Headliner Thanksgiving Turkey — The Communal Table
In honor of Thanksgiving, we’re kicking off our second annual Communal Table on Food Network, an event that we opened up to the entire food community. Experts from the industry are “pulling up a chair” to our table and offering readers their favorite recipes for appetizers, sides, salads, breads, mains, desserts and cocktails.
As we near a certain Thursday, we’ve all got the same thing on the brain: turkey. It’s that one dish per year that you simply cannot fail, and the one dish on your table that requires the most TLC.
This year, as you start dog-earing recipes and staking out techniques, rest assured that we’ve got your back when it comes to the bird. You see, while we’re all for the classic roasted turkey, a la Alton Brown’s Good Eats Roast Turkey, we’ll also welcome a new take with open arms.
Enter: Bobby Flay’s Black Pepper-Pomegranate Molasses Glazed Turkey. For added flavor, it’s rubbed with fresh sage and roasted garlic before being glazed with zesty Dijon mustard, horseradish and all that pomegranate goodness.
Bobby’s secret weapon? Chicken stock. He pours it on the bottom of the pan so the turkey steams to perfection as it roasts.
