Easy Turkey Gravy (Video)

As it’s only about one week before Thanksgiving in the U.S., I am sharing a few extra recipes this month.  I really like to prep as much as I can before Thanksgiving, as you can see here and here.  This year is no exception, so here is an easy recipe for turkey gravy that, if you desire, cane be made up to 4 days ahead. 

For this recipe, I used my 2-qt. (1.9-L) Nonstick Sauce Pan.

2-qt. (1.9-L) Nonstick Sauce Pan

A Small Saucepan for Every Kitchen

This 2-qt. (2-L) sauce pan will be your go-to for sauces, melting butter, and reheating soup. The lid has straining holes, so you can use it to drain fat and liquids without dirtying a separate colander. And the pour spout will help you keep your stove, counters, and table drip-free. The high-quality nonstick coating means even gooey, cheesy sauces won’t stick. And when you’re done cooking, pop it in the dishwasher for hassle-free cleanup.

About Brilliance Nonstick Cookware

Brilliance cookware is where design and performance meet: It’s top-notch cookware with the performance you expect from Pampered Chef, plus the gorgeous design you want in your kitchen. Like your favorite pair of blue jeans, this cookware will never go out of style.

Ingredients

  • Drippings from Roast turkey (or legs, wings, etc.)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • Turkey broth enough to make 3 cups when added to drippings

Instructions

Roast several turkey legs (instructions here).  Alternatively, you could use wings, or whatever turkey parts you have on hand, or wish to use.

Mix softened butter with flour until a paste-like mixture is made.  Set aside.

Strain the drippings, discarding any solids.  Combine with turkey broth to make 3 cups.  Bring to a boil over medium heat in a 2-qt. (1.9 L) saucepan. Add in flour mixture, whisking constantly until combined.  Turn heat to medium-low, and simmer for another 2-3 minutes, until thickened. 

That’s it!  This is a really simple and easy recipe that anyone can make.  Of course, you can add other seasonings to this, but I wanted to share this as an easy go-to recipe, in case anyone reading this is hosting their first Thanksgiving on their own. 

 I hope that you’ll give this a try, and please leave a comment to let me know what you think about this recipe.  I would love to hear from you. Let’s make great food together!

Perfect Roast Turkey – Ina Garten (Video)

Crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, this recipe from Ina Garten and Food Network is the perfect way to make your turkey – so you can truly enjoy the day with those you love. 

This is the first time I’ve made this turkey, as I have been very loyal to my other recipe since 1997.  I can honestly say that this recipe is just as good and, due to the fact that there is substantially less prep work, this one I will definitely keep making!

I used my Enameled Cast Iron Pan to roast my turkey – it was perfect in every way!!

14 x 10 (35-cm x 25-cm) Enameled Cast Iron Pan

The Perfect Cast Iron Roasting Pan for Big Meals

This pan will be your secret weapon for special occasions and everyday meals, because it’s like two pans in one: A 3.5″ (9-cm) deep lasagna pan for big batches of family favorites, and a cast iron pan with rack for roast, chicken, and turkey dinners.

The stainless-steel rack lets air circulate around big cuts of meat for even cooking, and the handles sit high so they’re easy to grab and fold for storage. The high sides are great for baked pasta, lasagna, and casseroles, and keep your food from bubbling over. With the durability of cast iron comes a certain weightiness. But not to worry—this pan has two sturdy handles to help you lift and carry from the oven right to your dinner table.

About Enameled Cast Iron

Enameled cast iron is the kind of cookware that will become a fixture at every special meal you make—and that includes weeknight meals. The light enameled exterior means you can start using it right away—no seasoning required—and you can see food browning, so you can avoid scorching it. The beautifully enameled exterior lets you bring this cookware right from the stove or oven to the table, and cast iron’s excellent heat retention means food stays hot and delicious—even if not everyone makes it to the table as soon as dinner’s ready.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • Zest from one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 fresh turkey (10-12 pounds)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly Ground black pepper
  • 1 large bunch fresh thyme
  • 1 whole lemon, halved
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 head of garlic, cut in half crosswise

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F/180⁰C.

Prepare your lemon, onion and garlic.

Chop thyme and zest lemon. Combine butter, chopped thyme, zest, salt and pepper to taste in small bowl.  Mix well to combine. 

