Holiday Spiced Turkey Breast with Orange Glaze

Jeremiah Doughty | From Field To Plate

When I think of the holidays, I think of sitting around the table with friends and family. Some of my favorite holiday memories are surround by food, or time spent in the kitchen. I have some favorite holiday dishes that are sure to please even the pickiest of the family members this season. We enjoy dishes from a delicious wild turkey recipe  with a beautiful blackberry orange glaze, to a savory cornbread and sage stuffing. Make sure you don’t forget everyone’s favorite drunken apple pie, layered with the warm taste of bourbon.

So grab your apron and enjoy a taste of the holidays.
