Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425 F. Place the turkey confit onto a baking sheet and cook for 12-15 minutes. Step 2: Reduce the oven temperature to 375 F, add the sliced turkey to the pan with the turkey leg confit and the turkey jus. Place the rosemary & thyme alongside the turkey. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the turkey is heated through. Remove all the turkey from the oven and keep covered until ready to serve.
Step 3: Place the seasonal salad mix into a bowl. Core the apple and cut into slices. Add the apple slices and dried cranberries to the salad mix. Shake the vinaigrette and add it to the salad mix, tossing until combined. Place the mashed potatoes into a large pot. Cover and warm over low heat for 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally. If desired, add butter and salt & pepper to taste. Keep covered until ready to serve. Place the cranberry sauce into a serving dish.
Step 4: Place the gravy into a small sauce pot and warm over medium heat for 2 minutes. Uncover the sliced turkey breast and pour the juices (as well as the thyme & rosemary if you prefer a more herbaceous broth) into the gravy and whisk to combine. Continue cooking the gravy for 5 additional minutes or until warmed through. Adjust seasoning with salt as desired and serve gravy alongside the turkey, salad, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes.
Sage Dressing: Ask your family members what they want in their stuffing and you will probably get plenty of answers. This cornbread turkey sausage stuffing, packed with chunks of cornbread that get soft in some places and crispy and golden in others, is mixed with turkey sausage, herbs, celery and onions. Serve the stuffing along with our yams as your perfect Thanksgiving sides.
Ingredients: Cornbread with sage mirepoix cornbread stuffing broth turkey sausage yams yam glaze.

One potato, Two Potato, Three or more…the size of your box depends on the size of your family. The organic meal kit service recently expanded to all Texas cities. Ordering online at onepotato.com is easy, although there are numerous choices. While their menu choices change weekly, “picky eater” staples like burgers, tacos, and pizza are always available.
The recipes are extremely easy to follow, and offer an educational and entertaining way to introduce younger children to the joys of cooking. With supervision, they can easily handle many of the tasks.
One Potato’s co-founder Catherine McCord is a mom, an author of three books, and creator of a healthy-eating destination, Weelicious.com. McCord found that involving her kids in shopping for food and meal preparation expanded the kinds of foods they ate. The meal kits are a boon for busy parents forced to work from home during the quarantine, since One Potato does the shopping for fresh ingredients for them.
One Potato boxes feature semi-chopped and prepared ingredients plus simple instructions. Meal preparation ranges from 12 to 30 minutes, and the recipes are designed to encourage kids to help with dinner. One Potato plans are based on family size, how often customers want to cook (two or three meals), and any dietary restrictions. Gluten-free, nut-free, and vegetarian options are available.
Prices range from the 2 Potato ($59.79 for two recipes per week for 2 adults) to 6 Potato Plan ($87.80 for 2 adults and 4 children), plus shipping. For more information or to place an order, visit onepotato.com.
