Our Best Mashed Potato Recipes | MyRecipes

So for the mashed potatoes. I intend to have more mashed and baked vegetables on the buffet, but mashed potatoes should be considered an important responsibility.

As of the moment I am already in negotiation over the 25 choices on the list and my kitchen has advised me not to discuss the choices. I am letting it be known that this primary choice is definitely going on the top 5 overall whether anyone disagrees with me or not. After that, I guess everything needs to be reviewed and discussed — sure.

I know we’ve already chosen Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Mashed Potatoes with Greens and Triple Onion Mashed Potatoes and Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes — which gives us a good five choices, except that I think the problem is there are another 2 or 3 in contention for the full list.

We’ll see.

This picture is of Creamiest Mashed Potatoes — my own first choice.

How to Make Rich, Flavorful Gravy Using Bouillon Cubes | MyRecipes

I’m going to ask my kitchen to oblige me with an extra gravy which is plain, besides any other accessories to the banquet buffet in final, so I am putting this up for election to that cause.

There’s also a mashed potato recipe and more gravy recipes in links on the page that should be counted in. I am posting the mashed potatoes here today. (The extra gravy recipes you can study for yourself).

Gordon’s Christmas roast goose recipe | BBC Good Food

Beginning with Gordon Ramsay’s recipe, there are at least four goose recipes on this link page. I seem to have a preference for them all. Seriously, I would intend that having the room and the large ambition enough for this recipe, the kitchen in assignment of all the tasks would design a method of making the four recipes come together in presentation.

This is a honey-lemon, five-spice goose with sage, parsley and thyme herbs of no more than 12 pounds.

The other three on the page are, Roast Goose with Potato Stuffing and Classic Roast Goose with Cider Gravy and a Roast Goose with Rosemary and Thyme and Roast Vegetables.

Personally, I couldn’t make a decision between the three. It would need to choose itself over the course of pulling together all the menu fare or otherwise, to pull together all four recipes in presentation of the entire menu — either/or. We’re dreaming.

Classic Roast Turkey With Herbed Stuffing and Old-Fashioned Gravy recipe | Epicurious.com

I’m seeing this is an excellent presentation for the center stage bird. He’s a turkey and also ready stuffed. I”m hoping to get him up to 24 pounds. I will leave the presenters at the banquet hall to set it up into motion for serving; I’m just the menu girl.

There are going to be more and other entree proteins. But I’m beginning with the center attraction. So now that’s also done, except for the apps that belong with the beast.

How to Cook Wild Goose | Outdoor Life

There is a recipe on this page for goose liver pate — I am going to request this for my banquet menu along with some gravy in particular made extra. That should be on today or tomorrow’s page (the gravy, besides this).

I am putting this recipe up because it is my research for a large goose. Short story I can’t really explain well. Both myself and my mother were stymied by this just recently, since we haven’t done the Christmas Goose thing in too many years and when we have a Christmas bird, it’s an excessively large — like 24 pound turkey to seem like a goose. Researching the goose recipe, because, well the story goes on too long, I have to now — I can’t find a large goose recipe — this would be the order of a 24 pound bird at least answering to the name. You need to turn your oven into giant form for it and sit with the bird all day and clear the kitchen. You bet! But this is also sort of a dream menu. So I wanted to include it. Unfortunately, we’re Italians and apparently out of touch seriously with other Christmas Goose traditions, predominantly those these days which are English or Scandinavian or Asian and the large goose centerpiece in December has apparently gone out of style everywhere else but at home in Rome. I am out of touch, but I’m glad to say, so is my mother. This makes me feel a little better. Sadly, I don’t know how to serve a 10 pound goose to the centerpiece. There’s probably some way, but it’s too much work for me to learn. So I’m passing off the goose, for goose liver pate and also for a later kitchen question, how goose might become a greasy-spoon appetizer on the menu later. So: open to the goose issue; which I will say certainly amplifies to duck as well; so that, the centerpiece turkey will have it’s day with geese and duck specialities.

I’m not going to be more specific because I don’t see there’s really a point. The general direction of the suggestions can put anyone on their way to completion, but before the entire “banquet menu” story is over, I will surely put up a goose and duck recipe, each; out of which, I suppose these appetizers will be drawn.

Well. Although these are Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipes, I will use them for my Christmas Banquet Menu, because I am going to find a recipe for a Goose, for the center-table. I intend to anyway. And if I can’t, I am going to have a large bird center table. That’s to come.

I will be using more than one of these recipes for the buffet. There are 30 in total and I like them all, but I can’t choose just one for this large banquet hall menu. So I’m using the following and then I can say I have my stuffing buffet done! Happy for that!

#1 – Classic Herb Stuffing; #4 – Smokey Chorizo Stuffing; #12 – Tri-Pepper Chorizo Stuffing; #14 – Stuffing Stuffed Onions; #22 – Slow Cooker Wild Rice and Mushroom Stuffing; #23 – Linguica Sausage Stuffing with Mushrooms; #24 – Herbed Apricot and Pecan Stuffing; #27 – Sausage and Bread Stuffing; #29 – Apple, Cranberry and Pecan Stuffing
