sounds good to you, before coating with melted chocolate. Each of these apples feeds about 6 people just slice in to wedges. They are decadent to say the least! Wrap finished apples in cellophane, tie with a ribbon and you've got a spectacular gift.

 

 

3 packages (14 oz.) caramel candies

2 tablespoons water

6-8 large Granny Smith apples

6-8 heavy wooden skewers or sticks

 

melted chocolate and/or white chocolate

see directions below for amounts

 

Optional:

chopped peanuts or other nuts

or

toasted coconut

or

candy sprinkles

or

Oreo® cookie crumbs

or

chopped candy bars

 

waxed paper

 

 

Makes 6-8 Large Apples

Line a large cookie sheet with buttered waxed paper, set aside.

 

Wash and completely dry apples. Insert a stick through stems. Sometimes it helps to use two sticks or even a fork, as these apples become quite heavy during the dipping process and a single stick may break. If you plan on using nuts coconut or any of the other optional coating ingredients get them ready by placing in a small bowl.

 

Combine caramels and water in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until caramels melt. Cool slightly. You can also use your slow cooker to melt the caramel, like we did in the photo (we were making a lot of apples). Dip each apple in caramel mixture, coating evenly, use a spoon to help you cover the top part of the apple as in photo 1. Allow caramel to set slightly and then dip in caramel again (that's right, two coatings of caramel -- I warned you these apples were decadent!).

 

 

After the second caramel dip, while the caramel is still liquid, roll the apple in the nuts or coconut or other coating ingredients (not shown). Coating the apple with one of these ingredients helps to keep the apple from sticking to the waxed paper, as well as give texture and flavor, but the apples are still great without this step.

 

Next melt the chocolate either in a double boiler, a microwave, or in a glass bowl set inside a slow cooker which is filled part way with hot water as in photo 2. You'll notice I didn't say how much chocolate to melt. It depends on how decadent you want the apple to be. We used about 3 oz. of chocolate per apple, mixed white and dark.

 

Dip the bottom of the caramel apple in chocolate, as in photo 3. Use a spoon to drizzle melted chocolate over the top as in photo 4 below, completely encasing the apple in chocolate. Using two different types of chocolate gives the apple a more decorative effect. Allow chocolate to set, as in photo 5, before wrapping in cellophane.

Lasagna Spinach Meatloaf

 

Description

This is a great recipe, low in fat and big in taste so much that You will never miss the pasta.

 

Ingredients

Sauce:

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 onion, chopped

 

?? garlic quantity ??

 

2 cans (19 oz. each) chopped tomatoes, untrained

5 ½ oz. can tomato paste, divided

2 tsp. dried basil

Salt & pepper to taste

½ tsp. crushed red pepper (optional for those who like a little heat)

 

 

Filling:

6 cups fresh spinach

1 egg

1 cup Ricotta cheese

½ cup Kraft Mozzarella Cheese, shredded

3 Tbsp. Kraft Parmesan cheese, grated

3 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 Tbsp. milk

 

Meat:

1 egg, beaten

1 onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup bread crumbs

3 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. pepper

1 ½ lbs. lean ground beef

 

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350

E F. Sauce: Cook onion and garlic over medium heat until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and ½ cup tomato paste and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes, continuing to stir often. Season to taste with basil, salt and pepper and, if desired, crushed red pepper. Set aside. Filling: Wash spinach. Shake off excess water but do not dry. Place spinach in a saucepan with no additional water, cover and cook over medium-high heat until just wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Set aside. Mix together egg, cheeses, parsley, nutmeg and salt and pepper. Set aside. Meat: Mix together all ingredients except meat. Combine with the meat and mix well. Cut two large sheets of waxed or parchment paper. Roll meat mixture into a 18" X 8" rectangle and remove top layer of paper. Leaving a 1" border on all sides, spread a layer of spinach over meat, and followed by cheese mixture and 1 cup of sauce. Roll meat from the short end, just like you would when making a jellyroll cake, lifting the paper out of the way as you go. Don't worry if some of the filling oozes out, just tuck it back in. Carefully transfer roll, seam side up, to a 9" X 5" loaf pan. Bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes or until temperature on a meat thermometer reaches 145E F. Let stand for 20 minutes before removing from pan. Drain off excess fat, remove from pan. Serve in slices, covered in the remaining tomato sauce.

