Thanksgiving Classics – Healthy Alternatives to Classic Recipes
Happy Thanksgiving! I put together a couple of recipes that are full flavored, healthy alternative to Thanksgiving classics: Sweet Potatoes and Sausage Stuffing. I shared these recipes with Mark Wright from Fox Q13 Morning News, I hope you enjoy the segment and these delicious Thanksgiving recipes!
I enlisted a couple of expert wine tasters (okay, they were my good friends, but they love wine all the same) to help pair some of Chateau Ste Michelle’s delicious wines with my Thanksgiving recipes. I love to try several different varietals of wines with each recipe, I have my friends sample each dish with each wine and see which ones they think pair best. Chateau Ste Michelle is one of my favorite wines, and I’m very thankful to them for providing the wine for my Thanksgiving segment.
It’s a lot of fun and it’s amazing how different wines taste so different with each dish! The results were almost unanimous, here are my suggested pairings:
Sweet Potato Mash – Pairs well with the Chateau Ste Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon.
Butternut Squash and Sausage Stuffing – Pairs well with the Eroica Riesling.
I’ll be back on Q13 in December for a Christmas Party segment and then sharing some fun, delicious New Year’s recipes and drinks!
