    Make Ahead Thanksgiving favorites

    Posted by  ·  November 4, 2011

    Happy Friday!  With just under three weeks until Thanksgiving, it’s time to start cooking!  We have rounded up links to some holiday favorites.  The Cranberry Sauce can be made a week ahead and refrigerated.  Make the other dishes now and freeze them until the day before Thanksgiving.  Enjoy a stress-free holiday with your family and friends!

    Wouldn’t these Twice Baked Potatoes be a beautiful surprise for your guests?

    Everyone loves Green Bean Casserole   here is a fresh take on a Thanksgiving must-have!

    This Cranberry Sauce will be on our table this Thanksgiving – the pears are perfect right now, so this should be easy and delicious!
    Wow!  This gluten free Stuffing eliminates the bread and uses rice!  Lots of yummy additions should make this a new family favorite!
    For a perfect ending, check out this Pecan Pie.  Make now, freeze, thaw on Thanksgiving morning = happy guests!
    Oh, my goodness I just had to share one more link. This cheesecake
    will disappear quickly!  What could be better than pumpkin + cheesecake?!?

      Since I do the stuffing outside my turkey I make it ahead and freeze it. I toast my bread cubes, throw all of the ingredients together , put into a sprayed baking dish, cover and freeze. I take it out the a.m. of and pop it in with the turkey, that I roasted two days before and carved up. The stress of doing a turkey dinner is off!

      I do accept as true with all the ideas you've presented to your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for newbies. May just you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

      What great ideas! I'm hosting Thanksgiving this year and I think the twice baked potatoes and pecan pie will be on the menu!
