Tips for serving a smaller Thanksgiving dinner
Chefs share their experts tips for serving a smaller dinner to a smaller group this Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving, maybe smaller this year. But that doesn't mean the food has to be any less festive, though downsizing the main attraction may be easier said than done. Obviously, a smaller turkey is is a you know a possibility but may be hard to find. Personal chef Jill Baker Ray says It's okay to think even smaller. I really love to do Cornish hands. You know, they're a teeny tiny little chicken, and they're easy Thio do for individuals or for a small group. The other thing I love to use is turkey tenderloin. They're really versatile. And if you are tackling the entire turkey, the general rule of thumb is that you need about £1.5 of turkey per person. Thanksgiving's on Thursday. Start throwing it in your fridge on Monday. We're already seasoned. Want something a bit more low? Key chef Jill says. Try a sheet pan Thanksgiving or maybe an all in one casserole that has all the Thanksgiving favorites in it, from mashed potatoes to green beans to stuffing too sweet potatoes to the turkey itself. For the person that is more likely to make a reservation than a meal, make this the year you order in? I think again this year. Outsourcing is the is the way to go. You're supporting local again with restaurants and things. A lot of them are doing smaller side you, whether you cook or order out, take the time to give thanks for what you do have and the fact that 2020 soon is coming to an end. Dan Gentlemen, NBC News.
