Victoria and I the other night were talking about making a Thanksgiving muffins out of the traditional ingredients. The outside would be stuffing, the center of the muffin would be turkey, corn, and a hint of cranberry. And masked potatoes would be the topping or icing. I guess this idea sounds more like a non-sweet cupcake. I don't know if we will do this, but they sound good!

Hmm, I'm honestly not sure what we're having. I know my family will probably have turkey, and a few other sides, but I'm visiting my sister at school who is really excited to try out new recipes, so I'll have to report back once she surprises me, lol

That sounds really good! I've seen people bake stuffing in muffin tins to make individual portions, but your version sounds better. How about adding a little gravy filling so when you crack it open it oozes gravy? Damn, I'm hungry now too...

OMG That sounds SO freaking yummy.

Our Thanksgiving has already passed and I made my first turkey, EVER. I drapped bacon over that bad boy and it was AWESOME.

we had it with smashed potatoes, corn, carrots, stuffing, fresh buns and cherry pie for desert

That sounds GLORIOUS.

We're going with-

Beer and Bacon Roasted Turkey
Chestnut Stuffing
Cranberry Sauce
Homemade gravy
Smashed Potatoes
Rolls
Candied Yams
Veggie Mix
Pumpkin Pie
Blue Cheese Tart

And my Thanksgiving homebrew (A spiced pumpkin lager)should be ready by then!

Rather traditional for the mid-west (where we came from) - roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, peas and mushrooms, crescent rolls, cranberry sauce, salad, and Dutch apple pie. I usually end up making deviled eggs, cream cheese crab dip for crackers, and pumpkin bread. I try to inflict a new recipe on my family every year, and they've threatened violence if I try again (traditionalists, my family).

Stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed sweet potatoes, and pecan pie were my ex-husband's traditions that I had to learn. Very southern guy, him.

My 'leftovers' recipe is something I picked up in a New England deli - crescent roll sandwich with (layered in order) mashers, gravy, turkey, and cranberry sauce.

I actually don't know what I'm doing for family Thanksgiving on the thursday, but I have another thanksgiving on Black Friday (day after). I don't know what i'm grabbing for that yet, but it's up north from me.

We're pretty traditional: turkey, stuffing, yams, pineapple cream cheese jello salad, rolls, and a good dry white wine.

Agreed about the marshmallows - I think it's a southern thing that started it: "It's not sweet enough! More sugar! Caramelized brown sugar and pecans! Oh, and throw that bag of mini-marshmallows on, too! More sugar!" The obsession of the South to put sugar in EVERYTHING ...

I preferred to mash them with butter, milk, a bit of cinnamon, and serve it with the turkey gravy (the flavors work together, trust me).

I'm Canadian so I celebrated Thanksgiving a few weeks ago. We had turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, squash and peas with cranberry sauce and gravy. Pumpkin and apple pie for dessert.

I agree that the marshmallow on sweet potatoes thing is strange. I've never actually seen someone serve it, but I always see it in American magazines, along with that green bean casserole with the creamy sauce and fried onions on top. I'd much rather just eat plain vegetables, or put a little butter and pepper on them.

We haven't planned a menu yet, but we usually do Thanksgiving at my MIL's and then this year we're going out to dinner afterwards with my parents.

We are breaking from the normal turkey, but everything else will still be there. We are trying to live off our land as much as we can, I mean why not? So we will have venison tenderloin's instead of turkey, the potatoes and corn are from the garden. Of course the applesauce is from the front yard apple tree. The kids want homemade ice cream so we will do that as well.

I'm not one for holidays, but we might have a traditional dinner this year. We've already got some pies and cranberry sauce. Probably have turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, rolls, stuffing, etc.

One time we had Popeye's chicken and sides for TG and I think another time we had Chinese food. I love breaking with stuffy traditions.

I'm one for that as well. Seeing as I may well be dining alone this year (which I'm ok with) and I don't care much for turkey, I'm thinking pizza...

My mom moved to FL for a few years and her and her bf didn't have any family or anything local so they used to make turkey sandwiches and eat them on the beach at Siesta Key on Thanksgiving

I am not crazy about holidays either, but I could eat turkey dinner everyday!

Anyone ever had deep fried turkey? That is amazing! It tastes about the same as a left-over, but when it is fresh it is soooo good!

I haven't but I've heard it's delicious. May have to try it some day. What about Turducken? Ever had that?

Probably whatever my mom dishes up I prefer ham over turkey though...easier to take care of leftovers!

Hubby prepared ours a few times this way - it is good but I have oven duty this year so no deep frying lol

We'll have our usual meal - oven roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, stuffing, broccoli, cauliflower, dinner rolls and the most important part of the meal as hubby seems to think...Stuffed ham.

Most people never heard of it but stuffed ham is a local dish dating back to slavery. My brother actually sold the receipe to Betty Crocker years ago - not sure if they still have it in their cook book or not lol

A Stuffed Ham takes many hours to make correctly. Basically I buy a whole corned ham. Prepare it stuffed with onions, cabbage, kale, mustard seed, several types of pepper and salt. Then wrap it in cheese cloth and cook it for about 5 hours. Looks a lot like something out of Green eggs and Ham when done and it really hot spicy. I won't touch it with a ten foot pole but everyone else in my family loves it.

Dessert is the best part of the meal I think pumpkin pie and cheese cake
