What do your thanksgiving menus typically look like? I do a turkey and a ham, sweet potato casserole(think Ruths Chris) stuffing, corn maque choux and dirty rice. Sometimes Shrimp mirlton.
For dessert we do pecan pie and apple pie.

what about y’all? Pretty traditional or different?

Pumpkin Bread pudding recipe:

5-6 large croissants (stale or fresh) torn in 1 inch pieces
3 cups of pumpkin
teaspoon of vanilla extract
tablespoon of cinnamon
5 eggs whisked
1.5 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup of dark brown sugar
1/2 cup of Raisins and 1/2 cup of diced walnuts (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, gently mix everything, until uniform texture and color achieved. Pour into a large greased casserole dish. Garnish the top with butter (not margerine) and lightly sprinkle brown sugar on top as well. Cook at 350 for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Whiskey cream sauce (optional) - 1/2 cup good whiskey, 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1/2 cup brown sugar, cornstarch (to thicken).

The recipe is actually packed up in a box (we are starting to get ready to move - someday)....so this is from memory but I think it is pretty accurate....let me know if anyone makes it and how it was....Cheers

nice thanks. I assume the pumpkin is canned spiced pumpkin and not fresh baking pumpkin?

My mom makes the family recipe lasagna which acts as an appetizer....and it is a large piece.

I order a organic free range turkey, brine it for a couple days, and cook it in a smoker with pecan smoke

Store bought turkeys are filled with salt water and as such can't take on much of the brine. These turkey I order isn't filled like that so it really soaks up the flavor of the brine....makes for an amazingly flavorful and tender bird

I ordered one as well but I'm doing a dry brine. I'm hoping that it covers up any gamey flavors ftom being free range. Then I'm going to fry it.

From what I understand, the best thing to do is set up in the garage or carport....someplace covered in case it rains.

Bring the oil to 350 degrees and drop the turkey in from straight out the deep freeze
I hear dropping a frozen turkey in hot oil fryer is a good way to get yourself killed...or something. :hihi:
