Thanksgiving Potpies
Why do we eat Thanksgiving dinner only once a year? It’s one of my favorite holiday meals, so I turned the feast into cozy potpies. Keep some shells, filling, and stuffing in the freezer and you can whip these up in no time, anytime.Reprinted with permission from Magpie © 2015 by Holly Ricciardi, Running Press, a member of the Perseus Books Group.

Thanksgiving Turkey
When the food magazines come out the month before Thanksgiving, all you see on the covers are the huge, golden brown, perfect-looking turkeys. I have trouble believing that they taste as good as they look. Turkeys have a variety of different muscles that require different cooking methods to be served at their peak. As a chef, I prefer to break down my turkey and serve each part at the height of its flavor rather than carry a whole bird to the table. So I’ve broken it down for you here.The drumsticks are smoked and then roasted for maximum tenderness and flavor. The thighs and wing flats are braised with a white mirepoix until they are so tender and juicy they practically melt in your mouth. Finally, the breasts are injected with a flavorful marinade made with mayonnaise. I love this technique because the mayonnaise doesn’t liquefy and run out of the meat; it stays in there throughout the marinating period and oven time, so you end up with moist, juicy, perfectly seasoned white meat. This is one turkey dinner that is much more than the sum of its parts.HOME: Recipes to Cook with Family and Friends courtesy Little, Brown and Company Copyright © 2015 by Bryan Voltaggio

Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Tacos
If you have loads of leftover turkey and you’re not sure what to do with it, you can use turkey in your next taco recipe. Make a cranberry and tomatillo chutney (using your leftover cranberry sauce, of course) and you’ll have a hearty and delicious post-Thanksgiving lunch option.

Thanksgiving Turkey Gravy
There’s no such thing as Thanksgiving without gravy. Instead of using flour to thicken my gravy, I use tapioca starch. It’s a softer thickener that doesn’t solidify, so I never run the risk of gravy that tastes like pudding. I like a judicious amount of cream in my sauce; I think it makes everything taste that much better. This gravy is smooth and delicious, especially if you take the time to make your own stock. Even better, it’s easy to whip together, which is good because it’s the last thing I make before I sit down at the table.HOME: Recipes to Cook with Family and Friends courtesy Little, Brown and Company Copyright © 2015 by Bryan Voltaggio.

I'm proud to say that I've never cooked a turkey the traditional way in my entire life. Here’s why: When you break down the whole bird into parts, you can cook each part in the most forgiving and painless way possible. Simply brine and smoke the breast and marinate and braise the legs, and boom — it's done! When it comes time to serve that bird, you’ll be the hero who cooked a juicy, tender Thanksgiving turkey that everyone will talk about for years to come. I’ll be damned if anyone cooks a whole turkey again after trying this process. — Adam SappingtonRecipes and Photos from HEARTLANDIA by Adam and Jackie Sappington.
