It is that time if the year again. The leaves are on the ground (and on my table for decoration 😉), temperatures are cooling, and it feels great to be inside cozying up with our objects of comfort.
I maintained the tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving, and it is very popular among my acquaintances. I always gave a full table of guests on that day, though I move it to the Saturday because we do not have the Thursday off.
But we have the Black Friday! Which I find a little funny. Why Friday? We could pick just any day. I would like best a ”Red Sunday”, for example.
In any case, my guests expect a real American Thanksgiving, with Turkey, potatoes, pumpkin, and all the trimmings. We only miss a very a football game in the late afternoon, and it would be perfect!
- Stuffed Turkey – it will be a female turkey, which is slightly smaller, and the stuffing will be ”italian style”. But I will make the traditional American stuffing on the side.
- Cranberry sauce – I was able to find it here!
- Mashed potatoes
- Roasted Brussels sprouts
- Pumpkin Pie (of course)
Below are the ingredients for the stuffing.
INGREDIENTS FOR THE 🦃 STUFFING
Pork ground meat 250 g
Sausage 100 g
Celery 1 stalk
Garlic 1 clove
Medium eggs 1
Parmigiano Reggiano PDO 30 g
Breadcrumbs 40 g
Nutmeg ½ tsp
Salt & Black pepper to taste
Prepare the turkey stuffing: clean the vegetables and put them in the mixer, and chop finely, transfer them to a large bowl and add the minced meat, the sausage, (without the ”bowel” and chopped), knead everything by hand and add the grated Parmesan, the breadcrumbs, and the whole egg, mix everything by hand again and season with salt and pepper, add the nutmeg, and mix everything again.
Then stuff the turkey with the mix. I’m sure every American knows this procedure quite well, same for the cooking and cooking time.
I’m quite sure that the mix of two cultures gives out great results.
ENJOY YOUR DINNER
I WISH YOU ALL A FANTASTIC THANKSGIVING DAY
