Happy Thanksgiving! We started the celebration a little bit early with our Taste Buddies friends. Today, we made Turkey Pies, Glazed Green Beans and Carrots, and Pumpkin Pie. I always ask our Taste Buddies friends what their favorite part of class was, and I was thrilled today when most said the vegetables were their favorite part!
These are great recipes that you can make for your friends and family next week as well. Hope it is a wonderful holiday season for all!
TURKEY MASHED POTATO PIES:
This is a wonderful recipe for leftovers! You can throw everything into a mini pie dish and serve it as pot pies. We used dressing, turkey, gravy, and potatoes in our pot pies. You can even put leftover vegetable dishes into the mix as well. Serve with cranberry sauce for a delightful leftover meal!
GLAZED CARROTS & GREEN BEANS:
This is one of my favorite ways to serve vegetables during the holidays. One of our Taste Buddies tried carrots for the very first time in class, due to the delicious glaze! A little brown sugar and butter goes a long way, so don't feel like you have to use the full amount the recipe calls for.
We made homemade crust in class with butter and graham crackers mashed together. You can even serve pre-made pumpkin pie mix on a graham cracker with some homemade whipped cream for an after dinner treat. Yum!
