Ingredients:

  • Turkey
  • A tablespoon of chopped rosemary, sage, thyme 
  • 3/4 cup of softened room temperature butter
  • Vegetables

Directions:

  • Remove the packet of giblets of the turkey and let it rest at room temperature for an hour.
  • While it’s resting, you can slice up one onion and one lemon into wedges.
  • Season the inside of the turkey with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  • Place lemon wedges and onion inside the cavity.
  • Place a few sprigs of fresh aromatic herbs, like rosemary, sage, and thyme inside the turkey.
  • Move on to the herb butter. 
  • You’ll also finally chop one tablespoon of thyme and add that to the butter and then peel and mince six to seven garlic cloves.
  • Put all ingredients in your mixing bowl. Mash them all up and make sure it’s well combined.
  • To add the herb butter, you’ll want to loosen the skin of the turkey by gently sliding your fingers underneath. 
  • Rub about 1/3 of the herb butter under the skin.
  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and you’ll keep it at 325 the entire time. You can simply place your turkey on top of roughly chopped vegetables.
  • Place the vegetables in the pan and set your turkey on top. 
  • If you’re using a probe thermometer or meat thermometer, place that into the thickest part of the breast or thigh.
  • Roast the turkey for about 15 minutes per pound, about three hours and 15 minutes or until the internal temperature is 158 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In the final stage, the most important thing is to let the turkey rest for at least 30 minutes.

  • Roasted Cauliflower

Ingredients:

  • Cauliflower 
  • Quarter cup salted butter
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Creme fraiche or sour cream
  • A bit of fresh thyme

Directions:

  • Remove the leaves from the bottom of your cauliflower.
  • You can pressure cook the whole cauliflower just for a little bit. Add it to your pressure cooker with a cup of water and set it to zero minutes on high pressure. It just gets the pressure and then immediately shuts off.
  • Get a small saucepan and melt a quarter cup of salted butter and add a bit of freshly cracked black pepper to it.
  • Remove your cauliflower from the oven and drizzle the melted butter over it making sure you cover all florets
  • Then turn the cauliflower over and add a quarter cup of cream or sour cream to the middle of the cauliflower.
  • Add some sea salt and then press the shredded cheese into the center of a cup or so firmly
  • Put the cauliflower in the oven preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. If you’ve never pressure-cooked your cauliflower, which is entirely possible, you only need to fry it for an hour.
  • When the cheese melts and the top of the cauliflower starts to brown, take it off the stove and add some fresh thyme to decorate it and cut it like a cake.

 

  • Rosemary Honey Dinner Rolls

Ingredients:

  • Floor
  • Two tablespoons honey
  • Some olive oil a good amount
  • Minced rosemary and salt
  • Butter

Directions:

  • Put one package of dry active yeast in the bowl of your stand mixer
  • Pour over a quarter cup of very warm but not too hot water (100 F is ideal). If it’s too hot it will kill the yeast so just give that a stir. Let sit for 10-15 minutes. 
  • Use low heat and melt some butter in some milk.
  • Add some honey to the mixing bowl. 
  • Throw in some salt and some finely minced rosemary. 
  • Dump in your flour but not all of it like 75% of it. 
  • Dump in your warm milk in butter mixture. 
  • Throw that on the mixer with a dough hook. 
  • Scrap sides occasionally.
  • When you pull it out of the bowl it should be slightly tacky but not enough where it’s going to stick to your fingers. If it does, add a little more flour and knead it more.
  • Douse that with some olive oil a good amount.
  • Let rise 1, 1/2 or until doubled.
  • Dump that onto our cutting board.
  • Form that into a rectangle but only to help you portion these dinner rolls.
  • Cut it equal to any size you want. Take each piece and form it into a small ball.
  • Once those are all balled up, place those on a lined baking sheet and take an egg wash.
  • Then last but not least you’re going to take some coarse sea salt and just sprinkle a few crystals on each roll.
  • Let these rise for about 20-30 minutes before baking.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 F. The oven’s preheated, put those in the center and bake them for 20 minutes.
