Gluten-free cooks face a big dilemma on Thanksgiving: cook the family favorites and limit your own choices, or make everything gluten-free and start laying the groundwork for new family favorites in the years to come. We vote the latter option, and we hope this collection of gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes will help you create a gluten-free menu that everyone at the table can enjoy. If you're making just a few gluten-free recipes for Thanksgiving, make sure you label which ones are gluten-free and which ones aren't so gluten-free eaters don't get the two mixed up.
Honey-Bourbon Spatchcocked Turkey
The brine is all the seasoning you need for this fantastic bird. While the amount of bourbon used in the brine may seem generous, it will impart a very subtle flavor to the meat once all the water is added, diluting it slightly. If you want a more intense smoke flavor, add a handful of soaked applewood chips to the grill. For a deeply bronzed, almost mahogany look, brush the skin with a mixture of water and honey each time you go to rotate the bird.
