This recipe comes from the Thanksgiving episode of Guy’s Big Bite that aired on Food Network a week or so ago. It’s probably the most Thanksgiving-y recipe from the episode, and is almost accidentally vegan with the exception of butter, which is an easy swap. I originally thought 1/4 cup of whiskey wouldn’t be enough and you wouldn’t be able to taste it, but it’s definitely noticeable without being overwhelming. If you don’t have or want to use agave, 1/2 cup maple syrup mixed with 1/4 cup of water would be a good substitution. Happy Holidays to those celebrating this week!
I made a pretty decent Southern casserole over the weekend with layers of pulled BBQ jackfruit, braised collards and of course, mac & cheese with a crisp breadcrumb topping. This was my first time cooking with jackfruit (and also, making BBQ) and I really enjoyed it. I cooked it in a slow cooker and the texture was great, but my BBQ recipe needs tweaking (in fact, the whole thing could use some changes) , so I don’t want to post the recipe just yet. In the meantime, enjoy some photos.
