Perfect Roast Turkey
November is here and that means it’s time to think turkey. If Thanksgiving means serving up classic dishes, a traditional menu is probably what you’re after. Most folks aren’t counting calories on Turkey Day, but if you’re the chef, you can still serve guests the same seasonal flavors in lighter, more gourmet package. Your family might swear that green bean casserole is a must, but throw in some variety. This spread would feed a family of six to eight (with leftovers!).

Appetizer: Prosciutto with Pears and Arugula

Main: Perfect Roast Turkey
Stick to four-ounce portions and remove the skin — this way you can plan for plenty of leftover.

Side Dishes:
Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives
