It might seem strange at first, but wrapping your turkey in cheesecloth as it roasts locks in the moisture for extra-juicy meat. A simple glaze made from orange marmalade and a jus made with arrowroot round out the dish without any wheat flour, which most gravies would use.
Thanksgiving dinner in an electric pressure cooker? Yes, you can! This recipe makes a beautifully moist turkey with savory stuffing at the same time, and all those tasty turkey juices make up a quick herb gravy at the end.
An array of fragrant fresh herbs and a healthy amount of butter infuse a mega dose of flavor into this centerpiece dish. If you like, you can skip making the turkey stock for the gravy (Step 2) — just substitute an additional 1½ cups of store-bought low-sodium chicken or turkey broth.

Grated zucchini adds extra juiciness and a slight sweetness to these crowd-pleasing sliders.
