Thanksgiving dinner help live from the Canadian Living Test Kitchen

Wondering how to cook your turkey, which stuffing to serve for Thanksgiving if you've got a gluten-free guest or how to handle any other Thanksgiving dinner dilemmas? We've got answers!


On Tuesday, October 8, 2013, the Canadian Living Test Kitchen tackled all your questions about how to cook a turkey in our Google+ Hangout. Here's what they said:




And here's the recipes they mentioned: Annabelle pointed out that gravy can fix a lot. Here's our Foolproof Gravy. We also discussed brining the turkey, so try our Cider-Brined Turkey with Gravy.  Bacon and its place in the meal came up, and our Test Kitchen suggests you add it to a side. Try our Bacon Apple Stuffing with Chestnuts. Sausage stuffing came up too: Shallot Sausage Stuffing.

If you want to learn how to carve a turkey, watch our how-to video here, and carve it in the kitchen so you don't feel stressed.

Also, a mystery solved: It's stuffing if you stuff it into the turkey; it's dressing if you cook it in a separate dish.
