Five things I encountered today that were interesting, educational, beautiful, edifying or that I otherwise found to be…well, good. None of these are promotions and I do not receive any benefit from sharing them. I just like them.
Thanksgiving draws nigh, so I thought instead of my usual round-up of links from the dark corners of the net, I’d share some of my best Turkey Day recipes instead. If you’re in need of inspiration, look no further!
1) Spatchcocked turkey. To be fair, I’m only trying this for the first time this year but I’m excited and Alton Brown has never steered me wrong once. The final product may look funny and the name may make you giggle, but I have on good authority that a dry-brined, spatchcocked turkey is the best way to go. Serious Eats has a great instructional video if you’re unclear on how this works.
2) These rolls are my favorite part of Thanksgiving. I would just eat them forever. They are flakey and buttery and miles beyond store bought, or even any other crescent rolls I’ve made before. Yes, they’re a bit of work but you can do the cold dough a day in advance and then shape and let rise on Thanksgiving itself. Definitely worth it.
