Thanksgiving Recipes to share

I enjoy cooking. It’s one of those things that you do that gives you a feeling of accomplishment. Which is only made better when it’s received well. When others enjoy what you’ve made it gives you a sense of pride. Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that revolves around a huge feast! Here are two of my Thanksgiving recipes that are sure to be enjoyed!

Ultimate Stuffing or Dressing

If you ask anyone North of the Mason/Dixon Line we call it Stuffing, in the South, they call it dressing. As I understand it stuffing goes in the turkey, dressing is a side dish. Either way, it’s a great side to accompany your turkey.

Prep Time: 1-2 hours  Cook Time: 30 minutes  Servings: 8+

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 1 stick of butter or 1/4 cup
  • 1 C. chopped celery
  • 1 C. chopped onions
  • 5 C. Cornbread (I have found that 1 box of Jiffy cornbread is enough for this recipe)
  • 5 C. Biscuit or 1 loaf white bread (I use white bread to cut down on some prep)
  • 1 Tbsp. sage
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 C. chicken broth

DIRECTIONS: 

  1. Prep cornbread and biscuit or white bread. For the cornbread/biscuits make according to the box instructions. Once finished cube the bread (corn, white, or biscuit) and place it on baking sheets. Toast the cubes until light brown. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Set oven to 375
  3. In a large pan melt the butter. Add chopped celery and onions and sautee until translucent. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a large bowl combine cubed toasted bread, celery, onions, sage, salt, pepper, eggs, and broth. Stir until combined.
  5. Spread mixture into a 9 x 12 baking dish coated with non-stick spray or butter. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Serve warm or room temperature. It’s great either way.

Sweet Potato Streusel Casserole

Ok, I know this could be a dessert but it is such a nice side dish and the perfect complement to stuffing and turkey.

Prep Time: 10 minutes. Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes. Servings: 8+

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 large sweet potatoes (clean, poke with holes, and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour at 425 degrees. Remove skins)
  • 1/2 C. Milk or Oat Milk
  • 1/4 stick of butter or Ghee
  • Streusel Topping:
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed (light or dark brown)
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • 1/4 cup butter, softened and cut into small pieces

DIRECTIONS: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut potatoes into cubes and combine with milk and butter. Mash them together until they are a smooth consistency. Pour into a 9 x 12 baking dish coated with non-stick spray or butter.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine all the streusel ingredients. The mixture should have clumps. Pour mixture over the potatoes and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the top is bubbling and golden brown.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
