time on your hands is rare when you have a full house. 2gether we eat is about
bringing your tribe together to enjoy a meal, even if it means preparing that
meal with one free hand and someone pulling at your leg. Not only do I hope to offer delicious, easy
to prepare recipes, but I’ll also show you how getting your kids involved in
the process can make the meal that much more rewarding for you and those eating
Thanksgiving is not the same without our traditional Hushwee. As other traditions have changed, the stuffing remains a staple. I’ve mixed it up a bit by adding turkey stock and drippings to help compliment the Thanksgiving turkey.
1 lb ground beef
2 cups brown rice
2 TBs of turkey fat drippings
4 cups turkey broth, from boiled neck and gizzards
½ cup toasted pine nuts
2 TBs ground cinnamon
Salt and Pepper to taste
First, add the turkey neck, gizzards, pinch of salt and pepper to a small sauce pan with 5-6 cups cold water and bring to a boil for an hour or so. In a large saucepan add turkey drippings and ground beef. Brown beef until cooked through. Add pine nuts, cinnamon, salt and pepper and stir. Then add turkey broth and rice and stir. Cook for 40 minutes and serve with your turkey gravy. By the way, this so good left over or for your Thanksgiving midnight snack!
