Thanksgiving is just around the corner so I thought it would be fun for people to share their favorite recipes. I think this is the 3rd or 4th annual thread.
Take one and/or leave one. ;o)
I've posted this one before but it is good!
This pie is VERY rich!
Rich Chocolate Pecan Pie (From the Food Network)
1 1/2 cups pecans 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell (deep dish is best) 4 eggs, beaten 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup light brown sugar 1/2 cup corn syrup 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Pinch salt Caramel Sauce, for garnish, recipe follows Confectioners' sugar, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread the pecan pieces and the chocolate chips evenly on the bottom of the pie shell.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together. Pour the filling over the pecans. Bake until the filling sets, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes before slicing. Cut into individual servings and serve with a drizzle of Caramel Sauce and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
3/4 cup sugar 2 tablespoons water 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 1/2 cup heavy cream 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup whole milk
Combine the sugar, water, and lemon juice in a medium heavy saucepan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Let boil without stirring until the mixture becomes a deep amber color, 2 to 3 minutes, watching closely so it doesn't burn. Add the cream (be careful; it will bubble up), whisk to combine, and remove from the heat.
Add 2 tablespoons of the milk, then add up to 2 more tablespoons, until the desired consistency is reached. Let cool until just warm before serving. (The sauce will thicken as it cools.)
If that isn't sweet enough for you, throw some vanilla ice cream on top too.
Make dental appt.
I will ask Jim Robinson to ban anyone who posts a green bean casserole, aka cat vomit, recipe!
Chick’s Roasters. Right down the street.
The real question is ...
Home made baked turkey vs. store bought honey baked ham?
LOL! I almost posted one but it’s not the usual one. Good thing I decided to go with the pie!
Try spending the day with my liberal family members and you'll know what I mean. They're as loud as they are wrong.
Corn pudding made with Schope's dried sweet corn, and Sweet potato bisquits.
But this year we are going with french cut green beans lightly cooked served cold with a lemon/olive oil dressing.
May I assume you won’t have green bean casserole on your Thanksgiving table? LOL!!
Re: Sweet potato biscuits
I watched a documentary with a friend of mine the other day called The Rise of the Southern Biscuit and went online to see what else I could find out about it. If you love biscuits, you will love this website. Here is the page for their sweet potato biscuits. Remember, when you are cutting a biscuit using a biscuit cutter, dip the cutter in flour before cutting and NEVER twist the cutter on the dough.
The sweet potato dish is up to me this year, so I will watch this thread with bated breath to see if something pops up.
Thanks for posting this! I was just going to look for a choc pecan pie recipe! Woo Hoo!
I love to make turkeys but I brine them. They are awesome.
I have one with rum in it. ;o)
LOL! It is disgusting, yet tasty ;-)
Just because Texmex and Semtex rhymes doesn’t mean it’s a good idea!
1 bag frozen peas, defrosted
1 pound salt pork, trimmed and diced
2 medium onions, sliced into half-moon slices
salt and pepper to taste
1. Parboil the salt pork for 3 minutes in a bit of boiling water.
2. Remove salt pork from water, and brown in a large, deep saute pan.
3. In the rendered fat, add the onions and saute until slightly caremelized.
4. Add the defrosted peas and mix.
5. Simmer over medium heat until peas are hot, then salt and pepper to taste (taste first; that salt pork is salty).
Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!
We’ve brined ‘em before too, but we just got a Butterball for $.58/pound with a $50 purchase at Winco. Don’t know if if a Butterball needs to be brined. Could use some advie...
