This recipe comes from our beloved Chef Todd Leonard. It’s a no fuss, take the easy way out, make it while you’re out camping kind of deliciousness.
We are lucky enough to have a Dutch Oven expert in our store. From the first time we tried his Baked Beans, we knew we needed to trust this man and his dutch oven cooking. Today we share with you his tried and true baked bean recipe. Easily alterable, leave out the meat, add more meat, or a couple more cans of beans to make it stretch a little farther.
Stuffing is the iconic partner to the Turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. This stuffing really accentuates the warm flavors of fall and uses all the right herbs to make you feel back in Grandma’s kitchen. Fresh rosemary, thyme, sage and parsley. But we’ve mixed it up with large pieces of sausage, crsipy pieces of bread, and of course the perfect amount of smokey flavor from our favorite Traeger Grill.
Around here we like to think that Turkey is a protein we can enjoy all year long. And when you simplify the whole process by cooking just a turkey breast, it takes all the pain and effort away from a whole turkey, and you’ll end up with a perfectly moist, tender, delicious piece of meat.
Okay, confession, we definitely took the easy way out here and smoked a purchased pie. There are a million things to do for Thanksgiving, and making our pies is usually a tradition we love and look forward to every year. But sometimes ease and convenience wins over traditions.
Give us a minute to convert you to the goodness that is Smoked Broccoli. I’ve always been the kind of eater who enjoys a plate full of vegetables. And that love for vegetables only deepens when the weather turns cool, and I roast every vegetable I can think of in the oven. Cauliflower, check. Carrots, check. Sugar snap peas, check check (try them!). And broccoli, I’ve always loved roasted broccoli. Then we smoked it. I’m forever changed.
Don’t get us wrong – we love a good dry rub. But, sometimes we can be a little partial to a good marinade. They can bring out the natural flavors of your food or tenderize a cheaper cut of meat. Best of all, once you master the basic parts of the marinade, you can create endless variations. Learn the basics of the perfect vegetable and meat marinade and get ready to exercise a little culinary creativity!
