Thanksgiving Dinner Menu

Dressing vs Stuffing...What's the Difference?

Nothing....they are the same. Some believe that if it's cooked inside the bird, it should be called stuffing, while others believe that if its cooked outside the bird, then it should be called dressing.
Other times it comes down to location. In the South, cooks will call it dressing and New Englanders generally refer to this dish as stuffing. I'm from Wisconsin, and my family has always called it dressing.

Whether you call it stuffing or dressing it's really a matter of choice or a matter of your family's preference. Sometimes it comes down to tradition.....just like so many other dishes served for Thanksgiving Dinner. We can all call it one thing for sure.......Delicious!

Leftover Turkey Shepherd’s Pie

Elizabeth here again, writing on behalf of ReadySetEat!  Today, I wanted to share a recipe for Leftover Turkey Shepherd’s Pie because, while leftover Thanksgiving food is delicious, you might get just a little tired of it after eating turkey for five days straight.  That’s where this recipe comes in.  You’ve already done all the work to make the turkey so this dish won’t take long to make at all—it’ll be ready in thirty-five minutes, in fact.

Apple Fritters

Today I have a fun and delicious recipe to share with you. Apple Fritters~
I love apple fritters and have wanted to try making them at home for a long time.
This recipe, to me, is more reminiscent of sugar donuts that I ate as a kid.

The apple fritters turned out great! Light, delicious and really easy to make, not at all like the apple fritters you can buy at the bakery.....which is a good thing for me because I absolutely love the apple fritters found at the bakery:)

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cornmeal
2 T sugar
2 t baking powder
1/8 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
2 large egg whites
1 large tart cooking apple, finely chopped
1 cup low-fat milk or almond milk
vegetable oil
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 t ground nutmeg

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, 2 T sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
In a medium bowl, combine egg whites, apple, and milk.
Add to flour mixture all at once and stir just until combined

In a deep 12-inch cast iron skillet, heat 1 inch vegetable oil over moderate high heat to 375 F
or until a 1-inch cube of bread browns in 30 seconds.
Carefully drop the batter by heaping tablespoons, several at a time, into hot oil.
Cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.
Using a slotted spoon or wire mesh ladle, remove and drain on paper towels.

In a paper or plastic bag, combine the 1/3 cup sugar and nutmeg. Add the hot fritters, several at a time, and shake to coat.
Serve warm.
