I always make thick crust turkey ham, instead of glazed ham for the last meal of IF periods for Advent. It has been factored by quite an important line from my own family tradition, tweaked by my liking and adapted to my partner’s taste. This batch has been a favorite of mine for a while.
Aromatic, lean, full flavored, tangy, slightly smoky, not greasy or sugary and truly savory. To top it off, it likely crosses between melting away and melting in the mouth. It’s called buttery texture. You can keep your carving knives for another dinner, I mean it. All you need would be a fork for carving and a knife for bread in making a good serve.
I highly recommend going it with Béarnaise sauce. This is the only case I made the sauce by myself! Absolutely goes nicely with the ham. Extra tarragon version of Béarnaise sauce mostly works for my people, you could take a shot!
And then, with fresh and refreshing accompaniments, it will add up to a square meal for the holidays. You could take a shot! Particularly, great for foodies who are not used to cooking at home during holidays. Simple ingredients, less time taking food relatively and low carb & fat friendly dish. With take out food or classic Christmas dishes, you can keep your holidays well balanced in moderation.
Even if this is not a thing to you, you still could get little tips for your festive season dinner ideas. If needed, see attached. The 2nd one will be yours.
The last day of my Advent tea calendar.
Green tea, cassia, licorice root, aniseed, star anise, coconut flakes, vanilla flavoring, white cornflowers and pink peppercorns.
