During Thanksgiving, I've always been a fan of stuffing a bunch turkey & side dishes into a roll. After about 7 of those I'll pass out for a while, whenever I wake the next round begins & it starts all over again.

Corn bread Stuffing
Baked Yams (or as people incorrectly call them "sweet potatoes", which is something different) with a little brown sugar.

That's pretty much all that's needed....

Turkey
Stuffing (just normal stuffing none of this apple or cranberry **** or whatever)
Creamed corn/corn casserole
Cranberry sauce
Yams w/Marshmellows
Coleslaw
Mashed Potatoes
Corn Bread

It normally tastes better after my Lions win. Which doesn't happen. Too bad the NFL always schedules them against the best team in football. So it tastes pretty good, not great.

I'm a huge turkey fan, but usually only eat a bit, but then the next day I love fresh cold turkey sandwiches.
I make a cajun smoked turkey it's awesome but spicy.
My brother makes a deep fried turkey so moist

My mom makes a turkey in the bag, that thing sucks. But whatever my brother and I rescue my mom from her horrible horrible turkey that she thinks everyone loves.

You are actually incorrect. The sweet orange potatoes we commonly have with Thanksgiving dinner are sweet potatoes. They are called Yams apparently because when slaves in the south were given sweet potatoes they called them Yams becuase they were kinda close to a tuber in Africa.

Yams on the other hand are grown in Africa and Asia. They are usually brownish and are rough and scaly. They are a little bit sweet but no where near as sweet as sweet potato. They tend to be much longer and cylindrical then the stubby shorter sweet potato.

Sweet potatoes being lighter in color on the inside. I had a chef confirm it too, so now I'm really confused.

3 Turkeys prepared?

If yes, that's a good dinner even w/ the turkey in a bag (wtf is that?)

Yes but we have like 30 people at my parents for thanksgiving plus we need lots of leftovers for everyone, my family always over cooks

Turkey in a bag is basically a reynolds turkey bag that's supposed to keep it moist and doesn't work but my mom think it's great.

we do thanksgiving at my best friend's family's house (his whole family is basically my 2nd family, and my parents are vegan, so we just do a thanksgiving lunch with them)... and they do NOT **** around when it comes to this glorious day. (note to all foodies: keep foodie friends!)

brined and roasted turkey
deep fried turkey
honey baked ham
mashed potatoes (one w/ and one w/o onions)
gravy
craburrrrrrry sauce (sometimes substituted with chutney)
chicken sausage stuffing
cornbread stuffing
jalapeno stuffing
sweet potato pie
green bean casserole
cream of turkey soup
turkey meatballs with cranberries and this amazing OJ "sauce"
tons of apps (cheese, cured meats, chips n' dip, etc.)
tons of pies (pecan, pumpkin, sweet potato, blackburrrrrry)
and an endless supply of great beer and wine (my best friend's cousin, who's basically a cousin to me too, is a regional beer and wine buyer for whole foods in south flurrrrrrida... needless to say, she has impeccable taste in libations).

black friday lunch is always: leftover turkey (i prefer the fried), leftover ham, a spread of mashed potatoes n' gravy, some cranburrrry sauce and maybe some lettuce (for some ruffage) on fresh-baked country wheat or 7-grain bread from this awesome bakery around the corner from us (that's open on black friday!).

Of course Joe eats turkey meatballs in an OJ sauce....
Weird cause I can't imagine a meatballs with the texture of a turkey. Kind of like a turkey ftitter, but I'd definitely eat it.

Moms are always right....

I can only imagine the turkey in a bag family jokes in the kitchen.

dude, it's so ****ing good! it's got a nice spicy kick to it, but the sweetness of the cranberries and sauce/juice mellows it out enough to really even out the flavor profiles. they make the best (and most quickly eaten) apps for thanksgiving or, really, any occasion. i fux wif these meatballs!

CityofTreez
10-26-2012, 02:17 PM
Yeah....didn't even think of that.
The juice & cranberries keep the meatballs tender, cause turkey can get very dry.

I hate mayo so no ordinary turkey sandwiches for me... My day consists of

Turkey
Creamed corn
Mashed potatoes
Home Made Gravy
Cranberry sauce
Biscuits
Italian Hot sausage cornbread stuffing.
Carrots cooked along side the turkey in the juices
Salad
Deviled eggs

I do not eat the day before because it makes everything that much better...Throughout the day before and the next day I have Egg Nog.

Pies

Pumpkin
Coconut
Lemon meringue{this is my favorite}


Has anyone had Turduckin? I would love to try this

i have a general principal of not eating white, semen-looking sauces/condiments

however, this theory was strongly tested a little while ago while out to lunch with a friend from work... it's this asian-fusion place that has really awesome food. i usually get a grilled chicken pesto baguette with fresh moozarell, lettuce and tomatoes, and a side of either edemame, wakame salad or turkey chili. this one time, i decided to branch out and get the sweet potato fries as a side.

so, the dish is ready and i sit down to eat it, when i notice this thick, white, goopy sauce accompanying the fries. i tell my friend he can take it for his order of sweet potato fries if he wants extra dipping sauce. he sticks a fry in the sauce, eats it, then says, "you seriously need to reconsider your 'white sauce' rule."

turns out, the thick, white, goopy sauce for the fries was actually melted marshmallow. it was glorious.

but, still, **** mayo...

Day after is always turkey pot pie. Just need to make the crust and in goes all your leftovers. I like topping it with a layer of the remaining mashed potatoes instead of more crust.

I hear this year the fad is a Cheddostricowigturduckinardiojection. It's a chicken in a duck in a turkey in a pig in a cow in an ostrich, deep fried in cheddar cheese and ground up into a syringe which injects directly into your heart. Supposed to be amazing.

Deep fried turkeys are amazing.

I love duck, and in the Turduckin, it was the best meat once fully cooked.

Nope. Those are both sweet potatoes. Different varieties but still sweet potatoes. It's like a regular peaches and white peaches. One has white flesh and the other has yellow flesh.

Look at the URL for your Yam picture. sweet_potato.gif :)

Lots of people in the US use both words meaning Sweet Potato. It's a major misconception that we have here. If you buy a "yam" here in the US, 99% of the time it is the interchangeable name for sweet potato unless you are in a specialty section/store.

I'm sure your chef friend knows a ton more about cooking then I do but in this case of the true definition of a Yam, he is wrong.

Vegenaise (http://www.followyourheart.com/products/category/vegenaise/) is the way to go. Non of the fat and cholesterol of regular mayo and the flavor is spot on to mayo. They have another one that even matches miracle whip if you happen to like that crap.
