ADD INSPIRATION TO YOUR TURKEY

Our chefs have developed their three favorite turkey recipes to share with you this holiday season. Enjoy an infusion of inspiration on the classic turkey.


 

1. CONFIT OF TURKEY THIGHS
2. SMOKED WINGS & DRUMSTICKS
3. BACON & SAGE WRAPPED BREAST

INGREDIENTS :

 

DIRECTIONS :

    1. Pat dry the legs and wings of the turkey. Transfer turkey to a baking sheet.

    1. Rub turkey with sage and thyme and sprinkle generously with salt and black pepper, lay the sprigs of rosemary on top of the turkey legs and thighs; chill overnight, uncovered.

  1. Heat oven to 325° F. Heat duck fat in a 6-qt. pot over low heat. Transfer turkey to a 13" x 16" x 3" roasting pan; pour fat over turkey, completely covering the turkey parts. Cover pan with foil; bake until very tender, about 3 hours. Let cool; refrigerate for up to 1 week.
 

INGREDIENTS :

 

DIRECTIONS :

    1. Smoke 2 to 2 1/2 hours at 200° F with Hickory, Apple or Pear wood. We suggest Apple Wood Smokin Chips.
 

INGREDIENTS :

  • 2 lb Bacon - sliced
  • 1/4 cup Poultry Rub
  • 3 tbs. butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • Fresh sage leaves

FOR BRINE:

  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar or honey
  • 5 cups of water

DIRECTIONS :

    1. Mix the brine ingredients in a re-sealable plastic bag. Shake vigorously until the salt and sugar have completely dissolved. Place the turkey in the bag, squeeze out the air, and seal. Allow to brine, refrigerated, for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours. Take out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking to return to room temperature.

    1. Place 4 strips of bacon on a flat surface (such as a cutting board), parallel to each other. Starting at one end, place one strip of bacon perpendicular to the others, and weave it through the 4 strips (i.e. over, under, over, under). With the next strip of bacon, weave it in using the opposite pattern from the first (i.e. under, over, under, over). Continue until you have a bacon blanket large enough to cover the top surface of the turkey breast. Try to keep the bacon pieces close together.

    1. Season the brined turkey breast with pepper. Place the turkey breast on the bacon, flip it over so the bacon is on top, and tuck the loose strands of bacon underneath. Stick a few leaves of fresh sage underneath the bacon in spots, if desired.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Place the turkey on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Roast until the internal temperature at the center of the breast reaches 165° F. (Roast time for this turkey was approximately 2 hours, but may vary with different ovens and/or weight of turkey,) Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
