"The glaze give a wonderful sheen to the bird. A great addition to the menu is wild mushroom stuffing, cranberry sauce with raspberry vinegar, mashed sweet potatoes, rutabaga and parsnip casserole, green beans with walnuts, date and onion relish, pear chutney, and of course, pumpkin pie and butterscotch pie. If you don't have fresh thyme, substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com." — by Christine L.

"A New England style turkey with maple syrup. Try stuffing it with Cranberry, Sausage and Apple Stuffing. If you have fresh marjoram on hand, use 2 tablespoons rather than the 1/2 teaspoon dried. For an added zing of taste, two tablespoons of apple brandy can be added. If you don't have fresh thyme, substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme.

"This is an old family recipe that we make every year at my grandmother's house during Christmas time. I use it at my home throughout the year as a simple dinner, or make it and take it to work when I know we'll need a snack after a big rush. Steak can be venison or beef. I grew up using mostly elk steaks." — by NORSEWOMAN
