Friends are family that you choose. Establish a day and time around Thanksgiving that isn’t reserved for family obligations, and declare it Friendsgiving! Invite your closest friends and neighbors for a tradition that everyone will love.
Serve a traditional meal without the pressure of the big day, or have non-conventional meal or sides that make it a fun twist on our favorites. A fun twist on the traditional turkey is to have a fried turkey- just follow the steps below!
Step one: Secure the turkey fryer, an excellent option is the Bayou Classics Turkey Fryer and Kit or a built-in appliance like the Frigidaire Air Fry Oven. Both methods will produce a delicious bird with golden, crispy skin!
Step two: Choose your injection kit, spices and rubs for the flavors and type of cooking style that you prefer. This is your chance to try something new and different!
Step three: Make a meal plan by choosing your sides and desserts to compliment the real start of the show – the turkey!
Step four: Buy several sauces to give every guest options for them to enjoy. Consider having small cups of sauces so that people may try them on the side and try more than one.
Step five: Serve your meal with a fun presentation – from fine china to disposable plates, the choice is yours- after all, these are your closest friends!
Step six: Plan for every guest to contribute to the meal with their favorite family holiday dishes and sides. Ask them to bring printed copies of their recipes to share with the group.
Finally, it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy time with the ones you love and make memories that will last a lifetime. Happy Friendsgiving!
