    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    Try this the next time you're in the mood for something a little different for your holiday dinner! It's from a November 1987 issue of Bon Appetit featuring a "Creole Thanksgiving". The sensational Creole Butter helps make the breast meat moist and flavorful and the Jambalaya Stuffing adds to the Creole flavor. You may want to adjust the amount of "hot" in the stuffing to your own heat tolerance!

      Made this for Thanksgiving this year and absolutely loved it. So easy and flavorful. For the creole butter, bring the unsalted butter to room temperature and blend all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. The butter may be made 4 days ahead, covered and refrigerated or 1 month ahead and frozen; just bring it to room temp before serving. Thanks, Leslie! Saved me the trouble of adding this recipe from my issue of Bon Appetit!
