Famous for their tailgating parties, Midwesterners know how to throw a tasty Thanksgiving, too.
In an homage to the Upper Midwest, the turkey in this flavor-packed menu has a mustard-herb butter rubbed under the skin, and the gravy is enhanced with mustard and beer. The bread stuffing is loaded with tasty morsels (ham, kale, dried cherries, parsnips), reflecting Midwest’s agricultural bounty. Rustic mashed potatoes and fresh pear pie round out the feast.
