Jamie's Ultimate Kosher Thanksgiving Menu

Because we eat with our eyes and learn how to cook by watching videos I’ve got the ULTIMATE KOSHER THANKSGIVING MENU featuring incredible Turkey Day videos and recipes right here.

KOSHER THANKSGIVING TURKEY WITH GARLIC SCHMALTZ

The secret to perfectly cooked, succulent, moist, Thanksgiving Turkey is… in this video!!!!

TERIYAKI GLAZED ROAST TURKEY

This one isn't quite as traditional, but you get a little more hands on instruction and a unique flavor for your turkey dinner. 

APPLE, DATE, AND CHALLAH STUFFING

Cause challah makes the best stuffing. Unless you prefer cornbread. Which also makes the best stuffing (Honey-Cornbread Stuffing) but pretty much requires that you make homemade non-dairy cornbread. Which brings me right back to challah, which of course you can make from scratch, put those leftover scraps to good use, or buy a few loaves of challah and call it a (Turkey!) day.

WHOLE WHEAT CHALLAH STUFFING WITH DRIED CRANBERRIES AND SAGE

Another way to make challah stuffing, this video is a bit older and longer, but it's still my favorite recipe. 

BEST EVER GRAVY

A simple gravy with only 4 ingredients.  You don't even need the turkey drippings for this one, it's vegetarian and so delicious. 

PORCINI GRAVY

Porcini Mushroom Gravy

Smother that bird in my Rich Porcini Turkey Gravy. Totally ok, BTW, to eat this gravy like a soup, with a spoon.

HASSELBACK SPICY CARROTS

Hasselback Spicy Roasted Carrots

DO make extra so you can snatch a few straight from the roasting pan.

CELERY ROOT ROASTED GARLIC MASHED POTATOES

CELERY ROOT ROASTED GARLIC MASHED POTATOES

DO exercise quality control and taste this creamy (you won’t believe it’s non-dairy) mash.

PAREVE GREEN BEEN CASSEROLE

DO NOT scoop a spoonful before serving (however tempted you might be) cause it ain’t pretty to serve this with a portion missing. (See above for pre-Thanksgiving dinner, tasting opportunities.)

ULTIMATE PUMPKIN PIE

The ultimate meringue topped pie should NOT intimidate you. That’s NEVER my intention. If a blow torch scares the stuffing out of you, top with store-bought kosher marshmallows and pop under the broiler for a few.

PUMPKIN BABKA

My two loves and lives converge in this unforgettable marriage of trendy ingredient meets Jewish classic dessert. Mazel tov, it’s a shidduch!
