Thanksgiving recipes...


Wanna play?
I know, it's still a little ways off, but since I usually end up cooking for 20-30..it's never to early to share recipes.
What's the one dish you MUST have at your Thanksgiving table? (please don't say turkey :lol: )

For me it's the cheesy taters...yes I do the mashed as well, but Mmmmm these are so yummy!

1 pckg frozen hash brown potato cubes
1 medium container sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pckg shredded cheddar
salt and pepper optional

Mix all ingredients in a baking dish. I like to put extra cheese on top. Some crushed potato chips on to are also good. Bake at 350 about 45 minutes to 1 hour. You can tell it's done when the top starts to brown.

Andrew, I'm with you. A turkey is pretty, but it's all about the side dishes. And the gravy. In fact, the last few years, we've done chicken instead, because turkey was a lot of trouble. Here's my favorite stuffing recipe, for people who like to make stuffing seperately instead of inside the bird.

Classic Thanksgiving Dressing With Parsley, Sage and Thyme

1 pound crusty Italian or French bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (10 to 12 cups)
4 Tbsp.(1/2 stick) butter
2 onions, diced (about 2 cups)
2 celery stalks, diced (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley leaves
1 tsp. dried sage, rubbed between fingers
1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 large eggs

Spread bread cubes in a single layer on two large sheet pans and let dry for a few hours or overnight.

Adjust oven racks to lower- and upper-middle positions. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake bread until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees.

Meanwhile, heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and celery; sauté until soft, 8 to 10 minutes. In a large bowl, mix bread, vegetables and remaining ingredients.

Turn into a greased 3-quart baking dish. Cover with foil and bake until steamy, 20 minutes. Remove foil; bake until crusty, 5-10 minutes longer. Serve immediately.

My MIL's macaroni cheese pie! It's heavenly! and my MIL's aunt's recipe of sweet potato souffle (which I usually make, these days). I don't have the recipes handy at the moment, but I'll try to remember to come back to this thread with them :)

Karenlyn, that stuffing sounds yummy, I love to put crumbled sage sausage in my stuffing as well.

Penguin...I can't wait to get that recipe, I think my queenies will actually eat it!:lol:
