Gobble Gobble, Collection of Turkey Recipes

Can you believe how close we are getting to Thanksgiving?

What are your big plans? Will you be hosting the family dinner or will you be attending?

We usually go to hubby’s parent’s house. Our apartment is too small to get our whole family together. We usually make it a potluck to make it easier on everyone. Since I don’t host the Thanksgiving dinner, I don’t make the turkey. I bring some sides and desserts.

I just hope the little man will eat some of the Thanksgiving dinner. Last year, he was being so picky that I ended up making him a grilled cheese. There were so many tasty dishes and he was happy with his grilled cheese.

Since I won’t be making the turkey, I put together this collection to bring you several different recipes, all in one place.

Starting today and until Thanksgiving, I will be sharing side dishes, breads and desserts to get you ready for your holiday dinner. I hope you will find some great ideas here.

The one time that I made Thanksgiving turkey, I used Alton’s recipe and it turned out great. I’m a big Alton Brown fan so I wanted to add his recipe to this collection! There is a video too, he is too funny.

    The very best turkey we’ve had is Emeril Lagasse’s Southwestern brined turkey. It is so very moist and the taste is out of this world. We’ve been making it for about 15 years and everyone always raves about it. But I do have to admit all of the turkey’s look delicious. I am getting hungry just looking at them. :-)

  5. I have a nephew who is 15 years old who only eats pizza from a pizza shop. Oh he is missing out on such wonderful foods. I know he will one day eat normally but really what is normal anyway?!

  6. This looks amazing! We do potluck too, with the host house making the turkey and everyone else bringing the sides and desserts. Thanks for putting up my bacon covered bird!
