See What Martha Is Serving This Thanksgiving
Roast Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing
This is her favorite method -- a butter-and-wine-soaked cheesecloth keeps the bird moist as it roasts and adds great color.
This will be served with cornbread stuffing, which can be cooked inside the turkey or separately.
Spatchcocked Turkey and Chestnut Stuffing
Turkey #2 will be a spatchcocked bird. All you do is cut out the backbone, press the turkey to flatten, and brush with a mix of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
There's no stuffing in a spatchcocked turkey, but you definitely want stuffing as part of the Thanksgiving feast. This year, Martha's version includes mushrooms.
Parchment Turkey and Brioche & Butternut Squash Stuffing
The technique for Turkey #3 ensures super-moist meat throughout: The bird is wrapped in parchment, creating a cozy steam packet, then the packet is ripped open and the oven cranked up to brown the skin until crackling‐crisp.
This bird has a brioche stuffing, which Martha will omit the chestnuts from this year.
Quite a conversation piece, these cornbread loaves will be baked in a pan with two turkey molds.
For the side dishes at her Thanksgiving feast, Martha will serve a delicious range of vegetables.When roasted, Brussels sprouts become caramelized and sweet.
A Thanksgiving must-have, Martha always steams the potatoes and warms the butter and milk when she makes mashed potatoes.
Raw Cranberry Relish
A very simple relish that can be made in the food processor. As well as cranberries, this relish calls for navel orange, kumquats, and pomegranate seeds. (Martha didn't use pecans in her relish this year.)
Martha will use a turkey-shaped cake mold for her cranberry gelatin, which is flavored with orange juice, spices, lemon peel, and clementines.
Instead of dinner rolls, Martha will serve buttermilk biscuits, replacing ¾ cup of the 3 cups all-purpose flour in this recipe with finely ground cornmeal.
Chocolate-Caramel Cream Pie
Is it the silken chocolate pudding filling or the caramel whipped cream that makes this pie such a decadent dessert? Make this and decide for yourself.
