The Thanksgiving Parfait

Keep your pumpkin pie, forget about the cheesecake, and throw away the apple pie.  I would like to introduce to you, a real Thanksgiving dessert, Serious Meat's Thanksgiving Parfait.  This beauty was created by Serious Meat a few years back, and has been a standard at Thanksgiving ever since.  It started when Bo became hungry after the 3rd quarter of the 4 o'clock football game.  Dessert wasn't out yet, and the left overs were still on the counter waiting to be put away.  As quiet as a 6'4" man beast can be, Bo Nuts went into the kitchen with two things: an idea and a solo cup.  3 minutes later he came back with the parfait which made the heads turn, some in disgust, but most were in amazement. 

There is no standard parfait, it is tweeked every year depending on what is available after dinner.  The 2009 parfait was made in a pint glass to show off the layers.  It started with a base layer of sausage stuffing, gravy, corn casserole, gravy, turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and topped with some more turkey and little gravy for good measure.  The Parfait has a slight resemblance to a Starbucks Caramel Frappacino, but Serious Meat insists tastes much better.

Look at all of those layers!
