In this video, I wanted to give a behind the scenes look at Thanksgiving in the Altena household. Most extended family holiday meals are done at my house or with my prepping the meals for the 15 people in my wife’s family. (in-laws) Not all of the family members are low carbers, so I typically have 5 or 6 main meal items that everyone enjoys and can eat. I then also include some items that only the high carbers will eat, like Company Potatoes.
In this video, you will see my Spatchcocked turkey (i.e. butterflying a turkey), my favorite low carb sausage stuffing, broccoli bacon salad, smoked BBQ ribs, jalapeno poppers, fauxtatoes, and low carb smoked ham, covered in mustard & LC BBQ rub. I also made a low carb gravy for the Turkey.
In the end as always, the meal was a hit for everyone. They had their high carb desserts to round out the meal, while I had my share of poppers. This meal would work well whether on Induction for Atkins or following a Ketogenic diet.
Note: my sweetener of choice is liquid sucralose, but feel free to substitute one of your choosing. I try to give the dry sweetness equivalency to know what you should try to match, but of course sweetness levels are to taste.
Final Note: I fixed the originaI version of the video that my video editor created issues. This version should be a bit less cringey, but in the future, I might do voice overs with my Yeti Blue Mic if the wireless mic doesn’t get better.
