Thanksgiving Recipes

Whipped Butter Nut Squash
  • 2 butternut squash, halved and seeded
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place squash halves cut side down in a medium baking dish with enough water to cover. Cover, and bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, until tender.
  3. Scoop squash from skin into a medium bowl, and mix with margarine and light sour cream. Whip until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
                                                  Slow cooker sweet potatoes with applesauce
6          medium (2 pounds) sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 1/2    cups applesauce
2/3       cup packed brown sugar
3          tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1          teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2      cup chopped nuts, toasted

Place sweet potatoes in 2- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker. Mix remaining ingredients except nuts; spoon over potatoes.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until potatoes are very tender.   Sprinkle with nuts.

These are a couple of recipes I plan to fix for Thanksgiving this year.  I especially love recipes I can cook in the crock pot, it frees my ovens for other dishes.  If you have any favorite recipes please share.  I love to try new things.
