2023 Reynolds® Wrap Bougie Birds
Inspired by the finer ingredients in life, Reynolds Wrap® is excited to introduce a trio of turkeys that add a touch of luxury to your Thanksgiving table.
24k Truffle Turkey
PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Line a roasting pan with Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil, and place quartered onion, smashed garlic, halved celery and herbs in the bottom of the roasting pan. Place the turkey breast side up in the roasting pan.
COMBINE truffle butter, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder and red pepper flakes to make a paste. Rub turkey generously with salt and pepper, then massage the entire bird with softened truffle butter and balsamic vinegar paste until the turkey is fully coated.
LOOSELY tent the turkey with Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil, then place in the oven. Roast the turkey 15 minutes per pound, approximately 2 and a half hours for a 10-pound turkey. Baste the turkey with pan juices twice during the first hour of cooking. Remove foil and add wine to the bottom of the pan for the last hour of cooking.
SHAVE truffles into wide strips while turkey is cooking. Press gold leaf onto each shaving, covering approximately half.
REMOVE turkey from the oven when the thigh reaches a temperature of 175°F. Allow the bird to cool for 20 minutes before generously coating the turkey with edible gold dust.
PLATE the turkey on a bed of fresh herbs with a generous amount of shaved truffles, making sure the gold sides are up, along with any extra bits of gold leaf, and serve.
OPTIONAL: Serve 24k Truffle Turkey with quick cook mushroom risotto and mushroom gravy.
Luxe Lobster Turkey
PREPARE the marinade by mixing yogurt, your favorite seafood seasonings, lemon zest, Kashmiri, garlic and ginger pastes, salt and pepper together. Place the turkey in a brining bag and allow to sit for 24 hours minimum.
PREHEAT the oven to 325°F. Line a roasting pan with Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil. Remove the turkey from the marinade and discard any extra. Place the bird in a roasting pan breast side up. Tie the legs together with butchers string and lightly tent with Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil.
PLACE the turkey in the oven, roasting for 12-15 minutes per pound of bird, approximately 3-4 hours for a 12-15 pound bird. Baste the turkey every thirty minutes with melted butter and pan juices. Remove when the thigh reaches 175°F.
BOIL a pot of water while the turkey is baking. Reduce to a low simmer and drop in 7-9 lobster tails and claws in the pot, one at a time. Boil for approximately 5-7 minutes before removing, cool immediately to prevent overcooking.
LINE perimeter of a serving platter with lobster tails and nuzzle the turkey on top. Top with chopped parsley and serve.
OPTIONAL: prepare stuffing by adding cornbread, toasted bread, melted butter, onion, celery and pepper to a pan. Cook for 5 minutes, add lobster stock and lobster meat to the mixture and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Serve with the finished turkey.
Crème de la Caviar Turkey
CREATE a caviar-inspired brine by adding salt, water, brown sugar, rosemary, thyme, peppercorns, bay leaves and lemons to a large stock pot. Bring to a low boil until salt and sugar dissolve. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
ADD prepared turkey to a brining bag and slowly pour brine mixture over bird. Secure bag and allow the flavor of caviar to infuse into the turkey for 24 hours. The next day, remove the turkey from the brine and rinse under cold water. Remove any salt that has crusted. Discard the brine and allow the bird to sit at room temperature.
LINE roasting pan with Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil. Place turkey breast side up in the roasting pan before rubbing with softened butter and generously sprinkling with salt and pepper.
PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Loosely tent turkey with Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Foil. Roast turkey for 15 minutes per pound of turkey, roughly 3 hours for a 12-pound turkey. Baste bird with pan drippings 3 times throughout cooking process. Remove foil for last hour of roasting and remove from the oven when the thigh reaches an internal temperature of 175°F. Allow turkey to rest for 30-40 minutes, until lightly warm to the touch.

DIVIDE the cheesecake batter equally between three separate bowls. Add purple food coloring to one, yellow food coloring to another and green food coloring to a third. Mix in colors thoroughly until vibrant.
PLACE dollops of the colored batters randomly all over the crust. Using wooden skewer or butter knife, swirl the colors together to create a marbled or tie-dye look.

LINE cookie sheets with Reynolds Kitchens® Parchment Paper with Stay Flat Dispensing and set aside.
