Time Saving Tips

According to to Pioneer’s Head Research & Development Chef Brian Mannett, there are a few key ways to save time in the kitchen:

  1. Prep. Pre-chopping vegetables, pre-baking bread, you name it! The more you can do ahead of time the better!
  2. Partial Cooking. Some dishes can even be cooked part of the way through, and then reheated closer to dinner time! Simply undercook your dish and then close to serving quickly reheat to finish cooking! This is something my family has always done especially with stuffings, mac and cheese, and corn pudding.
  3. Set out your turkey. Room temperature turkey cooks faster and tastes better!
  4. Gravy. Gravy is a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving ingredients list and not just for the mashed potatoes. Use Pioneer Country Gravy to quickly add flavor during the cooking process.
