The women of Mob Wives: New Blood are family women as much as they’re Family women. They love to care for their kids, spend time with loved ones, and spend time in the kitchen, so we figured they could help us plan our Thanksgiving menu out and create a true feast.
We asked them for some of their favorite holiday dishes and go-to recipes, and put them all together for everyone to enjoy. From Renee‘s classic Italian meatballs and gravy to new wife Alicia DiMichele‘s crunchy, marshmallow-y sweet potato casserole to Big Ang‘s Bloody Mary to get you through the family meal, we have a menu that we can’t wait to try this Thursday!
Mob Wives: New Blood premieres Thursday December 5th at 10PM ET/PT.
Renee’s Thanksgiving Turkey
1 (15 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
5-6 fresh rosemary leaves
salt and pepper to taste
3 stalks celery chopped
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of onion powder
1 stick of softened salted butter
2 orange, cut into wedges
2 lemons cut into wedges
1 onion, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together the parsley, rosemary salt pepper, onion and garlic powder and 1Ž2 of the can of chic stock, in a small bowl. Rub the herb mixture into the cavity of the turkey, then stuff with the celery, orange, onion, and lemons. Place the turkey in a roasted pan then pour the rest of chicken broth over the turkey and on top of the turkey smear the butter.
Put aluminum foil over the top of the turkey, and seal. Try to keep the foil from touching the skin of the turkey breast or legs arrange the carrots around the turkey.
Put the turkey in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear. Uncover the turkey, and continue baking until the skin turns golden brown, 30 minutes to 1 hour longer. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 180 degrees
Remove the turkey from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
