Holiday Entertaining with Chef George Duran

This year I’m making my holiday entertaining easy by using the right tools to make a healthier and tastier Thanksgiving menu!

Starting with the right pan. This is the Radical Pan by Chef Oren Zroya. It comes with a 3.5 inch high-rise lip that lets you sauté veggies or potatoes, flip pancakes, stir fry, and more. It is inspired by the perfect wave for surfing. I like the eclipse non-stick surface that lets you use less oil or butter. With the finest hard anodized aluminum this is a pan that’s going to last. Works on electric, induction, and gas stoves, and it’s even oven and grill safe! Best of all, the handle uses V-Technology that prevents you from burning your hand. Click here to learn more.

And instead of deep fried turkey, why not cook it 70 percent healthier and still have the fried flavor by air frying your turkey. The Frigidaire Gallery Air Fry range is the FIRST range on the market to include an Air Frying feature. Air fry delivers all of the flavor and none of the guilt, allowing you to make healthier, crispy and delicious meals for the entire family – right in your oven. The powerful fan inside the oven quickly and evenly circulates super-heated air to deliver that crispy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside taste with little or no oil. Click here to learn more.

Let’s talk about one of my favorite side dishes- the green bean casserole, but with a twist. This is my Spicy Almond and Mushroom Green Bean Casserole. I switched out the soup and instead used this new Fresh Cravings Spicy Garlic Almond Dip. They have a whole line of dairy-free dips made from almonds or cashews! From Kickin’ Queso Style Cashew to Creamy Garlic Almond they are packed with nut-based protein and superfoods along with flavorful spices like smoked paprika and chipotle chili. Best of all, they’re delicious! Look for them at Walmart in the refrigerated produce section. Click here to learn more.

One of my favorite holiday tips is to bake with as little prep time as possible and this Easy Bacon and Asparagus Egg Casserole from Eggland’s Best is proof of that! Also, with EB’s Sweet Potato Pie recipe, your dessert will be a classic festive treat for everyone. You see, not all eggs are created equal. Eggland’s Best are the ONLY eggs that offer superior nutrition with 10 times more vitamin E, six times more vitamin D, more than double vitamin B12 and omega-3s. That’s because their hens are fed an exclusive high-quality all-vegetarian diet to provide better taste and nutrition to their eggs. And that means a better baking recipe. They are available in classic, cage free and organic varieties. For more delicious and nutritious recipes, Visit
