  • Kicked-Up Cranberry Sauce: Cranberry, Apple, and Jalapeño United 26 Nov 2014 | 2:03 am

    If you're like me, you probably get tired of the regular boring cranberry sauce that most people serve at holiday dinners. You know the stuff that I'm referring to — that gelatinous, mushy cranberry mold that your grandmother plated up every year for as long as you can remember. The flavor isn't terribly bad, but I don't understand why something that is as easy to make as homemade cranberry sauce is so often purchased off a grocery store shelf. When the canned version is served alongside a delicious spread of Thanksgiving goodies, I'm the first to overlook it and move on to the next offering. So this year I decided to try something new: since I'm a fan of spicy foods, I thought I'd add jalapeños to my otherwise fairly sweet homemade sauce and the results were delicious. If you prefer another type of pepper, feel free to use that one. You really can't go wrong with this recipe! Continue reading →

  • Barbecue Thanksgiving Part 2: Potatoes Mashed, Potatoes Sweet 24 Nov 2014 | 1:35 pm

    You know your Thanksgiving taters are yummy when they vanish before you get to eat them. I'm assuming they were tasty, since the pan was whistle-clean when I went for my first helping, only to be greeted by the fading fumes of molasses as a small child helped themselves for thirds, and, not coincidentally, lasts.

  • Barbecue Thanksgiving Part 1: Pulled Pork Stuffing and Gravy 20 Nov 2014 | 11:10 pm

    A few years back, some of our favorite food writers collaborated on a barbecued Thanksgiving on our mother site, the Fiery Foods & Barbecue Super Site. Drawing inspiration from that idea, me and mine cooked up our own take on that awesome theme. Here's the first part of that big adventure: Dr. BBQ's pulled pork stuffing and a pulled pork gravy.

  • Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey Enchilada Hot Dish 20 Nov 2014 | 7:16 pm

  • Turkey Tetrazzini — Down-Home Comfort 28 Nov 2014 | 1:00 pm FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    Comforting, bubbling casseroles such as this down-home comfort Turkey Tetrazzini have long been prepared by the ladies of the Methodist church in the south Georgia town where I grew up. They were taken to the families in celebration. As different as most faiths seem to be, they all share some sort of ceremony at key moments in human life: the union of two people, the birth of a child, the celebration of adulthood — whether that be a bat mitzvah, a confirmation or a hunter killing his first antelope — and the celebration of death. Food is more than keeping the family fed. Food is the adhesive that binds the community. This sentiment is especially clear at Thanksgiving as friends and family gather together in gratitude.

    Then, the day after all that loving gratefulness, you’re up to your eyeballs in leftovers and your refrigerator is filled to the max. Inevitably, someone doesn’t seal the cranberry sauce and it dribbles down the door, or someone doesn’t close the bag of dressing and crumbs of cornbread multiply and populate the produce bin. And I find that after a sandwich or two, the family is tired of turkey. I prefer to reshape and repurpose leftovers instead of trotting out the same old thing for a couple of days. Give your turkey a makeover with turkey Tetrazzini.

    Turkey Tetrazzini is a baked pasta dish made with chopped turkey, vegetables and pasta bound together in gravy. It’s a comfort-food trifecta: pasta, poultry and gravy. This dish may sound Italian, but it’s an all-American classic. The ultra-rich traditional church lady version contained copious amounts of heavy cream. Then, in the casserole days of the ’70s, cream cheese was added and a white sauce was replaced with the familiar red-and-white can of cream of mushroom soup. I’ve taken a good deal of the fat out of this classic church casserole, but I promise you won’t miss the flavor.

  • Best 5 Thanksgiving Leftovers 28 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    Turkey TetrazziniYou’ve planned for your Thanksgiving dinner, prepared the meal and hosted the holiday party, and you’re now looking at a refrigerator full of leftovers. While simply reheating the fixings and enjoying a next-day feast is surely a can-do approach to tackling what remains, try reinventing the turkey, potatoes and vegetables into all-new dishes, like an easy-to-make frittata or over-the-top sandwich. Read on below for Food Network’s top-five Thanksgiving leftovers ideas, then head over to Thanksgiving Central for more leftover inspiration.

    5. Turkey Pot Pie — Made with leftover turkey meat instead of the traditional chicken, this comforting pot pie boasts a buttery premade pie crust, so it’s a cinch to prepare.

    4. Turkey Frittata — An all-in-one breakfast featuring creamy eggs, boiled potatoes and bell peppers, this potato-studded frittata is topped with a blanket of cheese and turns fluffy after just a few minutes in the oven.

    3. Grilled Turkey, Brie and Apple Butter Sandwich — This isn’t your ordinary turkey sandwich. Piled high with juicy fresh turkey and gooey cheeses, this hot sandwich takes less than 15 minutes to make and features one key special ingredient: apple butter, which promises richness and subtle sweetness in the sandwich.

    2. Turkey Vegetable Soup with Stuffing Dumplings — Let stuffing shine in this big-batch soup recipe by balling up the bread casserole with whisked eggs and seasonings to create hearty dumplings.

    1. Turkey Tetrazzini — If you’re looking to feed a crowd of lingering holiday houseguests, Tyler Florence’s big-batch tetrazzini (pictured above) is a go-to pick. Tyler uses turkey instead of chicken and tosses the pasta with a smooth mushroom sauce before baking.

  • Sunny’s Italian Sausage-Stuffed Acorn Squash — The Weekender 27 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    Sausage-Stuffed Acorn SquashI don’t know if it was trendy in the 1980s or if it was a particular quirk of my mother’s, but we ate many a meal of stuffed vegetables during my childhood. No hollow or overgrown vegetable was safe. Peppers of all colors, giant zucchini, tomatoes and even, occasionally, avocados were filled with a medley of rice, protein and onion, then draped with shredded cheese and run under the broiler.

    I’m fairly convinced that the reason my mom liked this particular style of dinner prep so much was that it gave her the opportunity to stretch a pound of meat across several meals and use up all manner of odds and ends from the crisper. I also suspect that she tucked more vegetables into the filling than I was aware of as a small child.

    Many years have passed since I groaned at the idea of a meal of stuffed peppers or summer squash. In fact, now that I’m in charge of the grocery budget and my refrigerator’s ecosystem, I can see the many virtues in this style of cooking.

    Right now, we’ve got a world of winter squash available for the stuffing. I like Sunny Anderson’s Italian Sausage-Stuffed Acorn Squash, but truly, just about any combination of savory veg, meat (or crumbled tofu), and grain works wonders. This weekend, instead of clearing out the fridge with a big pot of soup, finish off those holiday tidbits by sauteing them and stuffing them into acorn squash. Tell your family that the Weekender told you to do it!Acorn Squash
