Was that 4 colors or 4 ingredients?

by zydecopaws on November 21, 2011

Time again for the monthly installment of the WTF meal, also known as the 4-Ingredient Challenge. The four ingredients this month were turkey, cauliflower, cranberries, and flour tortillas. Nothing says Thanksgiving like flour tortillas…

I was apparently challenged at the produce store as well, and confused the four ingredients to mean that four colors of cauliflower were required as well. Fortunately we have a great produce store…

Ok, Pigdog is no longer reading this now that he’s seen that picture. Now I can show a picture of the turkey breast rubbed with garlic and sage, then smoked on the BS Keg for a few hours at 325°F without having to worry about him dropping by for leftovers.

Before you ask, we did take the hair net off the turkey before carving. The final plated meal of Smoked Turkey Breast with Cranberry Glaze, and Roasted Cauliflower was topped off with flour tortilla strips brushed with melted butter, sprinkled with a pinch of salt and ground sage, then baked in the toaster oven. See, I do know how to use indoor cooking devices…

Three out of four diners were very happy with the results, while the soon-to-be (at time of cooking, but no longer) birthday girl decided cauliflower wasn’t her thing.

As for the cranberry sauce, I cheated and let the expert (my wife) fix that; all I did was take the results and hit them with the immersion blender. For those that wish the recipe (one I highly recommend) it can be found in last November’s 4-Ingredient Challenge post. Quick tip: if you intend to turn this into a glaze, you must use the immersion blender right as it comes out of the oven and serve it hot.

As always, make sure you check out how the other bloggers handled this month’s challenge. And be sure and tune in again next month when the ingredients get real stupid (that’s right, I am responsible for the impending December Disaster).
