THANKSGIVING WITH JONATHAN WAXMAN
What is everyone serving tomorrow? Here’s what I’ll be cooking.
1 Bell & Evans Duck and Chicken
1 pound spicy sausage mix
2 leeks (remove roots and gnarly green parts, mince and wash well)
2 large carrots (topped, peeled and minced)
4 cloves garlic (peeled and minced)
1/4 cup chopped parsley
4 ounces butter
1 cup red wine
2 onions (peeled and cut in quarters)
1 head of garlic (cut in half)
1. Debone each of the birds completely but in one piece.
2. Take the bones, make a nice stock with the red wine, bouquet garnish, 2 onions, & a head of garlic
3. Cook the leeks, carrots and garlic with 1 TB butter, cook until tender. Mix with sausage.
4. Assemble the pheasiducken: lay down the chicken (skin side down), season with Malden salt &black pepper, spread 1/3 of the sausage & vegetable mixture all over. Lay the duck skin side on and repeat.
5. Lay the pheasant skin side down last smear with the sausage mixture.
6. Roll the three into a nice loose roast; use a trussing needle, butcher’s twine and sew completely.
7. Place in a 350 degree oven, and roast for 2.5 to 3.5 hours, basting constantly. The roast will be done when center reads 155 degrees.
8. Remove and let rest, make a sauce from the pan drippings and the stock, add three ounces of butter to finish. Slice and dig in!
Or join us at Barbuto! Happy Thanksgiving
