How to Make Thanksgiving for two

Step-by-Step

  1. directions are in order of what the ingredients are for:
  2. Cornish game hens for two

    Serves 2
    Directions:

    In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients;

    sprinkle over hen halves.
    In a small skillet, cook hen halves over medium-high heat

    in oil until browned on both sides.
    Transfer to an ungreased 11x7-inch baking dish; set aside

    and keep warm.
    In the same skillet, saute green onion and garlic until

    tender.
    Stir in broth and orange juice concentrate; pour over hen

    halves.
    Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or

    until meat is tender and juices run clear.
    To serve, drizzle with pan juices and sprinkle with

    almonds and parsley.
  3. Turkey and stuffing for two

    Serves 2
    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium

    nonstick skillet over medium heat.
    Add shallot and celery; cook, stirring occasionally,

    until softened, 2 minutes.
    Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl, stir in sage and

    thyme; let cool for 5 minutes.
    Meanwhile, place cutlets between sheets of plastic wrap

    and pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet or a

    heavy skillet until 8 to 10 inches wide and less than 1/4

    inch thick. Be careful not to tear the meat. Remove the

    top sheet.
    Add bread to the celery mixture; stir in 2 tablespoons

    broth, salt and pepper.
    Place half the stuffing mixture in the middle of one of

    the pounded cutlets; compress the stuffing into a log.
    Fold and roll the meat over the stuffing. Tie in three

    places with kitchen string.
    Repeat with the remaining stuffing and the second cutlet.
    Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter

    in a medium ovenproof skillet over medium heat.
    When the butter melts, add the turkey rolls and brown on

    all sides, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes.
    Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the

    turkey is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
    Transfer the rolls to a serving plate; tent with foil to

    keep warm.
    Return the skillet to medium-high heat (take care, the

    handle will still be hot); add vermouth (or wine).
    Cook until dark and almost completely evaporated,

    scraping up any browned bits, about 2 minutes.
    Add the remaining 1/4 cup broth; cook for 1 minute, just

    to reduce slightly.
    Remove the string from the turkey; cut into 1/2-inch-

    thick slices, if desired, and spoon half the sauce over

    each portion. Serve warm.
  4. Waldorf salad for two

    Serves 4
    Directions:

    Whisk the yogurt, mayonnaise, parsley, nutmeg, honey and

    lemon zest in a large bowl and season generously with

    pepper.
    Add the apples, celery and raisins to the bowl, and

    sprinkle with the lemon juice; then toss with the

    dressing.
    Cover and refrigerate if not serving immediately.
  5. Corn pudding for two

    Serves 2
    Directions:

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F with rack in the

    middle. Butter a small shallow baking dish.
    Pulse half of the corn in a food processor until coarsely

    chopped.
    Transfer to a bowl and stir in the herbs, flour, sugar,

    salt and remaining corn.
    Whisk together milk and egg and add to bowl with the

    corn; atir until just combined.
    Pour into baking dish and bake until the center is just

    set, about 30-35 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before

    serving.
  6. Gingered sweet potato mash for two

    Serves 2
    Directions:

    Place potato in a small saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil.
    Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender and drain.
    In a small bowl, mash potato with remaining ingredients. Serve warm.
  7. Autumn fruit crisp for two

    Serves 4
    Directions:

    Place prepared apple and pear in an ungreased 2-cup baking dish; sprinkle with dried cranberries and lemon juice.
    Combine the brown sugar, oats, butter and cinnamon; sprinkle over fruit.
    Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
    Uncover; bake 15 minutes longer or until apple and pear are tender.
    Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
  8. Chocolate souffle for two

    Serves 2
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Coat 2 cup-sized ramekins with cooking spray and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons granulated sugar. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet; set aside.

    Cook over simmering water until thick (about 10 minutes), stirring constantly with a whisk.
    Remove from heat; add vanilla.
    Beat egg white and cream of tartar at high speed of a mixer until soft peaks form.
    Gradually add 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
