Thanksgiving practice cook

Recommended Posts

Full house on thanksgiving this year, so I wanted to practice with a chicken or two.      This one is 6lbs.    

Bathed the bird, paper towel dried.

apples lemon onion garlic salt pepper olive oil rolled around in a bowl, and got stuffed inside.

injected her with butter, garlic powder, onion powder and some Cajun seasoning.   Used the rest as a paste on the outside.

heated up the vision pro to 350, went to the garage and worked on assembly of the new Curt hitch mounted car carrier, cleaned up, put the tools away.      Grill was holding temps well, lava stone was hot, grates clean, and the bird was placed in the center for just under 2 hours.

nice and moist, tasty, crispy skin, and plenty to eat for lunch tomorrow!     

So, not super healthy but it's thanksgiving.  You should see my wife's brandy/butter

 sweet potato soufflé !      I'll probably baste with the butter mixture through the cook on T-day

you don't want to know.  It will leave a stain on your tablecloth the second you put your fork down, it will radiate out from the tines of your fork, and leave a ring 4" around.

I don't think you're prepared yet.

 

..............I'll get it for you when Mrs Run1stride2nd gets home from work.  I promise.

4lbs of sweet potato

2 cups sugar

1 Lb butter (softened).  She recommends cutting this in 1/2

2 Eggs

1/2 pint heavy cream

1/2 cup Brandy (I recommend more, drink some)

 

cook potatoes until soft (with skin on)

take skins off before mashing, add butter while mashing

in another bowl, mix sugar, eggs,

mix the potatoes with sugar and eggs

now add the cream and brandy, mix in completely 

place combined mixture into buttered baking dish (bowl, something pretty large)

cook, uncovered for 45 minutes at 400F, maybe a little longer depending on oven

cool completely before placing in the refrigerator   Taste is best if made the day before needed

heat back up before serving.   Takes some time to reheat, approximately 45 minutes at 350.

Enjoy!
