Turkeys and Gravy

  • Moveable Feast

    Roasted Turkey with Juniper-Ginger Butter & Pan Gravy

    Brining the turkey and rubbing an intensely flavored butter under the skin before roasting guarantees a juicy bird.

  • Recipe

    Herb-Butter Roasted Turkey with Pinot Noir Gravy

    To brine the turkey you need space for a 5-gallon pot in your refrigerator. If you have neither the room nor the pot, you can cook the brine in a smaller pan and proceed with one of our alternative brining methods.

    Dried Apricot & Date Stuffed Turkey Breast with Marsala Glaze

    A boneless turkey breast stuffed with sweet, nutty flavors is perfect for Sunday dinner or even special enough for a small Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. If you buy a boneless half turkey breast, it will probably be skinless. You may see bone-in, skin-on breasts as well; either ask your butcher to bone it for you, or bone it yourself.

  • Recipe

    Dry-Brined Roasted Turkey

    Dry-brining the turkey—that is, sprinkling it with salt and refrigerating it uncovered overnight—gives all the flavor of wet-brining, minus the big, awkward bucket of salt water. Visit the Guide to Thanksgiving Dinner for hundreds more recipes for turkey, sides, and pies.

    Brined Roast Turkey with Sage Butter Rub

    If you're planning to make a brined turkey, make sure you don't buy a kosher turkey, which has already been treated with salt.

  • Recipe

    Juicy Roast Turkey

    There's a lot going on in the kitchen on Thanksgiving, so when it comes to cooking the turkey, take a low-maintenance approach. The technique here is fairly hands-off. The instructions are for a 14-pound turkey, which serves 12 to 14 people, but they can be used for larger or smaller birds; just adjust the roasting time accordingly.

    Simple Butter-Rubbed Roast Turkey

    Basting with cider during the last hour of roasting creates a sweet and beautiful bronze-glazed finish.

    Roasted Turkey with Apple Cider Thyme Gravy

    I think a fresh organic turkey tastes best. You can make the gravy while the turkey is roasting.

  • Recipe

    Maple-Brined, Wood-Smoked Grilled Turkey

    Allow a total of 4 to 4-1/2 hours to start the fire, cook the turkey, and let it rest. Have a full bag of charcoal on hand, as you’ll need to add coals as the bird cooks.

    Pimentón & Fennel Roast Turkey with Onion Gravy

    Be sure to use a flameproof roasting pan so it can go directly over the burner when it’s time to make the gravy. You can find pimentón, Spanish smoked paprika, in specialty stores or online at McCormick.com or iGourmet.com.

  • Recipe

    Maple-Bacon Glazed Turkey with Wild Rice & Cornbread Stuffing & Bourbon Gravy

    Before roasting the turkey, we lay a few bacon strips on the breast, which keeps the meat moist and adds an edge of smoke. Cider and diced pears cook down in the roasting pan to lend a sweet, spicy note to the gravy.

  • Recipe

    Classic Pan Gravy

    For some, the gravy is the best part of Thanksgiving. Made by thickening the pan drippings and turkey giblet broth with roux (a mixture of flour and fat), gravy is pure essence of turkey. It's easiest to make it right in the roasting pan, but if your pan isn't flameproof, you can use a saucepan instead. This recipe is best with an un-brined turkey, such as Juicy Roast Turkey. If you're brining your turkey, the drippings are quite salty, so a gravy that uses only a small amount (such as Mushroom Gravy) is a better bet.

  • Recipe

    Mushroom Gravy

    The woodsy flavor of porcini makes this gravy something special. Start soaking the mushrooms at least 15 minutes before the turkey is done.

  • Recipe

    Silky Pan Gravy with Cream, Cognac & Thyme
