Isn’t it strange how in cooling weather, we develop a singular obsession for oddball, oft-ignored ingredients? Pumpkin. Peppermint. And yes, come Thanksgiving, turkey. Relegated for the better part of the year to sodden Butterball sandwiches and gamey burgers, we all of a sudden take a keen interest in the plus-sized bird, honoring it as the headliner of our holiday meals.
But the poultry has much greater culinary potential than just being served whole roasted and enjoyed for a day, which is why we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving by chowing down on these tasty, turkey-centric dishes!
