Pasolivo Rosemary Truffle Turkey

It’s a wonderful time for great food, friends, and family. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make this flavorful Rosemary Truffle Turkey to share with your loved ones.

Ingredients:

•12-14 lbs turkey

•3 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature

•1 minced shallot

•1 1/2 tbsp Truffle Salt

•2 tbsp Herbes de Provence 

•3 tbsp Rosemary Olive Oil

•1 small bunch rosemary

•1 small bunch of sage, leaves removed.

•1 medium yellow onion, cut into eighths

•1 head of garlic, halved

Preheat the oven the 325. In a small bowl combine the shallot, butter, 1 tbsp of the Truffle Salt, and 1 tbsp of the Herbes de Provence. Set aside.

Drain any juices from the turkey, then remove the giblets from the cavity, discard. Pat the skin down with paper towels, and place on a rack inside a large roasting pan.

Starting from the cavity side of the turkey, gently separate the skin from the breast of the turkey. Place the butter and shallot mixture under the skin, spreading as evenly as possible across the breast. Gently place half of the rosemary and half the sage leaves under the skin.

In the cavity, sprinkle 1/2 tbsp of the Truffle Salt, and 1/2 tbsp of the Herbes de Provence. Place the onion and the garlic inside of the cavity, the remaining rosemary, and the sage leaves, then tie the legs together with twine.

Drizzle the top of the turkey with the Rosemary Oil, and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 tbsp Herbes de Provence, gently massaging it into the skin.

Roast the turkey for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours, until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast reads at 165. If the turkey starts to brown too quickly in the oven, cover loosely with tinfoil.

Remove from the oven and let rest for at least 30 minutes before carving. Serve with pan juices.

3/4 tsp Pasolivo Roasted Garlic Salt
3 Tbsp Pasolivo Citrus Olive Oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 lb. ground turkey breast

Citrus Olive Oil, then stir in the egg. When completely mixed, stir in

Berry Balsamic Swirled Skillet Cookie

INGREDIENTS:
• 1/2 cup boysenberry or blackberry seedless jam
• 2 Tbsp Pasolivo Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar
• 1/2 stick of salted butter, softened
• 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
• 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 1/2 tsp Pasolivo Kosher Flake Sea Salt
• 1/2 all-purpose flour
• 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
• 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:
Place a rack in the lowest spot of the oven, set to 375°F.

Add jam and Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool in the fridge.

Meanwhile, combine both sugars and softened butter in a large mixing bowl. Stir until smoothed into a paste and no lumps of sugar or butter remain. Add in egg, vanilla and salt, mix until egg is fully incorporated, about a minute. Fold in the flour, rolled oats and baking soda until just combined, then stir in the walnuts and white chocolate chips.

Use wet hands to press the dough into a 10” cast-iron skillet. Drizzle half of the balsamic mixture over the dough, swirl with a spoon. Do not over-mix; the top does not have to be perfectly smooth.

Place the cast-iron on the lowest rack in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are dark brown and the middle is puffed and golden. The cookie will continue to bake after it’s taken out of the oven; it’s okay if the dough is a little bit underbaked in the middle.

Let the skillet cookie cool for forty minutes. To serve, top a slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and an extra drizzle of the balsamic and jam reduction.
