Chef John's Roast Turkey and Gravy

Rating: 5 stars 382
The biggest myth in all of American cookery is the belief that a juicy, perfectly cooked turkey is difficult for the novice cook to achieve. One of the secrets to a moist, delicious, and beautiful turkey is spreading butter under the skin. You can season the butter any way you want; the possibilities are endless.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Rating: 4.5 stars 2183
Juicy pork chops cooked in cream of mushroom soup, onions, and mushrooms.

Chicken Stuffed Baked Avocados

Rating: 4.5 stars 437
This is a recipe that I hope gets passed down. Everyone seems to like it. We make it as a main dish when I make it with chicken. We also make it a side when omitting the chicken. We will then have grilled chicken with it.

Loaded Vegetarian Quiche

Rating: 5 stars 175
This cheesy, deep-dish quiche is loaded with vegetables, and so colorful!

Vegetarian Black Bean Enchiladas

Rating: 4.5 stars 168
A yummy mix of veggies, refried black beans, and easy homemade enchilada sauce! A tasty change from boring old bean 'n' cheese enchiladas.

Black Bean Vegetarian Meat Loaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
This was a creation based on trying my first black bean vegetarian burger and deciding I had to learn how to make one, then I decided to go for a vegetarian black bean meatloaf instead! Based on a 4-ounce serving, this recipe could be used to make twelve 4-ounce burgers instead of one meatloaf.
