Mix vodka and cranberry juice in a shaker with ice and add a splash of seltzer. Garnish with cranberries or lime wedges.

A turkey cranberry cocktail will match perfectly with a roasted turkey dressed with cranberry sauce. To prepare this, mix 1½ part wild Turkey Bourbon whiskey with 4 parts cranberry juice. Add ½ part of brandy and 1 teaspoon of lime juice.

Wine Wine is an elegant and hassle free choice for your Thanksgiving dinner. Try a white wine such as a Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, White Burgundy, Riesling or White Zinfandel. If you prefer a red wine, try the classic Pinot Noir.

Sides

iFOOD.TV COOKBOOK | 7


Sides Chestnut, Port, Cranberry and Bacon Stuffing Serves 4 500g / 2 ½ cups sausage meat 75g / ½ cup dried cranberries Port 50ml / ¼ cup 1 clove of garlic chopped 1 white onion chopped 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme 3 rashers of streaky bacon 240g cooked and peeled chestnuts 140g breadcrumbs 2/12 cups or 3 slices white bread 1 large egg Salt and pepper

Directions: 1. Preheat oven to Gas 5 or 190c 2. Soak the cranberries in the port for about an hour before you start making it! Makes it taste nicer but don’t worry about it if you’ve run out of time! 3. Start by gently frying the onions and bacon together in a pan with a little oil or butter, until they start to go golden, about 3 minutes. Meanwhile blend the chestnuts until they are in small pieces or finely chop them with a knife. 4. Once the bacon and onions are cooked put them in a big bowl and simply add all the other ingredients and mix well together. Get your hands in there and messy – its easier! 5. Roll into balls or use as stuffing to put inside the turkey. If you’re cooking it separately from the turkey, roll into balls and cook in the oven for approximately 30 minutes on gas 5.

Sides Sweet Potato Dauphinois Serves 8 3 large sweet potatoes 1 cup Gruyere cheese, shredded Salt and pepper to taste 2-3 cups heavy whipping cream 1 stick butter 1 tbsp nutmeg

Directions: 1. Clean and then thinly slice the sweet potatoes into circles. A mandolin is most helpful in this process. 2. In a pie dish, grease the dish with the butter. 3. Create a layer of sweet potatoes on the bottom of the dish. Pinch off small nuggets of butter and sprinkle on top of the sweet potatoes (about 1 tbsp of butter/layer). 4. With each layer of sweet potatoes, sprinkle the finely shredded gruyere cheese, a pinch of salt, pepper and nutmeg. Note: This will make about 4 layers of sweet potatoes and you want the top layer to have the butter/cheese as well. 5. Once the layers have been packed firm, pour cream around the perimeter until it starts to leak through the top of the potatoes. 6. Cover with aluminum foil. Place the pie dish on a cookie sheet to prevent any spills or drips from getting your oven dirty. This dish does have a tendency to ooze over the sides. 7. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour. After the hour has passed, for 5 minutes, turn the oven to the broiler setting, remove the foil and broil. This will crisp up the potatoes. 8. Let cool for approximately 10 minutes. Cut like a pie and serve.

Making Thanksgiving Stuffing At Home

There are two main ways to stuff a turkey. The traditional method is to stuff the turkey with the uncooked stuffing ingredients and then roast it. Another method is to prepare the stuffing separately in a casserole dish and then stuff it inside the roasted turkey. Both methods will result in delicious stuffing if properly prepared, but the traditional method requires a little more care and attention. First, prepare your materials. You can use different types of items to stuff the turkey. One of the most common choices is to use dry bread cubes. You can also use vegetables, sausages, seafood, eggs, etc. Do not use pre-cooked or pre-packaged stuffing as you will not get the desired quality. If you prefer the traditional method of preparing stuffing, mix all the ingredients together before packing them into the turkey. Do not over stuff the turkey or even stuff tightly. Stuffing will expand during the cooking process, so packing a turkey too tightly may result in a burst mess. Keep enough space inside the turkey for hot air to circulate. After packing the turkey loosely tie both the drumsticks together with a clean and white string. Also secure the neck portion with the help of toothpicks, so that nothing comes out. Bake your extra stuffing as well so you can serve it next to the Turkey. To figure out how to cook the turkey, use a turkey roasting timetable. The time and temperature will vary according to the size of the turkey. A food thermometer is also useful for checking the temperature of your turkey as it roasts. The temperature in the inner thigh area should be 180 degrees F and the temperature of the stuffing area should be 165 degrees F.

