"Turkey" and Dressing -- A Trial Run for Thanksgiving





We decided to do a trial run for our Thanksgiving turkey.  I used pantry ingredients I keep on hand to make the roast, the stuffing was my homemade bread (dried), Brussels sprouts (from the freezer), and molasses gingered carrots (from my home canned carrots).  This was delicious and my husband declared it a definite winner for Thanksgiving.  Next weekend we will test a pumpkin pie recipe -- oh the sacrifices we have to make.

  1. Such hardships. ;) I will have to try something similar with my carrots; I've done honey and ginger but never molasses.

    1. I love molasses and ginger combined. Maple syrup works well, too. Doesn't take much to give that slight sweetness.

  2. How did you make the "turkey"?

    1. It has vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, seasonings (like poultry seasoning blend, etc), broth, olive oil, etc. It isn't hard to make. The texture reminds me of a processed loaf turkey.
