    Wanted: suggestions for dh who is toothless this Thanksgiving...soft foods

    that will make his Thanksgiving special. Started with Sweet potato biscuits recipe...looking at a dressing cupcake with gravy-turkey bits topped with soft-cooked cranberries, but he may not be able to handle that. Meal will end with Grandma's pumpkin pie and dream whip. Any suggestion is welcome. Thank you in advance.

    Broccoli florets w/cheese (the florets will cook up very soft but avoid stems)

    Mashed potatoes w/cheese - throw in a dollop of sour cream, to make it extra yummy

    (can you tell I love cheese? LOL)

    Throw some turkey into a blender and then mix with gravy. Serve over a homemade buttermilk biscuit, seasoned with oregano, marjoram, basil, and whatever else you like. The biscuit ends up tasting much like stuffing. The gravy will make it very soft.

    Baked (peeled) apples slices w/cinnamon, brown sugar, splash of lemon juice . . . .

    Potato salad can also be made, without 'chunky' stuff. Think mashed potatoes, chopped egg, juice from pickle relish, onion juice instead of onion, etc.

    He is also diabetic, so not too many sweets, please. He does have a Ninja blender to blend up his drinks, milkshakes, and proteins.

    Stove top stuffing with turkey and gravy over top it/mashed potatoes with gravy along side. You have the pumpkin pie for dessert so that would make a nice meal for me.

    We grow a garden and can the produce. Lots of sweet potatoes, apples from the orchard. Yes, he loves cheese and sour cream in his potatoes. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Ugh that is no fun! Maybe lots of pies.

    Oh after I posted I noticed the diabetic note. All those carbs and sugars would not be good. I like her idea of blenderizing the turkey into the gravy. I always find turkey stringy and dry but gravy would remedy that.

    My brother has the same problem. He cannot have dental work done because he has very weak bones in his jaw...so he has lost a lot of his teeth....I take whatever we are having for dinner and put it in a food processor and chop to a fine texture.....it has all the flavor...just already in tiny pieces. When I fix a roast, I put the meat in, chop, add gravy on his plate with mash potatoes and I also chop the carrots in the food processor. Be sure to add butter and seasoning to the dishes. Deserts are pudding with vanilla wavers in the pudding so they are soft. My bother, too is a diabetic, so I fix a lot of suger free jello with whipping cream poured over it with no sugar in the cream...he loves the taste anyway. I also use whipping cream and crumbled chocolate cake mixed together. After all, it is about taste even if it doesn't look great. So cooked turkey, ground up put on top of cornbread dressing (with lots of chicken broth to make mush) and gravy on top.
    Cranberry sauce....you can make this sugar free...with sweetner after you cook the cranberries and run through the processor. Best wishes to your family.

    Poor hubby!
    Quiche is always good and you can add in whatever you like. Good for diabetics, I'd think.
    Bread pudding - you can make a savory version if you want to avoid sugar.

    Feel the fear and do it anyway!

    For the taste of turkey, Turkey croquettes are loved by my family. Also a great way to stretch leftover meats and poultry of any kind.
