All the usual suspects, plus roasted brussels sprouts with bacon and apple.

Wife and family are too far away for me to travel for Thanksgiving; I will be alone a couple of states away.

I think I might make myself a gigantic, biatchin pizza.

eaglepuss: There are just 2 of us so the challenge is to find a turkey breast under 6 lbs and isn't enhanced (low sodium diet). We do roasted turkey breast, cornbread stuffing, candied sweet potatoes, homemade dinner rolls (Mom's recipe), green beans, can 'o cranberry sauce, pecan pie for me and peach pie for the boyfriend (sometimes a peach cobbler for both of us). This candied sweet potato recipe is super easy and surprisingly tasty. Guess I shouldnt be surprised since it has bourbon in it....

Senator Russell Sweet Potatoes:

content0.tastebook.com

3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla

Mix and place in buttered dish. Bake 15 minutes at 350.

Heat:
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
1 cup chopped pecans

Spread over sweet potato mixture. bake at 350 for 30 minutes or longer. Serves 6 light eaters. I'd double it.

You can thank me later.

soosh: last year I did Alton Brown's brined turkey and it was definitely the best turkey I've ever made in 25 years of making them.


You can't beat AB for roasting turkey. This spring, however, I smoked one over apple wood after injecting it with a cajun rub, melted butter mixture. Absolutely the best. This year I'm travelling so I won't be doing the bird. Will probably bring a Good Eats pumpkin pie though.

It's gonna be turkey with blood sauce to join all the rest of the unfailingly tasty trimmings if that teabagger cousin of mine starts up his low-information blathering.

It's actually interesting if you prepate it exactly correctly.

My in-laws do turkey (fried the past couple years) and lasagna for Thanksgiving. My husband more or less claims the lasagna for himself.

A few years ago I made Paula Deen's corn casserole. I felt so dirty making it, but it went over pretty well with the in-laws.

I smoked a 14 pounder in about 2 1/2 hours. Roasting time, 30 minutes at 500, then another 1 1/2 to 2 hours at 350. Internal temp should be 165.

At 325 degrees, about 3 h 45m per bird. If you have a friend who owns a pizzeria with stone ovens and they will let you use their kitchen on T-day (I've done this), you can cook your entire thanksgiving dinner at once. It's freaking amazing!

The recipe for Pecan Pie on the back of the Karo Dark Corn Syrup bottle is damn near fool proof. The only time I farked it up my oven temperature was inaccurate.

as far back as10 years ago, my Pop would cook Paella(still the best dish I've ever tasted)
Momma would make a homemade pizza..We would have every cold cut imaginable sent
to us from back east,peperoni ,salami,cheeses.homemade bread,deviled eggs,and finally
the turkey.Pop makes the best stuffing,and all the fixins.We sound fat..we're not.Its a Sicilian
thing.By the time we got to the turkey....It was like eating a baloney sandwich that you didnt
wanna eat..Plenty of leftovers..We just do turkey and fixins,with plenty of salami,cheese for
the games.

Melt your butter on a stove pan or in the microwave, whisk in cream. Pour cream mixture over drained potatoes, mash. Add your minced garlic, add pepper or more salt if desired.


Not a bad recipe...but, you need a LOT MORE GARLIC!!!1!:
¼ cup roasted garlic cloves
½ cup milk {reduced fat is fine, but not skim}
½ cup heavy cream or crème fraîche
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
Kosher salt
2 pounds potatoes, preferably Idaho or Yukon Gold, peeled and quartered

Purée the garlic, milk and cream in a blender or food processor until smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in butter; cover and keep warm.

Meanwhile, bring a large a 3-quart or larger pan of water to a boil. Add 2 teaspoons salt and the potatoes. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes; drain.

Arrange a potato ricer over a large heat-proof bowl and press the potatoes through it. If you don't have a potato ricer {go out and get one - it makes super-smooth mashed potatoes!} just mash the potatoes in the bowl using a potato masher or wooden spoon.

Dribble in the hot milk mixture beat until the potatoes are creamy. Taste and add more salt if you think they need it. I find that they almost always need some - start with ½ teaspoon kosher salt or ¼ teaspoon table salt and go from there.

Serve warm, sprinkled with some freshly chopped parsley or chives.

Spread over sweet potato mixture. bake at 350 for 30 minutes or longer. Serves 6 light eaters. I'd double it.

My family does a variation on that: instead of vanilla, we use cinnamon and nutmeg. It's pretty good stuff.

Going to the in-laws. Planning to show up just in time for dinner. Otherwise I get to be a witness to all the snide comments that the sisters make to each other, the general pissiness of the brother-in-law, the whining and screaming and yelling and screaming and crying and screaming of the sister-in-law's utterly ungovernable children (who behave fine when Mrs. Love Zombie and I are watching them because they Know What's Good For Them), then finally getting to eat while listening to whatever the toddler wants to have on, or else he'll have a hissy fit.

Then pie and a leisurely two-hour drive back home with the dogs.

Oddly, it's more relaxing when I cook everything and THAT gang shows up at my house, though the last time the toddler was here he smashed an 1800 year old oil lamp. Not "oops, I was holding it and it dropped", but "Oh, someone told me to put it back -- I will toss it to the ground instead!".

Family. Yeah, don't get me started.

I've been doing AB's brined turkey for a few years now, but I'm thinking of doing a smoked turkey this year. The gravy will be a bit of a challenge, but I think a few extra parts should be good for a stock.

I boil my garlic cloves whole with the potatos for garlic mash, then mash them with the spuds. Takes the edge off, makes the garlic creamy, and no garlic breathe.

I brined my first one last year also. Then I smoked it, and it was magnificent! The drippings from a smoked turkey certainly make for an interesting gravy.

8oz cream cheese
2 cups confectioners sugar
24oz cool whip (can use chocolate cool whip)

cream all the ingredients and then blend in the cool whip
freeze in store bought graham cracker crust or oreo crust.

Makes three pies.

You can use chocolate sauce or raspberry or strawberry topping if you want.

Just remember atheist liberal scum, Thanksgiving is fundamentally a religious holiday. You are giving thanks to God - that's the point. Best for you pre-adults going through your atheist liberal stage to avoid it altogether.

This, too, but a goose is too big for one, so have to find other things to do with leftovers: Goose hash, stew, chili etc. Grind up the small pieces, make pate or mix with sour cream for luscious dip, or just eat it cold from the fridge.

If you can find them,real Yukon Gold potatos (not the "Golden" ones some places sell) make absolutely the best damned mashed taters.I use just a little butter & milk & put in some roasted garlic (run through the press) & salt of course,everybody loves 'em.
