What’s cooking for Thanksgiving?

We’re not hosting the holiday feast this year, but I’ll be bringing several dishes to a relative’s home next Thursday. No decisions yet; she has to let me know what kinds of things I should bring.

What is your Thanksgiving plan? Click here for some ¬†fun ideas for easy holiday dishes, from Mark Bittman of the New York Times. I especially want to try the 45-Minute Roast Turkey method. I’ve done this with chicken, and it works great. It’s called spatch-cocking, and it does result in a very tasty bird in a very short amount of time. His popover recipe is very easy and delicious, reminiscent of the Dutch Baby I make on cold winter mornings when we have houseguests. The Dutch Baby is a sweet dish, and the popovers are savory. Same basic batter and method, but if you add savory herbs and bake the batter in a muffin pan instead of a big cast-iron skillet, you get popovers.

If you’d like to share some of your holiday recipes, please let me know and I will “promote” you to Author status here, so you can post in our new Bird Feeder section. And yes, I see the irony of having poultry recipes in a bird-lover community website.

Just send me an email, & I will enable you to post your recipes.
