Thanksgiving Food

Turkey Day is almost here! While you are thinking about all the things to be thankful for, we wanted to add a few to your list. We know you have a lot to plan for and things to do to entertain your guests. Here are the easiest Thanksgiving recipes to make the holiday less stressful and give more thanks for!

The appetizer: Spicy Sausage Balls

We suggest making two batches to start…they won’t stick around long!

What you need:

  • 2 cups Bisquick baking mix
  • 1 pound spicy ground sausage
  • 1 pound shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 325. Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl. Grease baking sheet. Roll mixture into small balls and spread 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes until browned.


The dessert: No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

No need to turn on the oven!

What you need:

  • 10 oz can 100% pure pumpkin filling
  • 1 pkg cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 2 cups Cool Whip (thawed)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 pie crust (9 inch)

Combine pumpkin, cream cheese, 1 cup of Cool Whip and powdered sugar in a bowl. Pour into pie crust. Top with remaining Cool Whip. Put in refrigerator to set for 4-6 hours. Done!


Traditional side item: Make-Your-Own Cranberry Sauce

It’s easy and tastes better to make it at home than buy the canned sauce!

What you need:

  • 1 bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 orange (for zest)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Take a saucepan over medium heat and combine orange juice, orange zest, sugar and 3/4 cup water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add cranberries and bring to boil. Reduce heat, let simmer until thick. Let cool before serving. Voila!


Comfort Food: Fool-Proof Creamed Corn

We’re not kidding! There’s no way to mess up this classic comfort food…

What you need:

  • 1 pkg cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 cups corn
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp parsley

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease at 9-inch baking dish. Combine cream cheese and butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add milk, corn, thyme and salt and pepper. Heat and stir well. Pour into baking dish, sprinkle cheese on top. Bake 15 minutes. Garnish with parsley flakes. Enjoy!

We wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends!
