Kelly & Michael: Superstar Thanksgiving Secrets
Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan ended the day with another Thanksgiving segment. Michael went to the New York restaurant Telepan in order to get a lesson about Thanksgiving in the kitchen from Bill Telepan. Then, he came back to show Kelly what he learned, which was a lot of fun. He had to warm up first though. He said it was time to carry his weight and learn some skills in the kitchen. He learned to make a “simple, savory sausage stuffing Strahan style.”
They showed a clip of Michael learning how to make the stuffing at Telepan. It was a lot of fun, and Michael was learning a lot. He said that it smelled really good. It looked pretty good too. He had to put a lot into it.
“Kelly, you’re gonna love it. America, you’re gonna love it. Doing it all for you,” Michael said. Then he showed the recipe he learned, but he was really, really rushed. They could barely get through a whole step. Gelman was telling them to hurry, but also to be careful. And they had some trouble chopping the mushrooms. Unfortunately, they cut him off, but they did try it at the very end and they both liked it. It definitely looked good.
