Happy Thanksgiving

I’d like to wish all our friends and neighbours and everyone else in the US a very Happy And Blessed Thanksgiving.

Since we are busy packing for our move, I’m not cooking the big traditional Thanksgiving dinner that I usually cook.

Our wonderful neighbours across the street have invited us to share their Thanksgiving with them.

But it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the smell of turkey cooking so we’ve put a couple of turkey thighs in the oven with stuffing between them.

Place turkey thigh in the center of a piece of foil greased with olive oil.

Pile the dressing on top of first turkey thigh and top with second turkey thigh.

Place foil packet inside dutch oven.  Into the oven it goes at 325 degrees F until done.

If I remember… I’ll add pictures of the finished turkey thighs and dressing later today.

 

Edited to add:

I remembered… lol.   And to answer Sandra’s question in the comments, the turkey thighs and dressing took about 2 1/2 hours to cook, but the thighs were still partly frozen when they went in the oven.

If you wanted to, you could place them under the broiler for a few minutes to brown the turkey skin a bit more.

    Wonderful neighbours – they obviously know the real meaning of Thanksgiving! Your turkey thigh sandwich (or sangwich, as my DH calls it, LOL) sounds delish – make sure you post a photo of the finished sammy – about how long will it take to cook?

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all you lovely Americans – eat much, enjoy family and friends, and stay safe! Oh yes – and happy shopping tomorrow, lol!
