We always go to my mother-in-law's beach house for Thanksgiving and Andy and I have slowly started to take over most of the meal prep. To save a little time this year we are going to pre-make a couple dishes and bring them with us Wednesday night. Here are some of my favorite dishes I'm planning to bring.
Pioneer Woman's Mashed Potatoes
Andy's favorite food is mashed potatoes, I like them but I'm not going to get too excited about it. Well, that was until I tried Ree's Mashed Potatoes. These are to die for! Picture me in the kitchen licking the spoon, the pot, and the potato masher itself. I think it's the season salt that set these apart, although the butter, cream cheese, and half and half don't hurt. ;)
Sweet Potato Souffle
Oh, you only serve one kind of potatoes at Thanksgiving, I'm sorry. These potatoes fall somewhere between a side dish and dessert and I just love them. I'm a fan of the pecan topping, but you could totally sub in marshmallows if that is your thing.
Pioneer Woman's Thanksgiving Stuffing
Again, Pioneer Woman knocks it out of the park. I just use cornbread, because it's my favorite. The thyme is what makes the recipe in my opinion. Every time I smell this spice I think of Thanksgiving now. This stuffing is my favorite part of the meal, hands down.
