Prepare to be amazed – you can sous-vide your turkey cuts as far as a month in advance by chilling, then freezing the bags. On Thanksgiving Day, reheat the turkey in the sous-vide water bath and then sear the pieces to complete the process just before serving.
These turkey meatballs are tender and easy to make and have all of the delicious components of a Thanksgiving dinner when they are smothered in homemade gravy and cranberry sauce. This is a great roast turkey alternative dish for a smaller Thanksgiving dinner or a friendsgiving gathering.

The chili rub is full of deep flavors and just a little spicy. It contrasts perfectly with the sweet fruity oranges the turkey is stuffed with. So, if you want to add a little spice to your holiday dinner, try out this non-traditional turkey recipe.
These bone-in pork chops are seared and served topped with a sweet apple cider glaze - a fitting recipe for fall.
