By far, my favorite part of thanksgiving: all the starch. Especially stuffing.
I made my dad's classic stuffing, although maybe it's technically "dressing," since I cooked it outside the turkey. I started by slicing and lightly toasting bread: sourdough, pumpernickel, and a marble rye.
Then I sauteed some Italian sausage with "baby bella" mushrooms and chopped onions in some butter.
I tossed the bread with rosemary, oregano, salt and pepper, then added the sausage mix and finally a couple eggs to coat it. Once it was in the baking dish, I basted some turkey drippings on top to moisten it. Delish.
Twice-baked potatoes made by Sophie; also delicious.
Annnnd butternut squash/creamed spinach au gratin, baked and topped with parmesan. (Also Sophie's creation.)
I have plenty of leftover bread, so I may have to make more stuffing in the near future.
Anyone else have a favorite carb-y side dish to share?
