Thanksgiving Favorites

It’s just us this year for Thanksgiving, so we are spending it with our best friends. The guys have tickets to the Aggie game on Thursday, so Jenn’s hosting a yummy brunch that morning before they head out. Then we’ll have our Thanksgiving meal on Friday evening. We’re making a few of our favorites along with a few non-thanksgiving-ish dishes. In my world, Thanksgiving meal really only needs three things: dressing {only my mother’s}, corn casserole, and rolls. All of the other stuff is great, but that is what I get seconds of every time!

I have been making my mother’s dressing on the years that we aren’t in San Angelo, and I have to say I think I’ve mastered her recipe! I am baking the cornbread today so it will be ready for Friday. I’d share her recipe but I’m thinking that dressing is one of those that you really like the recipe you {or your mom} has always used.

The corn casserole comes from Trey’s family, and it is just uh-maz-ing! It has most definitely become a staple at the Thanksgiving table at my parent’s house too. It is just too good not to share!

Trey’s Corn Casserole

  • 1 box Jiffy muffin mix
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 can cream of corn
  • 1 can kernel corn
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Mix all ingredients except cheese. Pour in buttered 7×12 dish {I prefer this over an 8×13} and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Sprinkle cheese on top, then bake for another 40 minutes. You know it’s done when it is fairly browned on the top!

And then you know how I feel about Sister Schubert’s Yeast Rolls… they are amazing and I don’t have to worry about rising the dough! I brush them with honey butter before baking. So good!

Oh I can’t wait until Friday!!
