Maybe you're looking to make a statement this Thanksgiving (like: "Yeah, okay, maybe I don't have time to make an organic sweet potato pie and handmade origami turkey centerpieces, but, damn, I know my Shakespeare!"); or maybe you just want to party like it's 1599. Either way, this sweet and savory recipe is a stress-free winner!

Falstaff's Turkey Bread Bowl

50 c. ale
Turkey (small pieces)
Halloween candy*
Loaf of Wonder Bread

1. Marinate turkey pieces and Halloween candy separately in 2 c. ale overnight. Liquid should be absorbed completely.

2. Butter each slice of Wonder Bread on both sides and reassemble into loaf shape.

3. Sit on loaf, making sure that the stack stays vertical. Apply pressure until loaf is reduced to approximately 3-inch thickness.

4. Using hand, scoop out hole in center of bread. You may discard removed bread or eat it.

5. Using hand again, carefully spread one layer of marinated turkey into the bottom of the "bowl," pressing down gently until you have a firm base. Add a layer of marinated candy. Repeat, alternately layers of turkey and candy until mixture peeks over the top of the bread.

6. Enjoy with a tankard of the remaining ale.

*Don't worry if you don't have any more Halloween candy (we never do!). If you ask around the neighborhood, the people who don't slam the door in your face will happily give you theirs.
