I've made this several times and the last two I substituted beer for the water. Added a great depth to the flavor but the recipe is great the way it is.

I recommend! "

This stuffing goes perfect with Anne's "Brined Herb-Crusted Turkey with Apple Cider Gravy and I just bought all the ingredients to make them both again for Thanksgiving! [I don't care for the apple cider IN the gravy so I sub chicken stock]. When I made the Sausage, Apple and Walnut stuffing last year I goofed and used all my walnuts in a last m"

Those expecting a "cake" will be disappointed. This is more like a baked custard/souffle It is very delicious but I agree a little simple syrup goes a long way""

PERFECT combo of crunchy, sweet, salty, creamy. I didn't have a panini press or a bacon press so I used a small cast iron pan. I LOVE this show. Fun and informative w/ great food. PERFECT!""

Red Velvet Cake is actually a DIFFICULT cake to make well. Baking is science and very particular. The vinegar, cocoa (DUTCH process or regualar)and buttermilk all effect the acidity/alkalinity levels. You could follow this to the letter and depending on the brand of cocoa, buttermilk,etc have entirely different results. The kind and amount of Cocoa...

LOL - some of these reviews. OVEN THERMOMETER. My personal opinion on the taste is that the almond extract and nutmeg does not fit here. Either cayenne & cinnamon, or almond & nutmeg, not both. I dont get the comment on the sugar, unless they used milk choc or gran sugar and not confect sugar. These are not sicky sweet. I have made this and Anne Burrels...

I wouldn't use a cake pan, it defeats the gooey center. I forgot the volume, but I think they were 6oz. I thinkg I bought a set of six for under $10 at BB&B. You can use what I call "custard" cups (small glass pyrex bowls) and even stoneware coffee cups (make sure to butter them well!) or maybe even large muffin tins. The center is the best part,...

Mushy veg question. I was amazed that Anne felt the veggies were ok to eat after 2 hours. I would think that they would have "fulfilled their veg destiny" and end up in "thank you for coming bowl." I was hinking of scooping them out and adding fresh towards the end so we have nice roasted veg not mushy/flavorless. Any thoughts? PS. I havent tried...

Reviewed Brined Herb-Crusted Turkey with Apple Cider Gravy

Nov 23, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

TIP? Last year I couldn't find a turkey under 25lbs (the day before) so I ended up with a whole breast, 1 leg & 2 thighs (10lbs) & hoped the smaller parts would be ok with only a 18-24 hour brine. I finely chopped the veg in the food processor (see Anne's short rib recipe. I don't know for sure if it made a difference. Also only able to dry the turkey...
