    Must Have Side Dish For Thanksgiving

    What is the one side dish that you cannot do without on Thanksgiving. Besides Turkey, stuffing, ham, potatoes and that green bean casserole!!! I'm cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in years!!!

    I saw a recipe on allrecipes.com called almond cranberry squash bake. I will be making this. Sounds scrumptious. I always make creamed onions.

    Hash Brown Casserole...my wife makes the BEST
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I have a wonderful recipe for a vegetable casserole with a Ritz Cracker topping that has become a favorite with my family. It is easy, nutritious and very good!

    http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/e...ipe/index.html is excellent and has been used by us now for several years.

    A fancy thing we do is wrap 2 fresh asparagus spears in a piece of bacon and cook in a skillet on med/low or grill on a low heat until bacon is crisp and asparagus is cooked tender, they are so yummy!

    Try this home made creamed corn recipe, I have also done it without the parmesan cheese. Once it is made you can put it in a slow cooker to keep warm.

    Creamed Corn

    1/3 cup butter
    1/3 cup flour
    1 cup whipping cream
    1 cup milk
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 t salt
    dash of white pepper
    5 cups frozen corn - thawed
    1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

    Melt butter -stir in flour til smooth. Gradually add cream, milk, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Boil and stir for 2 minutes. Add corn, heat through. Transfer to ungreased 1 1/2 quart broiler proof dish. Sprinkle with cheese - broil 5 inches from heat 3-5 minutes

    Must have Aunt Lee's Baked Corn, sweet potatoes covered in butter, brown sugar, and a little splash of Kahlua, everyone’s favorite the green bean casserole with lots of fried onions, and of course carrots and parsnips covered in butter (my father and grandfather's favorite--we always have them for Thanksgiving in memory of them)...and my all time favorite creamed baby onions.

    Rather than that "green bean" casserole, I make Grean Bean vingerette. Olives are a must!!!

    Sweet potatoes with walnut crunch topping, scalloped oysters (my husband's family tradition) & the latest that everyone loves is cornbread sausage stuffing done in the crockpot.

    And this is my 1000th post!! Yippee!

    Must have is a corn casserole, mixture of creamed and niblet corn with some swiss cheese and cream cheese. Got the recipe from a now Ex-SIL and I have to say this recipe is the nicest thing she ever did for our family. Regular sides are mashed potatoes, lightly candied yams, cranberry sauce (jelly and whole) and stuffing.

    I'm cooking this year, DIL and DGD are bringing most of the sides and I'm making the turkey, apple pies and butternut squash soup. I'd like to add a new green veggie dish. We're tired of the that green bean one with mushroom soup and the broccoli and rice one. Does anyone have a good green veggie dish that isn't too rich?

    For me it's the oyster dressing. Yum.


    Oyster Dressing

    Ingredients
    6 tbs oil
    1 cups finely chopped yellow onions
    cup finely chopped green bell pepper
    cup finely chopped celery
    teaspoon salt
    cayenne pepper or Tony’s Chachere’s creole seasoning to taste
    2 bay leaves
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    cup finely chopped green onions, green tops and whites
    cup finely chopped parsley
    cup chicken stock
    bag Pepperidge Farm Seasoned Bread Cube (blue pk)
    1 large egg
    1 qt fresh oysters, drained and chopped, and their strained liquor

    Directions
    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heavily butter a 2-quart baking dish with 1 tablespoon of butter and set aside.

    2. Heat the oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions, bell pepper, celery, salt, cayenne, and bay leaves to the pan and
    cook, stirring, until the vegetables are soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, green onions, and parsley, and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir the chicken stock into the vegetables and remove from the heat.

    3. Add the bread cubes and stir well to incorporate. Break the egg into the mixture and stir well, then add the oysters and their liquor. Pour the oyster dressing into the prepared pan, sprinkle with Italian Bread Crumbs and bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and bubbling on top, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. (If the dressing is too juicy, add some Italian Bread Crumbs).

    4. Remove the pan from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Yield: Makes 6 to 8 servings.

    Brussel sprouts. My former MIL used to make these with bacon a little sugar, salt and vinegar and I would eat most of them. They are delish. Gotta have buttermilk pie for dessert too, oh, and a home made pound cake (Joy of
    Cooking recipe). Yum, to die for!
