3 of the Best Non Traditional Turkey Recipes

Turkey is such a versatile bird to cook. There’s so much you can do with it! Turkeys don’t offer much flavor on their own, so it’s up to you to make the flavor happen. You can do this by rubbing the bird with a variety of spices, stuffing it, brining it, basting it, and more. We’ve chosen some non traditional turkey recipes from the Forq app to get your creative juices flowing! Don’t be shy; something new this holiday season with your turkey.

3 of the Best Non Traditional Turkey Recipes

1. Good Eats Roast Turkey

This Good Eats Roast Turkey will not disappoint! This recipe will give you steps and ingredients to brine the turkey before the big day. Brining can make a bird taste amazing and keep in moisture. However, taking a bird in and out of a 5 gallon bucket can be difficult, so this recipe may not be for everyone. But at least you know it will be very well-seasoned!

2. Smoked Turkey

The only special ingredient you’ll need for this Smoked Turkey is the right tool: a smoker. Smoking a turkey is arguably the easiest way to give your bird delicious flavor. Rub on the spices, then leave it in the smoker and let it do its thing! You should only have to check on it a few times, freeing you up to focus on other aspects of your dinner.

3. Evil Turkey

Don’t let the name fool you, the taste of this turkey is heavenly! This is one of the non traditional turkey recipes that is bursting with unique flavor. Evil Turkey takes in all the flavors from the pepper rub to create something like you have never tasted before. If you’re looking for something non-traditional, this is it!

Turkey Roasting Tips

  • Make sure to get your turkey in advance! You don’t want to be left without a bird. If you’re looking to buy from somewhere other than the grocery store, make sure to order it weeks in advance.
  • Don’t get left with an unthawed bird! Give yourself enough time to defrost your turkey. Do it in the fridge and allow 1 day per 4 pounds of bird.
  • Make sure you have everything you need for the meal, including a thermometer to check the turkey.
  • If you’re cooking a large bird, make sure it’ll fit in your pan. It may seem silly, but it’s happened before!

6 of the Best Fall Apple Recipes

The fall is here! For some of us, it means chilly weather and changing leaves. If you’re south like me, you unfortunately don’t get any of that! However, we can all get the flavors of fall. One of my favorite fall flavors and ingredients is apple. Make it sweet with brown sugar or savory by adding it to pork. If you’re lucky enough to have apple orchards within driving distance, take the trip to stock up and try some fall apple recipes!

2. Warm Apple Pie Bread with Cinnamon

What could be more comforting on a fall morning than Warm Apple Pie Bread with Cinnamon? Imagine eating a slice with your coffee or tea as you prepare yourself for a day ahead. The apple chunks in this bread is my favorite part!

5 of the Top Fall Flavors We’re So Excited Are Back

Let’s face it, as much as we don’t want summer to end, we can’t wait for fall! If you’re lucky enough to be in an area where the leaves change, you’ll see the greenery slowly shifting to brilliant shades of red and yellow. As the leaves begin to fall, you can see their brilliant colors being carried through the crisp autumn air. Fall weather means cozy sweaters, bonfires, apple picking, and tasty fall flavors! Yes, this means that Pumpkin Spice Lattes will be back and pumpkin Oreos will be donning the grocery store shelves, but let’s not forget about all the other tasty fall flavors we know and love!

The Forq app is filled with tons of recipes for tasty fall flavors! Scroll through to find some, or add your own!

1. Apple

Apple absolutely screams fall! Whether you’re looking for something sweet like apple pie or savory like a Honey Apple Cinnamon Pork Roast, fall flavors shine through anything that has apples in it. With freshly picked apples flooding the grocery stores, there will be no shortage of the main ingredient to these recipes!

2. Butternut Squashfall flavors

Sometimes butternut squash can be intimidating because it’s so difficult to peel and cube, but you can easily buy it pre-cubed at your local grocery store! After that, it’s incredibly easy to make and can be a delicious sweet side dish to any meal you’re making. Try Oven-Roasted Butternut Squash as an easy recipe filled with fall flavors!

3. Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are similar in taste and texture to butternut squash, and have just as much fall flavors! You can bake them just as you would a regular potato in the oven or microwave, or pre-slice them and spice them up. A fall-inspired sweet potato recipe are these Gingered Sweet Potatoes. Ginger has a bold and almost spicy flavor that is perfect for fall. Add it to sweet potatoes and you have perfection!

4. Caramel

Perhaps it’s that caramel and apple goes together just as well as peanut butter goes with jelly, but I can’t bite into this decadent sweet without thinking about fall! Have it plain or make it into the perfect snack like this Caramel Apple Snack Mix or classic Caramel Corn!

5. Maple

Mmmmm. Pur maple syrup is amazing on its own, but when you use it to cook, the other ingredients get an awesome sweet flavor completely unique to the syrup. Put it on your pancakes, waffles, and French toast, or sweeten up some veggies like these Maple-Glazed Root Vegetables!
