Because I love all things Thanksgiving, and because I’m a huge fan of Alton Brown from Good Eats Fame, I’ve decided to share some great Thanksgiving recipes from the super-chef himself. Below are several of his best Thanksgiving recipes to try your hand, and impress your friends and family this Thanksgiving!
First and foremost, the star of the evening. No, I’m not talking about your crazy uncle who is three sheets to the wind by the time he pulls into your driveway, I”m talking about the Turkey! The main attraction! Alton has a great Turkey recipe that is going to delight you and all your guests. Forewarning, give yourself time to get this bird ready. It takes at least 10 hours of prep!
At Thanksgiving, the Turkey typically takes front and center. Coming in at a close second, at least for me, is a good cranberry sauce. While I admit I still like the the cranberry sauce from a can, if you want to go gourmet, check out Alton’s Cranberry Sauce Recipe.
If cranberry sauce isn’t enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, try your hand at Alton’s Sweet Corn Bread Pudding. It’s the perfect compliment to your Thanksgiving dinner.
If you are looking for the best tools to get the above jobs done, visit Abt’s Gourmet Shop and find what you need!
