Thanksgiving dinner tends to be basically the same year after year at our house. There are dishes that my family would just not let me not make. How's that for a double negative!

Here's the recipe for my incredibly easy and delicious cholesterol-laden "Corn Thing" as my family calls it. I only make it once a year, but I have to make a bunch of them, cause they keep coming back for thirds.

If I get ambitious I'll add the recipe for the Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake squares.

What really easy Thanksgiving recipes grace your table? Wouldn't it be fun if everyone added a recipe to this thread?

Alice's Corn Spoon Bread

1 Can whole kernel corn (11-15 oz)
1 Can Cream of Corn (same size)
1 stick melted butter
1 Cup sour cream
2 eggs, beaten to blend
1 8 ½ oz package corn muffin mix
¾ Cup grated cheese

Mix everything except cheese.

Bake at 375℉ for about an hour till center is set.

Sprinkle cheese over top and continue baking till melted, about 2 minutes more.

Yes Alice, it would be fun...and a darn good idea to share recipes...right up my alley! I found this pumpkin dessert recipe many years ago. It is super easy and simply delicious...not as an alternative to pumpkin pie (that just wouldn't be right) but as a dessert for a group, it is a nice addition.

(Prepared canned pumpkin is a great time saver)

4 eggs, slightly beaten
3 c. canned pumpkin
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. cloves
2 c. evaporated milk

1 box yellow cake mix
1 c. butter
1 c. chopped nuts

Mix above ingredients in order given except cake mix. Pour into ungreased 9x13 pan. Then sprinkle cake mix over pumpkin mixture. Drizzle 1 cup melted butter over cake mix and sprinkle with 1 cup chopped nuts. Bake at 350 degrees (325 degrees for glass pan) for 1 - 1 1/2 hours or until knife comes out clean.

It's a beautiful thing! Deedee

Merlot Cranberries

1 cup of Merlot wine
1 cup of sugar
1 bag of fresh cranberries
1 bag of frozen raspberries, thawed & drained.

Heat all ingredients in a pot on the stove stirring occasionally. Once cranberries have cooked thoroughly, start mashing them in the pan with a fork. Leave the skins in as you want the cranberry sauce to be chunky. After all the cranberries have been mashed, pour into your serving container and chill.

I promise you'll never buy another nasty can of cranberry loaf again.

If anyone wants my turducken recipe & instructions, let me know. I'll post.

Actually, here's the turducken recipe, in quiz form, but at least I don't have to retype.

I just finished mushing a bag of Amish Friendship Bread starter that my sister gave me that eventually yielded 2 loaves of bread (sweet cinnamon flavor). Good, but lots of work. The recipe says the starter is an "Amish secret" and if you accidentally throw the starter away, you'll have to look up an Amish person and ask for another starter.

Ironically, if you Google "Amish Friendship Bread Starter" you can find the "secret" ingredients online.

Of course my lips are sealed.

1 cup of chicken or turkey stock
1 tube of good pork sausage (sage, or hot dependiing on taste)
1 cup chopped celery with leaves
3 bunches of green onions chopped with greens
1/2 cup of butter
2 eggs beaten
optional 2 hard cooked eggs mixed in

salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Make your favorite cornbread according to directions. Let cool and crumble. Crumble and cook pork sausage just until done, in drippings add onion, and celery cook until translucent. Add to cornbread with beaten egg and spices, melt butter and add sorry 1/4 cup butter not 1/2 cup. Optional add hard cooked eggs (my mom put hard boiled eggs to hers) and the chicken or turkey stock. Cook stuffing at 375 for 1 hr. the last hour of cooking time for turkey. If desired add some drippings from turkey. You can also cook and add chopped giblets from turkey.

Jim makes a low carb pumpkin cheesecake using crushed walnuts with Splenda and butter instead of grahm crackers. It is fabulous and even with whipping cream (using Splenda again) it is only 4 carbs for a nice slice. Yum.

Also, I have a couple of favorite spagetti squash recipes I like. A beautiful color for the turkey-day table.

Perfect for Thanksgiving are
Get a bag of peeled carrots and boil them in Coke instead of water.
When the carrots are soft remove them and take some of the coke from the pot
(about a cup) add a little brown sugar and maple syrup and reduce it down to a nce syrup which you
pour over the carrots. Really easy and everyone loves em

Isn't spaghetti squash just the best Beth? I would absolutely love to have your recipes! Do you bake or microwave? It's an oddity in the food world for sure, but delicious whether or not one is trying to stay away from carbs!

If any interest out there, this is a super video with tons of info about the squash. I've not tried it microwaved, but this method would certainly reduce the risk, loss of fingers, while trying to cut through the darlin'! I cut the squash in half, scrape out seeds, rub a bit of EVVO over the inside of the on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for approximately 40 minutes. Hotter than Haiti to handle for about 5 minutes, but still use a hot amazing food!">Spaghetti
