Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. I love everything about it. Turkey, gravy and pie is all I need in life (Selma knows this already). So because I couldn’t wait any longer, we decided to do a small makeshift Thanksgiving Burger Beer night before we left for Philly to see the fam.
Because we didn’t have a whole day to devote to a proper Thanksgiving meal, I cheated a bit and got some boxed items from TJ’s. I’ve never had their cornbread stuffing before but it looked good so I gave it a shot.
Little cornbread squares.
It was really simple to make. Just add butter and water to the seasoning mix and then pour over the bread squares and bake for 45 min.
Seasoned some ground turkey with rosemary and spices as per usual.
Fry up some patties.
While that was cooking, I made some green beans to go with the burgers. I started by cooking up some maple-bacon in my Le Creuset French Oven. Selma also recently told me she hates the flavor of maple syrup….good thing she told me before I made this dish.
After the bacon is nice and crispy, add in the green beans, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar, garlic, tarragon, and rosemary and let cook over low heat for 20 min.
Oh hello there turkey gravy!
I built my burger with the stuffing right on top and then covered the whole thing with gravy like a savage.
I forgot the cranberry sauce but it was still mighty tasty.