Remove giblets from turkey, then wash inside and out, then pat dry and place in Roasting Pan.  Lift skin on breast of turkey, then insert butter mixture liberally under the skin and above.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Place thyme, onion, lemon and garlic inside the cavity of the turkey. Tie legs and wings to body with cooking twine.

Roast turkey about 2 1/2 hours, or until an instant-read thermometer reads 165°F/75⁰C the thickest part of the turkey thigh, pricking the bird just above the crease between the thigh and the place where the turkey breast begins.  The juices should run clear when you cut between the leg and the thigh.  Remove the turkey to a cutting board and cover with aluminum foil; let rest for 20 minutes before carving.

That’s it!  I loved how easy this recipe was, and the turkey was perfectly cooked.  I hope that you’ll give this a try, and please leave a comment to let me know what you think about this recipe.  I would love to hear from you. Let’s make great food together!

Pressure Cooker Mashed Potatoes (Video)

Rich with butter and cream, these pressure cooker mashed potatoes are an easy-to-make side dish to serve at your Thanksgiving dinner, or anytime! For this recipe, I used my Pampered Chef Deluxe Multi Cooker to cook the potatoes, and our Insulated Serving bowl to keep them warm afterwards.  Here is the information on these two wonderful products:

Deluxe Multi Cooker

Pressure Cooker, Sous Vide Cooker, Slow Cooker, Yogurt Maker, and Sterilizer

Our pressure cooker offers so many ways to get a delicious meal on the table with minimal effort and perfect results, every time. In addition to quick cooking—fast, flavorful meals cooked up to 70% faster than other methods even from frozen—and no-fuss slow cooking so it does it thing while you’re doing yours, you can sous vide, the secret to restaurant-quality steaks, fish, and more. With sous vide, you pick the temperature, and it cooks to the exact doneness you love, every time! No more undercooked centers and overcooked outsides. After your food reaches your perfect doneness, it can stay put for up to two hours without overcooking, giving you lots of wiggle room for serving. Plus, there is a yogurt function so you can make homemade yogurt with just two ingredients and less than 5 minutes of hands-on time, and you can even sterilize bottles and utensils. All of this without ever turning on the oven!

Confident Cooking

With 16 preprogrammed settings at your fingertips, you can cook everything from meat, rice, and beans to desserts minus the guesswork. Some added features include an indicator that shows at-a-glance progress of preheating, cooking, and warming so you always know the status of what you’re making and two lid rest slots on the back so you can securely rest the lid on the Deluxe Multi Cooker instead of your counter. The steam release button is safely positioned to keep your hands away from any steam and the outside of the unit stays cool even while in use.

Product Details

  • 6-qt. (5.6-L) capacity; 13″ x 15″ x 13″ (33 cm x 38 cm x 33 cm)
  • Includes a stainless-steel inner pot, wire rack, and silicone seal which are all dishwasher-safe, and a cooking guide with recipes and cooking charts.
  • 16 preprogrammed settings: Custom, Sear, Egg, Poultry, Beef/Pork, Seafood, White Rice, Whole Grains, Soup, Beans, Dessert, Steam, Slow Cook, Sous Vide, Yogurt, and Sterilize.
  • Built in carrying handles, hidden cord storage, and an on/off switch.
  • Separate display screen lets you adjust chime volume, brightness, Fahrenheit or Celsius, and adjust for high-altitude cooking if needed.

Insulated Serving Bowl Set

For holidays, potlucks, or any big meal, it can feel nearly impossible to keep everything warm. With this insulated serving bowl set, you can keep foods warm up to 2 hours. The bowls have double-walled vacuum insulation to keep food hot, prevent sweating, and stay cool to the touch. Works with cold foods, too!

Each bowl comes with a clear plastic lid that’s double-walled and lets you see what’s inside. The lids hook on the sides of the bowls for easier serving.

Product Details

This set includes the following items (see individual product pages for more information).

1-qt. Insulated Serving Bowl

  • Keep hot dips and sides warm up on your holiday table or during mealtimes.

2.5-qt. Insulated Serving Bowl

  • Keep side dishes warm and ready to serve during the holidays, at family potlucks, and for weeknight dinner.

