~ Thanksgiving Menu: Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes & Harvest Stuffing ~

~ Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes ~

This Recipe *whipped* up so easily...Butterfly gets all the credit for putting this delicious dish together.

Ingredients:  New Red Potatoes, Skins On!, cut in half (yes, that easy!!) ~ 3lbs.,
Sour Cream (1/2 - 3/4 cup), Blue Cheese (6 ounces), Butter (3 Tbs.)

Drain, then mash those potatoes (50 calories burned)  :o)

Adding the blue cheese, sour cream and butter.  Salt and pepper to taste.


~ Harvest Stuffing ~

Besides the incredibly flavorful and succulent turkey, this was another top favorite.

Ingredients:  Shredded Carrots (1 cup), Chopped Celery (1 cup), Chopped Onion (1/2 cup), Butter (1/2 cup), Salt (1/4 tsp.), Nutmeg (1/4 tsp.), Pepper (1/4 tsp.), Bread Cubes, dry (8 cups), Apples, Chopped & Peeled (2 cups), Chopped Walnuts (1/2 cup), Toasted Wheat Germ (1/4 cup), Chicken Broth (1/2 - 1 cup).

Be prepared for delicious smells to take over your kitchen.

Butter.  We love butter...but don't use it all that often. 

Let the aromas begin...

Cooking the carrots, celery, and onion just until tender.  Then, stir in salt, nutmeg, and pepper.

Adding the Apples...

Adding the carrot mixture...

Drizzle with the broth...I used the full cup.

Ready for the oven...Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes at 325. 

I have enjoyed so many different types of stuffings:
With sausage, or black olives, with....the list goes on and on.  But this recipe really complimented the turkey...no distractions.  It was very enjoyable on it's own, but lends a freshness and was not too overbearing in substance and flavor.

Another incredible addition to the Thanksgiving Table...
