This already looks like it's gonna be another out of this world wellington. Can't wait to see the finished product, especially in that new oven!
Thanks again MJB! I can’t wait either...my wife said I can have it for breakfast but we have pie, so it will have to wait.....

The first meal look great, but that Turkey Wellington is shear BRILLIANCE! ...JJ
thanks JJ, but you get the credit for the inspiration for this one! If you remember on one I’ve my other welly posts you commented and bingo this is what came to me!!! Been not so patiently waiting for Thanksgiving to do it...

Awesome family meal and it is a true family meal as everyone had a hand in the prep.

Warren
Thanks Warren! Yes this was a true family meal. One of our goals with our kids was to have them be accomplished cooks when they go out in the world, well we have tried and have enjoyed cooking with them one the way for sure!

Thanks Eddie! I did a quick overnight brine with an Old Wold Market turkey brine mix (easy, simple and cheaper than I can mix my self). Then after rinsing, pat dry, and air dry, it was coated with Kinders Butter Steakhouse. That’s it. I did a test run with two whole mini birds last week and they came out tasty so it was game on for the big bird!

Got hungry waiting for lunch to get here so had to make a mid morn snack.....

Ritz cracker then a layer of my wife’s green onion cheese ball (Cream cheese, green onion, Dijon, Worcestershire, seasonal salt, rolled in sliced almonds then a slice of left over prime rib which has been lightly torched to melt the marbling (this makes it glisten!) and topped with a fresh thyme sprig....Simple but over the top yum yum!

plated with some mash and gravy from the smoked two turkey stock, and some greens that were blanched for 3 min, ice bath, then pan seared with butter, classic olive, salt, white pepper, sugar, and white wine.

Overall very tasty, the dressing soaked up all the turkey juices and tuned in to a stuffing texture, so it was a very classics turkey day meal!

Another awesome looking plate! Although I'm not a huge dessert person... another plate with more turkey taters and gravy is a fine dessert!
