THANKSGIVING QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
What Thanksgiving recipes can I make ahead of time?
- Homemade Dinner Rolls can be made a week or two in advance and frozen in Ziploc freezer gallon bags. These homemade rolls thaw beautifully and can be warmed in an oven and brush with melted butter before serving.
- The sauce for the Green Bean Casserole can be made several days ahead of time and just refrigerated until ready to assemble. When ready to cook the green bean casserole, just heat the mushroom sauce and toss it with the cooked green beans and top with fried onions and then bake in the oven.
- Homemade Pumpkin Pie can be made one to two days before serving. My famous Pumpkin Pie Recipe needs time to chill so it is best to be made the day before.
- Classic Apple Pie can be made the day before. Just cover well so the pie crust stays fresh.
- Stuffing can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. Just know that the bread or cornbread will soak in all of the liquids so before baking the day of, I suggest adding more chicken broth to the mixture to give it moisture.
- Creamed Corn can be made days ahead of time. Once the creamed corn chills in the refrigerator, it will thicken so you may want to add a splash of heavy cream while reheating.
- Honey Glazed Carrots can be made days ahead of time. The butter will solidify in the refrigerator but will melt once you heat the carrots.
- The Sweet Potatoes can be cooked and mashed with the butter, sugar, and cream ahead of time and placed in a covered container in the refrigerator. On Thanksgiving Day, you can place the sweet potatoes in a baking dish and top it with the pecan praline, and bake.
- The homemade Cranberry Sauce can be made a week in advance. It will solidify once it is chilled.
- If you are making cream pies where you need to blind-bake the homemade pie crust ahead of time, you can bake them a day or two before Thanksgiving.
** I do suggest making the mashed potatoes and turkey the day of as they are best fresh.
