We make a similar one with Swiss cheese and no cream cheese that is called Kansas corn bake. I don't know why. Everyone loves it.

Speaking of cream cheese, this pumpkin trifle looks quick and easy and a little lighter than the usually pie dessert:

What do you normally make?

I make a cheesecake using angel fingers instead of graham crust. It's more work to cut up the lady fingers but so worth it.

I also make special stuffing that I love having Hungarian yellow peppers for but will substitute red, yellow and orange small sweet peppers; mushrooms, celery, carrot, onions and sausage. I use the turkey juices to baste the stuffing. Everyone loves my stuffing. Problem is I don't have a recipe; I just eye ball everything using my small "soup" bowls. I always use 2 bags of Pepperidge Farm country stuffing mix when I can find it. Last year I used a finer chopped stuffing mix that did not go over well.

Gag!! That's on my banned list along with green bean casserole.


I have my list of traditional sides:


Mashed carrot & turnip (with butter)
Mashed butternut squash with maple syrup
Mashed skin-on red bliss potato (with butter and half & half)
Store bought stuffing with cooked/shelled chestnuts, mirpoix, sauvignon blanc, chicken stock, (and butter)
A bag of fresh cranberries for sauce substituting OJ for water and a splash of Grand Marnier at the end
Haricots verts steamed/sauteed in a bit of olive oil & water with toasted slivered almonds


I use the KitchenAid mixer pie crust recipe. I should use a Cuisinart and get a fluffier crust recipe.
Standard granny smith apple pie but with enough cinnamon to ride a sandworm in a Dune novel.
Pecan pie using the Karo bottle recipe but Penzey's double strength vanilla
Pumpkin pie using the recipe on the can but extra ginger and fresh grated nutmeg.
Ben & Jerry's vanilla ice cream
Cabot canned whipped cream


A lot of years, I'll grill boneless duck breast instead of bothering with roasting a turkey. Thanksgiving is all about the sides and I really don't care for turkey.


In a minimalist year, I'll just do my stuffing, carrot & turnip, cran sauce, and French green beans and toss a few duck breasts on the Weber.

Good thing we don't have to share a meal at Thanksgiving! I feel pretty much the same about your choices.

My Mom's family all bring their own thing and we share. So my contribution will be a butternut squash/egg/spinach fritatta, roasted root vegetables, and a gluten free almond blueberry bread/cake (my Mom eats gluten free).

I've made this at Christmas and it was a huge hit:

Sweet Potato Casserole recipe

Preheat oven to 425 F
2 large, sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into small pieces
4 cored, peeled, sliced apples
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp butter, separated into 2 tbsp and 2 tbsp.
1 chicken Knorr cube and 1 cup water (OR: 1 cup chicken broth)
2 tbsp flour
1/2 cup apple sauce
salt and pepper

Melt 2 tbsp butter in a small pot, stir in brown sugar until melted, then add apple sauce. In a buttered casserole dish, gently combine this with the apples and sweet potatoes.
Melt 2 tbsp butter in another small pot, stir in flour, and gradually add the chicken broth until smooth. Pour this evenly over the sweet potato mixture and bake, covered for 30 minutes at 425 F, then uncover and bake 20 more minutes.

Ok, since Thanksgiving food isn't necessarily healthy, and I only make this once a year, I don't feel too bad about it. My grandkids call it MiMi Corn and it's GREAT left over!

Two or three cans of shoepeg corn - I am sure you could use frozen or fresh shoepeg corn too but heck, I just use the canned version
A block of cream cheese
Pimentos
Chopped green chilis

Just put all that in a saucepan and heat it up till the cream cheese melts. I know it's horrible but it tastes delicious!

One thing that everyone demands in our family at Thanksgiving for dessert is homemade buttermilk pie. It's the easiest pie in the world to make. My dad always called it "calf slobber pie" which I know is disgusting but that's what we call it now!

Super easy to make. I can and sometimes do make my own pie crust but honestly, the prepared crusts work just as well.

Buttermilk Pie - Just like my Nanny used to make - The Coers Family