WITCH'S BREW (for Halloween parties)

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Ingredients

 

4 Inch Stick Cinnamon (Break In Pieces)

1 Teaspoon Allspice (Whole)

1 Teaspoon Whole Cloves

1/3 Cup Brown Sugar (Tamped Down)

7 Cups Apple Cider

1 To 1 & 1/2 Cups Rum (or, add extra cider for non alcoholic)

1 Cup Butter

 

Procedure

 

Tie spices in a 4 to 6 inch square of double thickness cheesecloth. (100% cotton)

 

In a crockpot or slow cooker, combine all ingredients except butter. Cover and cook on low setting 7 to 8 hours or on high setting 3 to 4 hours.

 

Discard spice bag. Ladle hot punch into cups and float about 1/2 teaspoon butter atop each serving.

 

Makes ten 6 oz. servings.

 

Note: Want a "non alcoholic drink"? You can substitute 1 to 1 & 1/2 cups of apple cider for the rum.

 

Also: At one of our Halloween parties, we had this hot and also we had a punch bowl with it cold.

 

I took one of those latex surgical gloves and filled it with water and tied the end closed. Then, I froze it. It looked really goulish and cool floating on the top of the cider punch. It looked like a hand floating in the punch!! LOL It kept the punch cold without diluting it down too. (I had a spare hand glove in the freezer for when the one I was using melted down.)

 

You don't need the butter if it's served cold.

1 tablespoon Mustard Seeds

 

1 tablespoon Black Peppercorns

 

1 tablespoon Whole Fenugreek (optional)

 

1 tablespoon Cloves (whole)

 

1 cup Turmeric ground

 

 

 

Preparation

 

What sets this recipe apart is the unexpected ingredient: toasted rice.

The

rice acts as both a flavoring and natural thickener.

 

 

 

In a dry sauté pan place the rice and toast over medium heat, stirring

occasionally. Place into a bowl and set aside. Add the whole spices to

the

pan and toast until the aromas are released. Remove from the heat and

place

in the bowl with the rice. In batches, grind this mixture in a spice

grinder

(coffee grinder) until milled; add the ground turmeric and blend. This

makes

one cup, which is enough for 6-8 pounds of meat.

8 ounces sliced mushrooms

 

3/4 cup diced yellow onion

 

2 tablespoons butter

 

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

 

1 teaspoon lemon juice

 

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper2 (10-ounce packages frozen, chopped

spinach

thawed

 

2 cups cooled spinach dip sauce (see recipe note)

 

3/4 cup (6 ounces) sour cream

 

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

 

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

 

 

 

1. Saute the mushrooms and onion in butter with the Italian seasonings,

lemon juice, salt and black pepper. When the mushrooms are tender they

are

cooked. Drain and cool.

 

 

 

2. Squeeze water from thawed spinach, making sure the spinach is

completely

dry.

 

 

 

3. Combine the dry spinach with the cooled dip sauce, sour cream and

cheeses

 

 

 

 

4. Add lemon juice and spices and the mushroom-onion mixture.

 

 

 

How to make the spinach dip sauce: In a small saucepan on medium heat,

melt

2 tablespoons butter. Add 2 tablespoons minced shallots and 1

tablespoon

minced garlic. Saute for 3 minutes. Slowly whisk in 3 tablespoons

all-purpose flour to make a roux. Cook 4 minutes. While stirring, add

16

ounces (2 cups) heavy cream, 1 teaspoon ground white pepper, 1 teaspoon

salt

1/4 cup finely juliennned fresh basil and 1/4 cup freshly shredded

ingredients are well-combined. Pour onto platter and top with 2

tablespoons

Parmigiano-Reggiano and additional black pepper.

 

 

 

NOTE: The recipe recommends making the dip a day ahead to allow the

flavors

ample time to meld. Also, the spinach mixture and the spinach dip sauce

should be chilled before combining them.

