Roast Turkey with Herbed Stuffing and Pan Gravy

My latest email from epicurious [4] says that there are eight days left until Thanksgiving. Unbelievable how quickly time passes. This year will be the first year in a long time that we will be spending the holiday with family. I’m looking forward to eating lots of yummy food, savoring a slice of Toffee Dream [5], taking a walk (and hopefully a nap!), having another slice of Toffee Dream [5], playing card games while my FishMen watch a football game, and did I mention Toffee Dream [5]?

Anyway, food is such a BIG part of the Thanksgiving Holiday, I could plan the meal 100 different ways – it’s so fun. But, we tend to have some traditionalists around here. Can’t go too funky on them.

Obviously, turkey is a big part of the day, but for me the stuffing and gravy — well, I just gotta have them.

Here is the recipe that I use every year. My copy of Bon Appetit, November 1995, is very tattered and love-worn. It’s theme was “Thanksgiving in the Heartland.” I found a turkey and a stuffing recipe that weren’t too froo-froo. Just straightforward good cooking. Unfortunately, it is not one of the recipes they have archived on their website,epicurious [6].

Due to rising concerns about food poisoning, most publications recommend that you no longer stuff the bird, but cook all the “dressing” in a 9×13 pan. This is what I do now. However, I am leaving the directions as is. And even though today’s theme is “side dishes” I’m throwing in the turkey recipe for good measure.

Bon Appetit!
