Thanksgiving Dinner

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I thought it would be cool if we started a thread to exchange thanksgiving recipes. I know that I can use some ideas. Here is a recipe that I found online and I made it once and now I'm doomed to have to make it forever because my boyfriend loves it.

prepare a box of stove top stuffing
fry up a roll of sausage (brand doesn't matter)

combine stuffing, sausage and 1 package of shredded sharp cheddar in a baking dish, and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

that's it. now you have cheesy sausage stuffing. It's a hit around here.

After my second cup of coffee I'll share a couple recipes too.

1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
1 cup Ritz crackers crushed
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup melted butter

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Always a hit!

Potato Fudge

3 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup mashed potatoes
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash salt
4 cups powdered sugar

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat, remove from heat, add potatoes, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Blend in sugar and mix again. when moist, turn mixture into floured board, coat hands with either butter or PAM cooking spray and knead until smooth and mixed. Press into 8" square pan, chill and cut into squares.

A really good thing I like to make that is really simple, and not particurly original, is mashed potatos. Just boil some potatos, mash them up, and add some milk (I use soy milk-if you use that be sure to use the plain variety) and a little garlic and margerine and YUM! Very good. I know I dind't give the actual ammounts but I just kinda do it til it seems like there's enough. Just keeping adding milk to the potatoes til there's a good consistancy, and enough margerine and garlic to your taste. The garlic really adds to it. Oh, and onion chopped up real fine it it is good too. Yummmmm.

Here in MA you can buy the fresh cranberries in the produce section. They come in 1 lb bags.
1. Clean them WELL
2. Combine 1 cup water and 1+1/4 cup of sugar.
3. Bring to a rolling boil.
4. Add cranberries, and lower to Med/ Med hi. Cook for about 15 min.
5. Once cranberries start popping open you can begin mashing them up w/ a spoon.
If you like the whole cranberry version, then just cool and serve. Or if you like the jellied version, puree it thru a strainer and chill.
I know some of you won't be able to find the fresh cranberries, but from people I've heard they are in most supermarkets across the country these days.
It is absolutley yummy, and well worth the time!!
I make it year round ( you can freeze the bags of fresh cranberries for up to 1 year ) and we eat it w/ chicken, pork, and turkey. Oooooooooooooh, its so good. And better than that canned stuff that is FULL of preservatives.

Ok, here's my contribution to Thanksgiving dinner...

4 cups green beans
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1 1/3 cup french fried onions
1 small can mushrooms
cooked crumbled bacon or bacon bits

Mix together soup, milk, sour cream, beans, mushrooms,2/3 of the bacon, and half the onions.
Bake at 350 for about 25 mins.
Sprinkle with remaining onions and bacon.
Bake about 5 more mins.
You can add a little pepper if you like, but one year I added salt, and with the bacon it was a little too salty.

That one just got added to our table!

Just yesterday my son was ranting about how people should have corn on Thanksgiving instead of beans, peas, etc. because on the first Thanksgiving they mustve had corn! He went on to add we decorate with corn, but many dont serve it..yaddayaddayadda!

Ok kiddo, shut it..we're having corn! :LOL:

Grind 2 cups of raw cranberries. Stir in 4 cups of mimi.marshmallows and 1/2cup sugar. Chill overnight.
Next day add 1/2cup chopped apple,1/2cup chopped nuts(walnuts or pecans) and fold in 1 1/2cups cool whip. Chill till serving time.

People who don't like cranberries like this.

This is a single recipe but if you have six kids at home you will need to triple the recipe. I never had much left over once the boys got done with it.
