Happy Thanksgiving Fellow Hounds!

Hope everyone had a good "turkey day". : )
Now, did anyone do an "untraditional" / non-turkey dinner? I was in Orlando visiting the in-laws & had turkey/stuffing, but they did an au gratin potato instead of the "usual" mashed so we had a little bit of a twist ........ that, & I was able to eat outside which I usually can't do this time of year in Boston!

  1. In addition to the regular turkey, we made a tofurkey wrapped in pancetta for the vegetarians in our group. Turned out great!

          See, even vegetarians make an exception for bacon (in one form or another) ;)

        How else could you eat tofurkey?

      2. I was in Aruba enjoying schnitzle and potato gratin with Dutch Gouda cheese! Next year I think I would like to try making a turducken.

          I made paparadelle with butternut squash, walnuts and dried cranberries.

        2. Did a regular brined turkey but had gratin dauphinoise instead of regular mashed potatoes, and some buttered chanterelles in addition to the regular items.

          The best part, though, was while cooking the rest of the stuff, I seared the turkey liver and heart in brown butter and had these "medium-rare" with some whole grain mustard, parsley, kosher salt, cornichons, and pickled shallots. DURICIOUS.
