Creamy Chorizo Potatoes Au Gratin

The Players
4 russet potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 red bell pepper, diced (optional: do half green, half red)
2 cups Homemade Creamy Queso
1 lb. Homemade Chorizo

The How-To

1. Pre-heat oven to 400F.
2. Grease 9×13 baking dish with your fat of choice. (I recommend coconut oil. See where to buy coconut oil.)
3. Layer the bottom of the baking dish with potatoes.
4. Pinch off bite-sized crumbles of your raw chorizo and layer those on top of the potato layer, using half the available chorizo.
5. Sprinkle half the diced red bell peppers over the chorizo layer.
6. Continue layering the casserole with potatoes, chorizo, and red bell peppers until all have been used.
7. Pour Homemade Creamy Queso evenly over the top of the casserole dish.
8. Cover the casserole dish and bake the casserole in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove cover and continue baking for an addition half hour and check to see if potatoes are fork tender. (If not, continue cooking for up to another 15 minutes.)
9. ENJOY!

Perfect Turkey

A perfectly seasoned and juicy turkey. Cooks Illustrated also recommends letting the turkey sit in the fridge for an hour after rinsing off the brine…helps the skin to brown and crisp up.

Ingredients
1 (18 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
2 cups kosher salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 large onions, peeled and chopped
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
1 cup dry white wine

Directions
1.Rub the turkey inside and out with the kosher salt. Place the bird in a large stock pot, and cover with cold water. Place in the refrigerator, and allow the turkey to soak in the salt and water mixture 12 hours, or overnight.
2.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Thoroughly rinse the turkey, and discard the brine mixture.
3.Brush the turkey with 1/2 the melted butter. Place breast side down on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Stuff the turkey cavity with 1 onion, 1/2 the carrots, 1/2 the celery, 1 sprig of thyme, and the bay leaf. Scatter the remaining vegetables and thyme around the bottom of the roasting pan, and cover with the white wine.
4.Roast uncovered 3 1/2 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until the internal temperature of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F (85 degrees C). Carefully turn the turkey breast side up about 2/3 through the roasting time, and brush with the remaining butter. Allow the bird to stand about 30 minutes before carving.
