Thanksgiving side dishes

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Chunk-O-Funk, Nov 19, 2006.

  1. We have the turkey thread. What about the side dishes? Sometimes they're better than the turkey.

    I usually make glazed sweet potatoes. Mater of fact, I just got a request to make them again.

    What's a must on your plate next to the turkey?

    Freshly made cranberry sauce- very easy to prepare.

    1-1/2 C sugar
    1 navel orange
    1/2 t grated ginger
    4 C cranberries

    1. Grate the orange peel and add to a pot with the sugar and ginger.

    2. Add the juice from the orange into the pot and simmer over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.

    3. Add cranberries and cook until they pop - about 5 minutes.
  3. My thanksgiving revolves around both the stuffing, and the cherry pie. it's sooooo goooooood. I feel like a thanksgiving day pervert, I love it so much.

    I was going to throw something like this around myself here on TB.
    You see, my mom asked me to bring a green vegtable (not salad) and I have no clue...green bean cassarole might be good though.
    any other idears?

    I don't have a Thanksgiving dinner (wrong side of the pond!) but when it's Christmas I go nuts for stuffing and gravy, as well as mini-sausages wrapped in bacon. Mind you, the sausages have to be small sized Cumbrians, I won't eat any old rubbish!

    Dirty rice!

    It's a cajun recipe, and my family is cajun, so I love it!
  11. White rice and mashed potatoes with turkey gravy. For dessert, nothing on this planet beats fresh apple pie with the crumbly crust and some vanilla ice cream.

    I've never had it before, but given that I've been developing a strange penchant for green beans recently I might have to dig out a recipe for it!
  15. Mashed potatoes with sauted onions and mushrooms.
    Candied yams with melted marshmallows.
    Green beans with butter, pepper, lemon
    Cranberries -- the kind that comes in the shape of a can:hyper:

    naw.................amish corn pudding. It's like a corn casserole. Cream corn, an egg, a little flour, some sweet corn niblets, a little sugar, salt, pepper, and poured into a hot casserole dish to bake for about 35-40 minutes. Absolutely astounding!!!

    Woo hoo! Can I come to dinner at your house? Better yet, can I stay for a week or two and learn a few things?:) The thought of a Cajun Thanksgiving makes my stomach smile.

    Must have for me is cranbery relish.

    bag of cranberries
    1 granny smith apple
    1 orange
    1 cup of sugar

    Put it all in a food processor and blend.
