With just a few hours away before Thanksgiving dinner, I’m sure the turkey experts at home already busy doing preparations and cooking away. If you’ve waited till the last minute to figure out what to serve for Thanksgiving dinner though, and happen upon this post looking for last-minute turkey ideas, then I’m sorry to say that the perfect roast turkey is just not an option anymore. However, you can still serve turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.
Noemi, of Recipe Finder, compiled some of the best and simple turkey dishes on her post “7 Ways to Prepare Turkey”. None of the preparation ideas she gives will mean a traditional Thanksgiving turkey, but at least they are much faster and easier to prepare than a whole turkey roast. So if you don’t mind having turkey
burgers, fajitas, or casserole on Thanksgiving, then head on to the Recipe Finder blog for some great turkey ideas.
However, if you already have a whole th
awed turkey right before you that you don’t want to go to waste, then you can try Chef Gordon Ramsay’s Roast Turkey and Stuffing in a Pan. The recipe is good for 10-12 persons which means you’ll have plenty
of leftovers if you won’t being having guests over for dinner. Prep time is also just 2 hours, with cooking time about the same. And while 4 hours seems like a lot of time, anyone who’s had any experience roasting turkey will tell you that this is one of the fastest recipes you’ll ever find. So if you want to get your roast turkey in time for dinner, better get started or you’ll end up with one undercooked bird on your dinner table!
