Thanksgiving is almost here and if you’re hosting your Turkey Day dinner this year, you’ve got a lot of cooking ahead of you. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend three days in the kitchen preparing your meal, you just need to know what to make. It turns out, you can create a Thanksgiving meal for eight in just three hours, with this menu and game plan. Here’s what you need to know.
Roast that turkey in pieces - Cut it into two bone-in breast pieces and two whole legs before roasting to help it cook faster and add more moisture. Brush with flavor-packed melted butter, cover and roast for 20 minutes, keeping that moisture inside.
Serve kale salad - Kale is trendy and making a salad is quick, doesn’t require the oven, and it adds some much needed green to the table.
Roast some winter squash and sweet potatoes - Slice the veggies into circles and add a few thyme sprigs and some red pepper flakes before sticking them in the oven. Drizzle some cranberry sauce on top before serving, if you’re feeling fancy.
Make a skillet stuffing - This stuffing cooks in the same pan you use to saute the stuffing flavorings and only takes about 20 minutes to assemble and another 20 minutes to bake.
Frozen puff pastry is your secret weapon for dessert - With a three hour time limit, you can’t really pull off a homemade pie, but this maple-pear sheet tart only takes 10 minutes to prep. Stick it in the oven when you sit down to dinner and it’ll be baked and ready to eat in time for dessert. And just like that you finished your Thanksgiving feast.