 

 

 

The spinach dip is best served warm with white corn tortillas and fresh

salsa. Heat in a microwave or in a saucepan on the stovetop, stir

frequently

so that the mixture won't burn or stick to the pan

Disne

Posted by: ">^..^< Kelly" kellygirl3398@gmail.com kellygirl3398

Date: Thu Sep 27, 2007 10:57 am ((PDT))

 

 

Chicken and Vegetable Quesadillas

 

Wolfgang Puck Cafe, Downtown Disney

 

Yield: 4 quesadillas

 

 

 

2 boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves, grilled or broiled

 

 

 

Marinade:

 

1/3 cup olive oil

 

3 tablespoons lime juice

 

1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno pepper

 

1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro

 

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

 

 

Roasted tomato and pepper salsa:

 

4 Roma tomatoes

 

1 large red bell pepper

 

1 poblano Chile

 

2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

 

2 tablespoons chopped scallion

 

1 tablespoon olive oil

 

Salt

 

Freshly ground black pepper

 

 

 

8 large flour tortillas (about 8 to 9 inches diameter)

 

2 cups grated Monterey jack cheese

 

Extra olive oil for oiling skillet

 

Sour cream and cilantro sprigs for garnish

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Slice cooked, grilled chicken breasts into thin strips.

 

 

 

2. In a glass bowl combine olive oil, lime juice, jalapeno, cilantro

and

salt. Add chicken strips, toss to coat thoroughly and cover with

plastic

wrap. Refrigerate for about 1 hour to marinade.

 

 

 

3. To make salsa: Working with one Roma tomato at a time, hold over

open gas

flame with a long handled carving fork, turning constantly for about 1

to 2

minutes until skin blackens and peels away from tomato. Repeat with red

bell

pepper and poblano Chile. If you haven?t got a gas cooktop, place Roma

tomatoes on broiler tray directly under pre-heated broiler. Turn

several

times until skins are blackened and peeling. Repeat with red bell

pepper and

poblano Chile.

 

 

 

4. Peel, core, seed and dice tomatoes, red bell pepper and Chile and

stir

together in a medium bowl with cilantro, scallions and 1 tablespoon

olive

oil. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

 

 

 

5. To assemble quesadillas: With a slotted spoon remove chicken mixture

from

marinade and place in a clean bowl. Discard excess marinading liquid.

Place

one tortilla in base of lightly oiled, large, heavy skillet set over

medium

heat. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese over surface of

tortilla.

Top with about one fourth of salsa mixture and marinated chicken

mixture.

Top with another 1/4 cup cheese and another tortilla. With a flat metal

spatula press down firmly on quesadilla in pan to help the cheese to

melt

and the filling to stick together. Cook for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Carefully flip over entire quesadilla and cook other side, pressing

down

with spatula for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. The tortillas should be

golden

brown and cheese should be melted. Adjust heat under pan if tortilla is

getting too brown. Remove from skillet; keep warm on baking sheet in a

low

oven. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling to make 4

quesadillas.

 

 

 

Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges; arrange on a hot plate (4 wedges for

an

entree, 1 or 2 wedges for an appetizer). Top each serving with a small

dollop of sour cream and a sprig of cilantro.

Deep-Fried Stuffing on a Stick Recipe courtesy Paula Deen, 2007I

ngredients Stuffing: 5 tablespoons butter,

divided 1 pound breakfast sausage,

bulk 1 cup diced onion

1/2 cup diced carrot

1/2 cup diced celery

1 bag unseasoned bread cubes, for stuffing 1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes

2 teaspoons ground sage Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 quart chicken stock 4 eggs,beaten

 

For Frying: Oil, for frying 2 cups all-purpose flour ProcedureSpecial equipment: 12 wooden ice cream sticks or skewers Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a9 by 13-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it is cooked through. Transfer to a plate, while spooning off the excess grease, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the skillet. Add 4 tablespoons of the butter and melt. Add the onion, carrot and celery and saute until softened. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, toss together bread cubes, saltines, poultry seasoning, parsley flakes, sage, salt and pepper. Stir the sauteed vegetables into the mixing bowl. Pour in the chicken stock and eggs and toss together. Turn the stuffing out into the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes until the top is golden brown and the juices in the stuffing are bubbling. Preheat oil in the deep-fryer to 350 degrees F. Cool the stuffing completely. Cut it into 12 squares. Remove each square from the dish and wrap it around a wooden stick, pressing it onto the stick with your hands. Make the stuffing form a log shape around the popsicle stick, leaving 2-inches of the stick exposed for the handle. This should look somewhat like a lumpy corn dog. Roll the stick in the flour, coating it well and then shaking off the excess. Gently lower the sticks into the hot oil and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain.

