On Massdrop, you can find enthusiasts on all levels from beginner to expert within any given community. Wherever you find yourself on the spectrum, you should always be able to find your answers.
THANKSGIVING It’s a special time of year where friends and family get together to share some quality time. We stuff ourselves with home-cooked food, we reminisce, and maybe we cap it off with some pumpkin pie. And if you’re the one putting any or all of this together, you may have a question or two. Whether it’s your job to prepare the turkey, the dressing, the salad or grandma’s famous sweet potatoes, there are some professionals in our community that can lend a hand.

You can NEVER go wrong with bacon.

Bacon wrapped turkey, that had a brine bath, then injected with butter and herbs. Three steps... You will never eat turkey any other way ever again 😎
Have anyone tried any good veggetarian turkey?

I'm not vegetarian but I eat mostly vegetarian these days. You just need to get over the notion that other proteins are standing in for meat. They are all just proteins and a dish is a balance of its parts.

Though I have had some decent Asian mock duck that was tasty in its own way. But nothing like actual duck. It's duck-like because it's spiced and flavored like how duck is, with a soy glaze and five-spice powder. I can't imagine mock turkey being any good, because what does it normally taste like anyway? If you put wheat gluten together with stuffing and cranberries, then you might be able to get away with it if your guests are forgiving enough. Better to make a wonderful vegetarian spread without the trappings of appeasing to carnivore notions.

Simply bake tofu or tempeh in the oven sprinkled with poultry seasoning. Add some vegan mushroom gravy and bang, in your faces you knuckle dragging carnivores!
Deep-fried bird is awesome...always moist and delicious; spend the extra for peanut oil!
Pace yourself when you accept multiple Thanksgiving dinner invitations. Ugh.
bbq turkey?

So now what do you do with all the leftovers? We take the stuffing, turkey, and gravy,combine them all,add a little stock and 1 beaten egg, then bake covered for one hour. Then serve with a side salad. It’s easy and tasty.
Happy Thanksgiving to the USA from Canada
Good luck all!
