Thanksgiving with a Twist
A classic Thanksgiving menu with a few flavorful surprises.
Here’s a Thanksgiving menu with all the tried and true dishes, and a few innovative twists. Roasted peppers and hominy debut in cornbread stuffing, fresh orange juice bathes the turkey, Brussels sprouts are shredded and sautéed, and crunchy radicchio takes the place of romaine in Caesar salad. All topped off with homespun pumpkin pie—plain and simple.
This turkey is steeped in a marinade of fresh orange juice, garlic and rosemary, which is then used to baste the turkey.
Orange-infused pan drippings give this classic gravy a little extra zip.
Mexican flavors predominate in this alternative to traditional bread stuffing.
Crunchy, slightly bitter radicchio makes a bracing substitute for lettuce in a favorite side dish.
Brussels sprouts are traditional at British holiday tables -- make them a regular at yours, too.
Vary the spices to get it just the way your crowd likes it.
