Pretty much everybody has a meat entree for their holiday dinners.

If you are someone who likes to try new things, or even just be a bit "different" than the standard ways of baking the main course meats.....you might try these ideas.........

Whether its turkey, goose, ham, lamb, fish, or.............adding a bit of "spice" might be nice!

One of my personal favorites for baking turkey:

I take honey, a bit of garlic powder, and a bit of clove powder (you might have to grind yourself), and pinch of black pepper. I rub this all over the turkey, coating it really well, cover the turkey in foil and bake as usual. The last 30 minutes of the baking, I remove the tin foil, put the turkey back in the oven for 5 minutes, then turn off the heat and leave it for 30 more minutes.

I love this, its super yummie. Of course the spices are all "as you like", so there are no measurements on them.

There are premade spice rub packets you can get at the stores, or you can make your own!

But don't worry.........most of these spices can be used on any kind of meat.
But they may also give you an idea for your own concoction.

A lot of people like fruit with their meats for the holidays.

Some other combos that are usually popular---

Turkey, Ham, Duck, Goose:

-Orange concentrate with cloves and/or honey
-Honey, cloves, and pineapple
-Pineapple, cherries and honey
-Pineapple and cherry glaze

Roast:

-Black pepper, honey, garlic
-Lime, garlic, brown sugar
-Salt, garlic, onion, pepper

Fish:

-Lemon, dill, salt
-Dill, Basil, Rosemary
-Lime, Rosemary, black pepper
-Black pepper, paprika, basil


And, even if you want to experiment a bit more.....
you can add a pinch of cinnamon, allspice, pumpkin spice, or nutmeg to any of the rubs or bakes you use.

If you like tangy instead of spicy, fruity, or heavy seasoned......

Marinate your meat in Italian Dressing at least 24 hours before baking.
You can also use the packets of dried Italian Dressing to rub into the meat before baking.

Italian Dressing is also great for marinating veggies in before baking.

Sounds good! We've got some friends coming over on Saturday so I was thinking I might do some food with an American theme. Problem is that one of them can't eat potatoes / anything starchy (seems to give her stomach problems and bloating) which makes things difficult!