:laugh: Holiday Menu :VBGal2:

 

Herbs 'N Spices: A Holiday Menu

 

The following is a complete menu for a holiday open

House or buffet-add the appetizers I have recipes for

In Company's Coming below, or your own and you'll

Be set!

 

Savory Turkey with Dressing

 

Ingredients:

1 turkey, 12-14 lbs -- thawed if frozen

1/2 cup butter or margarine -- at room temperature

2 teaspoons dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried rosemary -- crushed

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rinse and pat dry the

Inside and outside of the turkey with paper towels.

Remove the giblets, neck, and tailpiece. Combine the

Butter, herbs and salt in a small bowl. Carefully loosen

Skin from the breast of the turkey starting from neck. Turn

The turkey over and separate skin from the legs and thighs.

Spread 1/2 of butter mixture between skin and meat over

Breast, legs and thighs. Rub remaining butter mixture over

The turkey skin. Fill the turkey body and neck cavities with

Some of stuffing; truss if desired. Transfer remaining stuffing

To a buttered casserole dish and refrigerate until later. Place

Turkey on rack set in a roasting pan. Roast, basting with pan

Juices, until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of

Thigh registers 180 degrees. This will take between three and

Four hours, depending on your oven. Place dish with stuffing

In oven 30 minutes before turkey is done. Let the turkey rest

15 minutes out of the oven before carving. NOTES: You can

Do this same thing with a bone-in turkey breast, except the

Stuffing will be cooked in a casserole dish, and the meat will

Take much less time. A good alternative if you don't want any

Leftovers or have only a few people for dinner.

 

Roasted Garlic Stuffing

 

Ingredients:

1 cup diced sweet onions

1 cup diced celery

1 cup diced tart apples

1/4 cup minced shallots

2 tablespoons butter

2 cups chicken stock

2 tablespoons roasted garlic puree (see note)

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

4 cups diced dried bread croutons

Salt and fresh ground pepper

 

In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté onions, celery, apples

And shallots in 2 tablespoons butter until tender. Add 2 cups

Chicken stock and simmer until liquid is reduced by half. Add

Garlic and herbs. Stir in croutons. Stuff turkey and bake extra

In a buttered baking dish and bake for 20-30 minutes until

Golden brown on top.

 

Notes: Garlic Puree is made by cutting off the very top of a

Whole garlic bulb and roasting in a 350 degree oven after it's

Been wrapped loosely in foil for 20 minutes or until it's soft.

Cool enough to handle and push down the bulb to squeeze

The garlic out of the cloves. Mash and use.

 

Serving Directions: You may remove the dressing and serve

In a bowl on the buffet next to the sliced turkey and the gravy,

Or leave whole and place all on a very large platter and assign

Someone the duty of carving and serving to the guests. Either

Way is fine.

 

Cranberry Salsa

 

Ingredients:

2 whole oranges

2 cups fresh cranberries

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup minced onion

1 tablespoon cilantro

1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger root

1 Serrano Chili, minced

Grate 4 tablespoons of the peel. Coarsely chop

The oranges. Chop or process the cranberries in

A blender or food processor until coarsely chopped,

But not too fine. Combine all ingredients and allow to

Blend at least 6 hours, overnight if possible. Serve

Next to the turkey.

Bowl and toss with parsley.

Boiling water

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed

1/4 cup hearty mustard, such as a German mustard

Until the carrots are tender, but not mushy. Drain. In

a small saucepan, combine butter, sugar and mustard.

How To Make Powdered Sugar (Confectioner' s Sugar)

No need to pay a premium for powdered sugar when you can make it yourself.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 15 minutes

Here's How:

Place a cup of granulated sugar in the blender for each cup of powdered sugar needed.

 

Blend at high speed until the sugar turns to powder.

 

Use immediately, or store in an air-tight container.

 

Tips:

To prevent caking and improve thickening ability (important when making icing), add 1-2 Tablespoons of corn starch for each cup of sugar made.

Sugar may etch your blender pitcher, particularly if it's made of plastic. If this is a concern, use a coffee grinder or spice grinder instead.

What You Need:

A blender

Measuring cups

Measuring spoons

Granulated sugar

Corn starch (optional)
