Tired of Turkey? Spice up the Holidays with a Culinary Redesign
The holiday season can often bring traditional family recipes that warm your heart and stir up savory nostalgia. But what if you’re tired of the same old thing? Known for updated family favorites and high-quality classic cuts at the original Perry & Sons Market & Grille, owner Chris Perry serves up a few tips for a fresh palette that are sure to bring holiday cheer.
Opt for a season change. How about a maple-chipotle barbecue marinated or deep-fried Cajun bird?
“Trying a new seasoning heightens the natural flavor of the turkey, but also opens up options to serve themed sides that complement the flavor,” Perry said. “Our family often opts for a Texas-themed turkey – cured and pecan-smoked, and perfectly followed by Texas peach cobbler.”
Consider a change in main course. Why not switch out traditional turkey and spiral-cut ham with beef tenderloin or a bone-in prime rib?
“Serving prime rib with the bone in adds a bit of elegance to the table, not to mention flavor,” Perry said. “We always use USDA Choice bone-in Prime Rib, which ensures the meat is extremely tender with a robust flavor that is only possible by cooking on the bone.”
Switch up your sides. For some families, yams and green beans are a necessity. Surprise the family with flavor by adding apples to your cranberry sauce or blue cheese to the mashed potatoes.
“By incorporating new flavors, you can satisfy the craving for traditional dishes, but make the meal memorable and stand out from previous years,” he said. “When it comes to the holidays, it’s fun to play with traditions and create new ones. Sharing new recipes and dishes with the ones you love is a fantastic way to make memories that last far past the holiday season.”
