Same here, love the sides.

I love "Grandmas Sausage Stuffing" and homemade turkey gravy.

And yes, gravy is a side dish for me. I make rich homemade broth to use with the pan drippings. Oh sooo good. (Strained, no parts in it like giblet gravy. I use the giblets as part of the broth preparation along with extra turkey necks maybe a leg if I am making a large batch of broth and chicken parts, onion, celery, some boullion/salt.)

.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have never had sweet potato casserole. How do you make it?

My favorite is candied sweet potatoes. So simple, yet I rarely hear of other families making it. Everyone I know seems to prefer canned sweet potatoes with browned mini-marshmallows on top - sorry to those who enjoy this, but YUCK!!!

Nope. Just toss it in butter right out of the package.

Forgot 1 cup mayo. And the cream of broccoli can be subbed with any cream soup like celery or chicken. I use whatever I have in the cupboard.

PEA Salad

My family loves pea salad - but we generally make it in the summer.

Canned Peas, drained
Hard boiled eggs
Sliced GREEN olives
Miracle Whip and a little yellow mustard


Yum!!

in fact it's a very simple recipe, and it goes in the microwave..so you don't even need to save space in the oven for it. But it's always the first thing to disappear off the table, and always the most requested. Enjoy!
Swiss Scalloped Corn

3 slices bacon, cooked, cooled, and crumbled
2 (16 oz) cans whole kernel corn (drained)
1C shredded swiss cheese
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tab. flour
1 egg
1 (5 1/2 oz) can evaporated milk
1/4 c dry bread crumbs (can use either plain or flavored)
1 tab. melted butter
dash paprika

In bowl..beat egg and evap. milk together
In separate bowl..mix together corn, cheese, onion powder, pepper and flour
Add the egg/milk mixture to it and mix well.
Place in (microwavable) casserole. Top with bread crumbs. Sprinkle with bacon and paprika, Top with melted butter
Cook 10 minutes on MED high...Let stand 5 Minutes

you can halve the recipe if there are only a few people..but around here they like the leftovers even better!
Happy Thanksgiving!
OMG that sounds wonderful.

My favorite has always been the fruit salad my mom calls Ambrosia:

canned pineapple
canned mandarin oranges
shredded sweetened coconut
sour cream
pecans

My MIL makes it, too, but she adds maraschino cherries.

YUM- I could eat the whole bowl!!

Stuffing, stuffing and more stuffing. I've had many different versions and I love them all. It has to be cooked inside the bird though. It is nothing special if it isn't cooked in the bird.

Mashed potatoes that I only make twice a year at the holidays- made with whole milk and cream, loads of butter, salt, and cream cheese - whipped with a hand mixer until there is not a smidgen of a lump - very creamy, very rich, and very caloric. To heck with the turkey, give me these mashed potatoes.

Oh, I forgot about the the mini marshmallows! Those are in ours, too. I think MIL might use fruit cocktail, but I like my mom's better- I love the pineapple in it.

And we make ours even more different by using cream cheese and cool whip with fruit cocktail, crushed pineapple and then the mini marshmallows. Calls for nuts on top (but I leave them off...not a fan).

I also make an acini de pepe fruit salad (I think it's called frog eye salad). It has acini de pepe pasta with mandarin oranges, pineapple, cool whip, mini marshmallows blended with thickened fruit juices strained from the fruit an heated with sugar, eggs and flour (this and the pasta has to be mixed and refrigerated overnight and then add fruit, cool whip and marshmallows the next day). I LOVE this and cannot wait to have it tomorrow (and for several days after).

There was a fruit salad the my MIL used to make...it is pink. It has cherry pie filling, pineapple, sweetened condensed milk and cool whip.

Ditto! I make mine almost the same way, except I use sour cream instead of cream cheese. I call them "killer potatoes" because they are so bad for you, they'll kill ya. But what a way to go!
