What do your families make for Thanksgiving, beside turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing?

We do creamed corn, the obligatory Frenches green bean casserole, and this thing called oyster salad, which is like a 100 year old family recipe passed down through our family. It's basically cabbage, diced oysters, diced sour pickles, crumbled crackers (acts like croutons), and a vinegar based dressing. It sounds terrible, but it's one of the best tasting dishes ever and I'll post the recipe if anyone's interested.

usually do Williamsburg sweet potatoes. Not all the marshmallows and sweetness of a typical sweep potato casserole, more heavy on the nutmeg and cinnamon... Delicious.

We have LOTS of cranberry production around here, so we usually make a real, fresh cranberry salad.

Cope's creamed corn is also one of my favorites.

Our sides are the standards. My wife likes to bake a ham and I like to find unique ways to cook the turkey. This year I am smoking a large turkey breast stuffed with boudin and wrapped in a bacon weave.

A friend of mine did the turkey breast in bacon weave to try a few days ago, no boudin though. Excellant stuff.

It's from my great grandmother.

Salad:

1 can of oysters
sour pickles diced (you can't use any other kind of pickle)
saltine crackers crumbled
finely shredded cabbage

Add the crackers at the end after the dressing has been added.

The dressing (it's basically homemade sour mayonnaise):

1 egg
2 Tablespoons of vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar

Wisk over slow heat until it turns creamy, and immediately cool. Pour over salad.

Sounds hideous, but it's excellent. We have to triple the recipe because everyone fights over it.

It's more like 1 diced pickle, a bowl full of cabbage, and maybe 5 crackers crumbled.

Obviously Ham. I like to rub my Turkey with Bacon fat before roasting breast side.down for the first half...breast side up the second half. Injected with garlic butter.

Candied sweet potatoes...think creme brulee almost.

Dirty rice.

Crawfish etoufee cornbread stuffing.

Green bean casserole, but with homemade soup and Bacon.

Baked Mac and cheese.

Smothered corn and spicy sausage.

Bacon brownies

Buttercake

Maybe a small gumbo or bisque if its cold.

Terrible cranberry sauce.

French bread.

And maybe deep fried BBQ pork ribs if I have time.




I wish I had some wood ducks....
