Top 10 Thanksgiving Recipes

Since it is only 2 weeks away *gulp*, here are, in my opinion, the Top 10 Thanksgiving Recipes from Allrecipes. I chose one from each of the categories outlined in my Thanksgiving planning post here, that could easily be served at your Thanksgiving table: turkey, potato, sweet potato, green vegetable (2), stuffing, condiments (2), desserts (2). And here they are, including personal comments from the peanut gallery me in parentheses. *drumroll please*

#1: Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way (I know there's a couple of you out there!)

#2: Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole (not your usual canned soup & fried onion variety)

Roasted Brussels Sprouts (never had 'em, but can 544 good reviews be wrong?!)

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing (hmmm, may have to reconsider my old standby.....)

Savory Turkey Gravy (I am anti-gravy, but to each his own.)

Cranberry Sauce (Now THIS condiment I can stand behind! Love turkey & cranberries!)

#9: Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake (double YUM!)

Carrot Cake III

And because we're all gonna have 'em, my top Turkey Leftover recipe:

Turkey Pot Pie

This creates a pretty straight-forward, old-fashioned style Thanksgiving meal. If you're adventurous/eclectic like me, stay tuned for the Top 10 Not-Your-Grandma's Thanksgiving Recipes!

Awesome! I'm planning to cook my first turkey this year. Thanks for the tips! Well my first big turkey. I cooked a 5 lb-der the other day.

Just saw you over at Simple mom. It is possible to make yogurt in the crockpot. Check out

@Andrea: I'm so excited for you!!! You'll have to let me know how everything turns out! I will be sure to post some more Thanksgiving tips as the big day approaches :>)

@mama: Yes, thank you! I did actually figure out the crockpot thing, although my method is different than the one you linked to. As long as it turns out like yogurt & is yummy, that's fine by me. Thanks for stopping by!