I would be remiss if I did not mention our Potato Masher:

A Wire Potato Masher That Fits in Your Drawer

Hand mashing potatoes makes them light and fluffy. That’s why a potato masher is a good tool to have around. Ours has a durable, broad stainless-steel wire head that’s excellent for mashing potatoes, root vegetables, avocados, hard-boiled eggs, and fruit. The ergonomic handle is designed to feel comfortable in your hand, and is perfectly balanced so that it won’t roll. When you squeeze the sides of the masher, it folds down and fits nicely in a kitchen drawer.

Buttery Herb Stuffing – How Sweet Eats (Video)

Made with fresh herbs, veggies and butter, this recipe from @howsweeteats is the BEST stuffing ever, no doubt about it! You may recall my other post reviewing a certain Burst Tomato and Burrata Pasta from Jessica over at How Sweet Eats. It was certainly the most delicious pasta dish, so much so that we have it several times a month, please do check that recipe out – after this, of course!

Since we have about 17+ people coming for Thanksgiving, I like to use our Stone Rectangular Baker With Tray for this recipe,  this way I can cover it with the tray whilst baking, and then use the warmed tray to bake my buttermilk biscuits at the same time, then use the tray to serve them afterwards!

The Stone Rectangular Baker With Tray offers the best of both worlds. The Stone Rectangular Baker and Stone Serving Tray combine the amazing cooking surface and heat retention of our unglazed stoneware with the beauty of our fully glazed stoneware.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs bread of choice, cubed (@14 cups) – slightly stale or toasted
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 cups diced sweet onions
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage, plus more for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat parsley, plus more for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary, plus more for garnish
  • 2 ½ cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F/180⁰C.

Slice bread into even cubes.  If bread is very fresh, toast in a 350°F/180⁰C oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly toasted. 

Chop onions, celery, garlic and herbs. Someone taught me to leave the root on the onion when dicing, which is very helpful, as you have something to hold onto.

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat.  Add in onions, celery, garlic, salt and pepper, stirring to combine.  Cook for 8-10 minutes, until vegetables have softened.  Add in sage, parsley and rosemary, cook one minute.  Add in one cup of the chicken or vegetable stock.

Beat the eggs, and combine with the remaining stock.  Add bread cubes and eggs/stock to vegetable mixture in saucepan, stirring well to combine.

Pour stuffing into Rectangle Stone Baker or another 9” x 13” pan.  Bake for 45-50 minutes, until cooked through and nicely browned on top.  If the top is browning too quickly, you may cover with Stoneware Tray while baking. 

That’s it!  I hope that you’ll give this a try, and please leave a comment to let me know what you think about this recipe.  I would love to hear from you. Let’s make great food together!

Sweet Potato Casserole (Video)

Creamy sweet potatoes covered in a delicious, crunchy butter-pecan-sugar topping, this delectable side dish will become a family favorite in your household for years to come! I’ve been making this recipe for 28+ years, and we love it because we prefer our sweet potato casserole to be only lightly sweetened. Many recipes I’ve come across use too much maple syrup for our liking, so when a co-worker came in to our potluck with this dish, I asked if I could write down her recipe. I believe she said it came from her grandmother and, well, who am I to argue with Grandma?

Since we have about 17+ people coming for Thanksgiving, I like to use our Stone Rectangular Baker With Tray, this way I can cover it with the tray whilst baking, and then use the warmed tray to serve my buttermilk biscuits afterwards!

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325⁰F/ 165⁰C.

Add a pinch of salt to a large pot of water; bring to a rolling boil.

Peel and cube sweet potatoes, add to boiling water, and cook until tender, approximately 20 minutes. 

Meanwhile, chop pecans and melt butter. Combine brown sugar, pecans, flour and melted butter in a small bowl until combined. 

Drain sweet potatoes, place back into pot. Mash sweet potatoes, then add sugar, butter, milk and beaten eggs, mixing to combine.

Pour into Stone Rectangular Baker, then add topping, sprinkling to cover sweet potatoes.  Cover with Stone Tray or foil.

Bake for 45 minutes, remove cover and bake for an addition 15 minutes, or until topping is nicely browned. 

Serve immediately.

That’s it!  This recipe can be prepared one day ahead, make the casserole up to the point where you add the topping.  Refrigerate casserole until ready to bake, then add the topping and bake according to directions.  If using the Stone baker, remove from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to baking.
