T-giving Unturkey

Finally getting around to uploading this, from this past Thanksgiving....

In any case, we're an all vegetarian family, all four of us -- so what's such a family to do for that elusive Thanksgiving centerpiece, 'ooh-ahh', show-stopper dish, when turkey is just NOT an option?

Why, make an "Un-turkey" of course.

I've been making this annually for Thanksgiving for the last 15 or so years - a lovely savory dish, and beautiful to look at. It's hard to tell from the photo, but it's really quite sizable (sitting there on my special holiday platter). Inside, tucked within the puff pastry outer crust, are layers of sliced seitan and traditional-but-veg stuffing, all slathered with gravy. Isn't it lovely? Delicious too. And a lot of work, but worth it of course because my family just adores it....
