I always like to try new recipes during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. I watched a couple of holiday programs on the Food Network to get some ideas. Even though Rachael Ray is NOT my favorite FN chef, several of the recipes she demonstrated sounded really good!
Here is our Thanksgiving menu:
Caesar Salad (Bill's creation)
Pumpkin Pie Cake (an old recipe from my Mom) Recipe shown at the end of this post.
Continue reading - photos of the different dishes are shown.
Pressed Herbs and Spices Turkey Breast - The skin on the turkey breast was in pieces, so I was not able to stuff the pistachio herb paste under the skin. Instead, I spread it on top of the breast to impart the flavor. It worked!
Pumpkin-Zucchini Muffin Stuffin' - I added some chopped mushrooms to the other veggies. I liked the dressing a lot!
Photo not too good - much better than it looked.
Apple & Onions Stuffin' Muffins
Autumn Potato Gratin
Cranberry-Pear Relish - So easy! Didn't even have to cook the cranberries.
Pumpkin Pie Cake - See recipe below - it is so easy and SO good!
But, don't let me forget the wine! Here they are:
Pumpkin Pie Cake
1 - 29 oz can Pumpkin
1 - 13 oz can Evaporated Milk
3 Eggs, beaten
1 t Nutmeg
1/2 t Ginger
2 T Cinnamon
1/2 t Cloves
1/2 T Salt
1 1/2 C sugar
Mix above ingredients and pour into 13 x 9 cake pan.
Sprinkle a box of Yellow Cake Mix over mixture.
Than sprinkle 1 1/2 C Chopped Nuts.
Melt 1 1/2 sticks butter and pour over top. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
Serve upside down with whipped cream. (I usually serve it just the way it comes out of the pan, but I guess the idea is to have the pumpkin on the top rather than on the bottom.)
