Great Recipes for Thanksgiving Day

Whether you drive your Richmond Ford vehicle to a friend’s or relative’s house or your friends and relatives come to your house, you want Thanksgiving Dinner to be perfect. If you travel, you’ll probably bring something with you and if you entertain in your home, you’ll make most of the meal. Getting the perfect dish is part talent and part “good recipe.”

Kick up the Green Beans

Instead of making plain green beans, add some flavor by sautéing four slices of slab bacon in a sauté pan. When the bacon is translucent, add a half clove of finely diced garlic. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the green beans. Season lightly with pepper – you may not want salt as they should get plenty from the bacon. Cook until warmed through. The green beans should be crunchy if you are using fresh or frozen.

Turkey Rub

Make a turkey rub to add some kick to the turkey. After stuffing the turkey, sprinkle it liberally with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, poultry seasoning and Badia Redfish Seasoning. Bake the turkey as you normally would, but keep it covered until the last hour.

Perfect Cornbread

You’ll need two boxes of Jiffy cornbread mix, the ingredients listed on the box and ½ cup sugar. Grease a cast iron pan with bacon fat. Mix both boxes of cornbread mix, the ingredients on the box and the ½ cup sugar. Pour into the cast iron pan. Bake as directed.

Cheese Sauce for Veggies

You’ll need two tablespoons butter, about ¼ cup milk, two thick slices of jalapeno pepper cheese, cayenne pepper and 4 one-inch slices of Velveeta Sharp Cheddar.

Add the butter and milk to a saucepan. Cook on medium low until the butter melts. Add the cheese. Melt the cheese, stirring constantly. Add cayenne pepper to taste. Pour over hot vegetables – a mix of cauliflower, broccoli and carrots is great for this sauce.
