Main dishes at your parties


At Thanksgiving, the turkey is the center of attention. In the Creole style it is prepared with adobo or dressing of chicha, garlic, cumin and onoto.

No matter how you prepare it, whether roasted, grilled, or fried, it is important to keep in mind that cooking it usually takes several hours, so make sure you start very early so that everything turns out well.

Additionally, it is essential to get the cooking time right so that the turkey is not too dry. Your goal is to achieve juicy meat with a well-browned exterior.

At Christmas the manu is more varied and depending on the region or your traditions you can share a delicious pork ham, chops,



Cranberry sauce

Cranberry sauce cannot be missing at Thanksgiving dinner.

It is light, sweet and sour and has a very bright color, perfect to accompany turkey! It is made by cooking the blueberries in water with a little sugar, over medium-low heat for about 7 or 10 minutes, or until the mixture thickens a little.

Wait for it to cool before serving it and impress everyone!

Gravy Sauce

This sauce cannot be missing from a typical American dinner. It is what gives all the moisture and seasoning to the turkey.

It is made with part of the fat left over from cooking the turkey, adding seasonings such as pepper and thyme and some other vegetables, such as carrots or green beans.

Green beans

Among the most repeated side dishes at the end of the year parties we find green bean recipes, usually in the form of a casserole.

The Green Beans recipe consists of a warm salad composed mainly of green beans, combined with fried onion, cauliflower, carrots or potatoes and sometimes a creamy sauce to give them more flavor, or simply salt and pepper as a dressing.

Mashed potatoes

Mashed potatoes work perfectly as a garnish for turkey or ham. In fact, it also pairs very well with Gravy sauce.

This is a simple and very delicious dish. You cook the potatoes with their skin and without chopping in a pot with water and salt.

When the potatoes are well cooked, remove the skin and start mashing. Then, you add butter cut into pieces and hot milk.
