What is your favorite food...

...on the Thanksgiving table?


Miss Priss over at The RHOK is asking us what our Fav food for Thanksgiving is...this one is EASY for me, without a doubt it is my Mother-In-Laws sausage dressing. I look forward to it every year, it is beyond yummy! If you visit more than one house(like we do) for the holidays this is a nice change...Here is the recipe in-case you wanna change things up this year!

1# sausage (hot, regular or sage)
2 pkgs. (8 oz. ea.) cornbread stuffing ( I try and find Pepperidge Farm but others will do)
2 slices white bread, cubed
1 cup sliced scallions (or onions)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1-1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cans chicken broth (approx.14-1/2 oz. each)
3 eggs, slightly beaten

For Topping:
1 Tablespoon fresh chopped parsley (or 1-l/2 teaspoon dried)
1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Crumble and brown sausage and drain. Combine with other ingredients except for topping ingredients..Pour into 3 quart baking dish, sprinkle with parsley and cheese for topping. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes.

So do YOU have a favorite dish for the holidays?

My Confession for Today: I can't believe that Thanksgiving is only 17 days away!


  1. Mmm! Candied yams! Though my cousin also makes this fantastic cranberry cream cheese dip thing that is a close second.

    The recipe for that is:
    1 bag (12 oz.) fresh cranberries
    1 cup orange juice
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    2 tbsp (yes, really) ginger

    Place all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer until the cranberry skins break. Take off the heat and let cool to room temperature before letting it sit in the fridge overnight. Pour over two bars of cream cheese and eat with crackers (Wheat Thins are awesome).

  2. Oh, yum! I'm going to give the recipe to my MIL to fix. LOL!

    And, what a bonus because I'm loving that recipe your friend just posted as well.

    I hope others will share more recipes. I love them!

  3. Oh yum! My favorite is the sweet potato casserole, with brown sugar and pecan topping. Mmm. I make a sausage dressing too. I include diced apples and pecans.

  4. Vanilla Pumpkin Soup

    1 Pumpkin (about 2 lbs.)
    2 Onions
    1 Leek
    5oz Butter
    1 Chicken bouillon cube
    5 cups Water
    1/4 cup Cream
    1/2 cup Milk
    1 Vanilla Infusion or Vanilla Bean or Vanilla Nectar or
    1 teaspoon Pure Ground Vanilla
    Salt - Pepper to taste

    Cut pumpkin in cubes, slice onions and leek.
    Combine vegetables, chicken bouillon cube, water, salt and pepper
    in a soup pot, cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for
    45 minutes until vegetables are tender.
    Meanwhile, bring milk to a boil in microwave. Remove and add Vanilla
    Infusion or Vanilla Bean split lengthwise or Pure Ground Vanilla or
    Vanilla Nectar. Let infuse for 20 minutes.
    Blend the mixtures in a food processor. Return to pot and warm
    over low heat.
    Add butter, cream and Vanilla infused milk. Season with salt
    and pepper if needed.
    Serve in soup plates and garnish with fresh basil leaves.

    Make 4 servings.
