What are you guys going to make for the holidays? Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I like to change things up. Even two giant turkey meals in a row, if they're exactly the same, is too many.
I've done chinese five spice turkey, Jamaican jerk turkey, and Italian garlic turkey over the last few years. Not sure what to make this year yet.
Also been varying it up between potatoes, sweet potatoes, and squash, though this year I'm kind of craving garlic mash with a healthy dose of parmesan.
Haven't done biscuits in a while either... or corn bread...

There are no exact measurements, it's a taste as you go extravaganza
Ground Beef- chop it up really fine and fry it up
Chestnuts- Unshell and chop, add to the frying ground beef
Onions- chop up and add as much or as little as you desire
Celery- same as the onions
You can stuff it in the turkey, or eat it after its done, these ingredients together just work perfectly

This year I'm going to brine my turkey with Emeril Lagasse's famous seasonings, and then roast it, and a turkey feast can't be complete without the regular trimmings like stuffing, smashed potato, butternut squash with brown sugar and butter glazed in the oven, beans, corn, carrots, fresh baked bread, gravy and home made cranberry sauce. Also some bacon wrapped water chestnuts and shrimp cocktail for apps! Mmmmm I'm getting hungry....

Deboning the turkey this year.
Will roll rice/apple stuffing inside the deboned turkey with breast meat outside and deboned leg and thigh meat inside.
Should cook a 20 pound bird in 90 minutes. Every slice has white meat, dark meat and stuffing

Recently I have found an interesting recipe but have not tryed it yet. I think it would be very delicious!
Marinade for turkey (or chiken) :
mustard 4 tablespoons
0.5 cup of ketchup
a little bit of mayonnaise
100 ml of soy sauce
Coat a bird with this mirinade, leave it for 12 hours.
You should bake it in the oven. After 1 hour open the oven, pour the Juice of half of an orange on the bird and bake for another 30 minutes with low temperature)))

Sweet potatoes and roasted butternut squash are pretty high on my holiday recipes list. Other winter squash in a dish or baked all alone makes me happy either way. Of course, a nice, smoked turkey, homemade cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and some gravy in a sandwich are really really good too!!.
