Brett asked for "a Thanksgiving recipe thread in time for pre-Thanksgiving grocery shopping", and it sounded good to me. Also, I'd like to have my traditional Thanksgiving (or other turkey-based holiday) recipes up somewhere that the family can find them in an emergency.
My traditional turkey dinner includes: Herb-Brined Turkey, Chestnut-Rice-Rye Stuffing, Roasted-Garlic Gravy, and Two-Cranberry Sauce with Grand Marnier. The herb brining comes from this Epicurious recipe, the herb butter from this one, the stuffing was invented by my mother (who finds traditional bread stuffing too gluey and greasy), the gravy and cranberry sauce are basically my own inventions -- insofar as anything in a traditional meal counts as any one person's invention.
My recipes are under the cut; talk about your own, trade tips, strategize your meal. And discuss the eternal Thanksgiving question: what wine?
