How to Make a Turkey-Shaped Challah for Thanksgiving

Thanksgivukkah has come and gone, but over here at The Nosher we think it’s always fun to bring Jewish dishes into our holiday celebrations. Kugel for Thanksgiving? Absolutely. Leftover turkey soup with matzah balls? You bet.

And so we wanted to combine one of our greatest loves – challah – with a fun, Thanksgiving shape that kids and adults will love as a centerpiece or maybe just to dip into that big bowl of gravy.
