A Thanksgiving Menu for Bacon Lovers
Posted By Nicole On November 19, 2010 @ 2:14 pm In Holidays,Savory Stuff | 5 Comments
Thanksgiving is a holiday really has it all. A big roast, lots of side dishes and even more desserts. The one thing it doesn’t have (according to my father, amongst other people) is bacon. So, this year, I’m putting together a Thanksgiving menu that is infused with bacon. I know there is no shortage of bacon lovers out there, so feel free to infuse some bacon into your Thanksgiving, too!
For dessert? I know there are lots of maple and bacon cupcakes, donuts and cookies out there, but that might be overkill here after such a rich meal. Skip the bacon after dinner and go with a classic Thanksgiving pie.
Homemade Bacon Turkey Gravy
approx 3 cups turkey drippings, fat skimmed
3-4 tbsp bacon fat
1/4 cup all purpose flour
salt and pepper, to taste
In a stovetop-safe roasting pan, or a medium saucepan, whisk together turkey drippings, bacon fat (bacon fat should be warmed before adding) and flour until smooth. Cook over medium heat until gravy comes to a simmer and thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve warm.
Makes about 3 cups gravy.
