It’s Thanksgiving week here in the U.S. If you’re still deciding on a menu for the big day, I have a couple to share with you that you will love!
Sweet Potato Casserole
3 cups mashed sweet potato
½ cup milk
1/3 cut butter softened
1 tsp. vanilla
Blend everything together until it is smooth and creamy. Pour into a oven safe baking dish.
1 cup chopped nuts (Use pecans or almonds. I prefer pecans.)
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup melted butter
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the melted butter and stir until it is moist. If it’s too runny or goopy add a little flour to thicken. Crumble the mixture in chunks on top so it covers the entire surface.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes
What is Thanksgiving without mashed potatoes? We make these in my house every year, and they are delicious.
1 -1½ lbs. of Yukon Gold potatoes (unpeeled)
½ tsp. of salt
4 Tbsp. heavy cream
2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. milk
Salt & Pepper
Boil potatoes in a large pot, with a little bit of salt. Cook for about 15-20 minutes until you can poke them easily with a fork.
Drain water and let the potatoes sit for a few minutes. Peel the potatoes, leaving some of the skin on as you go. Cut up potatoes and put them in a large bowl. Add the butter, milk and cream and beat until everything is smooth. Use salt and pepper to taste.
What's Thanksgiving without pie? The last dish is for Kentucky Derby Pie. If you like chocolate you will love this.
½ cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
½ cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
¾ cup chocolate chips
¾ cup nuts (walnuts or pecans)
9 inch unbaked pie crust or shell
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into the pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until the top is browned. DEVOUR!
Hope your holiday is DELICIOUS!
