Get your Thanksgiving requests in!

I am totally astonished that it’s already November. Where did fall go? Heck, where did the SUMMER go?! Well, whether we are ready or not, Thanksgiving will be here in a few short weeks. Ahh, the day of eating copious amounts of food, watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and football, and then getting up super early the next day to start Christmas shopping. Brace yourself – the holidays are just about here!

With Thanksgiving first up, I want to share recipes with you that YOU are interested in. There are a number that I’m already planning, but for the remainder of the month, it’s readers’ choice. YOU tell ME what you need recipes for. And I will do my best to help out the majority with their turkey day menu. Sound good? Just leave me a comment letting me know what recipe(s) you’d like to see featured here leading up to Thanksgiving.

And while we’re at it, do you have any Thanksgiving holiday traditions? I’d love to hear about them!

    I second the idea about turkey leftovers, and I would also like to see a rice-based stuffing recipe. My mom made one years ago, and she doesn’t remember what she did, but it was delicious. I suspect that my mom used a rice-a-roni base or something boxed like that, but you can surely do far better than that!

    We always have the same standard Thanksgiving fare for dinner. Since he was a little kid, my husbands family has always made teddy bear shaped pancakes to decorate with M&Ms and sprinkles. We participated the whole time we were dating and the early years of of marriage but since we are hosting for my family’s dinner this year we won’t be able to go. Since my son is old enough to participate now we will just have to do it at home instead.

    How about an interesting salad with salad greens/lettuce? Something using “fall” ingredients…it may be the only healthy thing on our plates! As for tradition – the day after Thanksgiving, if there is turkey left over, we make Hot Brown sandwiches. Great sandwich and a great way to use up turkey.

    My thanksgiving menu is missing an easy appetizer or festive cocktail that won’t fill you up before the big event. I love yams but, don’t want them dripping in sugar. Is there a way to make the yam flavor more prominent then the sugar? Some type of pudding side … corn or sweet potato?

    How about an interesting pumpkin pie? I have friends coming over, aside from my MIL (who has stomach problems and is picky and just wants the usual). My friend asked me to bake a pumpkin pie, aside from all the other stuff I am making. I intend to anyway. I made a new one from King Arthur with an oatmeal crust a couple of weeks ago and found the crust to be too thick but the filling was wonderful. Very plain but really good. My friends are adventurous, like I am so I want to make something interesting. Any suggestions would be great.

    I’m echoing Melissa C.’s first suggestion for how to cook a turkey. I find the idea of roasting a chicken or turkey sadly intimidating, so a post on how to go from the bird you’ve bought to the bird you’ve roasted to perfection would be terrific!

    Reply

  49. foodlvr on November 3, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    Cooking the bird is the easy part for me. I brine it OR salt rub it and refrigerate for 24 hours. Set the oven to 375. Wash the brine or salt off. Dry. Rub with a turkey rub that i got from Bon Appetit in 1994. I think the recipe for the bird with the rub is still on Epicurious’ website. Anyway, brush with butter or olive oil. Place on roasting rack, drizzle in 1 container of broth in the bottom, and bake for 1/2 hour. Lower heat to 325. Cover and cook for another 2-1/2 to 3 hours (for a 12 pound bird).

    Perfect every single time. Sometimes I also use the Cajun Injector and inject the bird all over with the Garlic Butter marinade. I do that after I rub the bird.

    Also Alton Brown’s Good Eats Turkey recipe works really well too.

      Hi Bettye, I’ve actually never heard of garlic cheese roll grits. What’s the recipe like?

      Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

        Michelle,
        Thought you might like to see my “Garlic Grits Casserole” recipe
        2 cups grits
        1/2 milk
        2 rolls Kraft Garlic Cheese
        1 1/2 qts. water
        1/4 lb. butter
        4 beaten eggs
        salt & pepper to taste
        Cook grits in water until done. Add milk, butter, cheese, eggs, salt & pepper.
        Pour into buttered casserole. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and paprika.
        Bake at 300 degrees at 30 minutes. Let set before eating.
        This is delicious and a very southern dish.
        The only thing now, is that Kraft cheese quit making their garlic cheese into rolls !!!! And several recipes called specifically for Kraft Garlic Cheese Roll.
        Thanks so much Michelle, for just listening to me!!!!!!!!
        I love your recipes and I do try them. You always make me SMILE and also like those Hockey Players pictures too!!!!!!!!!! Keep it up!

          That sounds great, but I’ve never seen a roll of Kraft cheese?? Is it where the shredded cheese is sold?

          Glad you like the hockey pics :)

            Michelle,

            Here’s the recipe:
            Garlic Cheese Roll Substitute
            1-1/2 pounds sharp cheddar cheese, grated
            1/2 pound of Velveeta
            3 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
            1 tsp. seasoned salt
            1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste

            Warm ingredients over a double boiler or low heat, until cheeses have
            melted and ingredients are well combined. Put into storage container
            to cool and set. Portion as needed.

            As, I remember last year, I cut mine into 3 pieces. I only used 1. This year, I’m going to try and use 1-1/2 and see how that works.
            It was so much easier buying the garlic cheese at the grocery, this is good, just a little more time comsuming.

            Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Would love some ideas on thanksgiving appetizers, something for the crew to snack on while watching football and hanging out prior to the big meal! Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Since losing my mother this past March it is up to me to prepare Thanksgiving. I have watched/helped so many times but never had the opportunity to prepare the turkey myself. I am an avid reader of your blog and was wondering if you could help me with preparing the turkey itself. I think I have a good idea but still feel a little lot unfortunately. I know it sounds silly but just thought I could reach out for a little help. Thank you.