If you find that the turkey has roasted completely before the stuffing is ready, remove all the stuffing from your turkey and bake it separately. Then re-stuff your turkey. If both have cooked properly in the same amount of time, take them out of the oven and immediately cover the turkey with aluminum foil. Let the turkey sir for 10-15 minutes, before carving. On the other hand, if you follow the second method, it will be quite simple. Bake the stuffing while the turkey is being roasted. Let the stuffing bake at 325F for at least an additional 30 minutes after the turkey is done. Then pack your turkey with the stuffing and voila! Your Thanksgiving turkey is ready to be served.

Directions: 1. Make rice according to package directions. 2. Melt butter in a deep skillet. Slice into the casing on the sausage and remove the meat inside. Place all meat in the skillet. On medium high heat, cook the meats and mash into a fine ground meat mixture. It should take about 10 minutes. 3. Add the Cajun Trinity, minced garlic and ½ cup chicken stock. Cover and simmer on medium heat for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and clumping. 4. Using a large mixing bowl, blend together meat mixture and rice. It should be a good 50/50 mix. Season to taste and stir well. Pour into a casserole dish or 13 x 9 baking pan. Garnish with chopped green onions and pecans. Serve hot.

TIP: May be used as a stuffing for turkey, chicken, or a pork roast. Rice dressing, or rice stuffing, is also a great side dish. Recipe By: Beryl Stokes, an authentic Cajun, born and raised in South Louisiana and creator of Cajun Cooking TV.

How To Carve A Thanksgiving Turkey

It’s that time of the year again, the one day you hope no one asks you to hold the knife. It’s Thanksgiving and you have no idea how to carve a turkey. Don’t lose hope just yet. Even if you are a complete novice to the fine art of carving, all it takes is a little knowledge, some basic knife skills and belief in yourself to carve out those perfect pieces for the family! To carve properly you will need a cooked turkey from which the juices have drained. You will also need a carving fork, a carving knife, a wooden board and a platter. It is also important to let the turkey rest for about 20-30 minutes after you take it out of the oven. Take a good look at the breastbone that runs right down the center of the turkey. On both sides of the breastbone are the meaty breasts of the bird. This is where you will get the best slices of meat. The breast also happens to be the portion that dries up the quickest. So, it is a good idea to finish eating those pieces first. And save the remaining pieces for leftovers. Separating the Wing Before you carve the breast, remove the wings. This is easily by twisting at the shoulder joint, exposing the bone. Cut through the joint and separate the wing. Carving the Turkey Breast

Now it’s time to attend to the best meat on the turkey: the breast. Carve the breast parallel to the breastbone. Be careful to slice diagonally through the meat. Continue carving until all the meat has been separated and arrange on a platter. Carving the Legs Place the turkey breast side up on the wooden cutting board. Begin carving the turkey by cutting away the legs. You can do this by cutting the skin between the thighs and the breast, then pressing the thigh outward and slicing through the hip joint or you can simply grab the leg, twist at the hip joint and tear it away. You will now have a piece which has the thigh as well as the drumstick. Cut at the joint to get separate pieces. It is up to you if you want to keep the drumsticks whole or to cut them into three or four slices, one from each side around the drumstick. Now focus your attention on the thigh. Place it flat on the cutting board, carve slices parallel to the bone and separate the meat

If you do not have a forcing bag, arrange the dough carefully into mounds on the sheets, using two spoons. The puffs will expand considerably in baking, so allow plenty of space between each one. 8. Coat each puff with the beaten egg mixture and put the sheets into the oven. Bake for 10 minutes. 9. Reduce the oven temperature to fairly hot 190째C and bake the puffs for a further 25 to 30 minutes, or until they have doubled in size and are light brown in color. 10. Remove from the oven and make a slit in the side of each puff to allow the steam to escape. Replace the puffs in the turned-off oven for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool to room temperature. 11. Cut the tops off the puffs and reserve. Fill the puffs with the ice-cream. Replace the tops and arrange the filled puffs on a serving dish. 12. Pour over the melted chocolate and serve at once.
