This. Is. Happening. Well, only if you make it happen. Over at UnTurkey HQ, we’re taking a hiatus from the cooking, but not from the tech support. Post any questions you may have, and your call will be answered in the order received.

We have Tg on the Saturday after & this year we’re bringing an unTurkey to a potluck Tg friends are hosting. We’re making it today. Wish us luck. Did you ever try Miyoko’s pre-baking method? I’m wondering if we should bake it in a curved container so that the shape is better for stuffing.

Never did that method, actually, and never found it necessary. It turns out perfectly without. A curved container would be worth trying, though.

Good luck!!

Thanks. We tried it & the gluten just sort of came undone with the gravity so we’ve rolled it out & it’s in the oven now. Apparently Miyoko has further refinements/differences from the old recipe that can be found here:


She adds garbanzo flour to the gluten flour & there are a lot more spices in the mix. I wondered why no sage so I added some. Now I’ll go back & add the others to use in the broth & the basting.

She also makes the gluten into a ball. Too late for that this year. OH well.

Thank you for keeping this site up!

Wonderful issues altogether, you simply received a brand new reader. What could you suggest in regards to your post that you just made some days in the past? Any positive?

Howdy! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok.
I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.
