Dunksgiving is a highlight of my year since it’s a time we celebrate our culinary team and the innovative products they help create through the years. I always look forward to seeing what classic Thanksgiving dishes they make using their favorite Dunkin’ Donuts products, but this year I was put to the test and challenged to make the most important Thanksgiving staple: turkey. To help with this challenge, I called upon some muscle and invited professional football player Rob Gronksowski to the Dunkin’ Brands test kitchen to help me make Original Blend Coffee Brined Turkey. Needless to say, Chef Gronk and I had a great time and made some delicious food. Check it out for yourself in the video below:
It was great partnering with Chef Gronk to make this Thanksgiving staple, and I think we both learned something through the process (him with cooking and me knowing to get out of the way when he’s craving pancakes on the field). If you’d like to recreate this dish for your Thanksgiving dinner, the full recipe can be found below, complete with Espresso Spiked Gravy. Happy Dunksgiving everyone!
