Frugal and Easy Thanksgiving Recipes
Here it is - that time of year when everyones thoughts turn to food! Im thankful that at our house, we have plenty of food, but sometimes I am not so grateful that I am the one who usually gets to cook it!
So I am always on the lookout for simple, tasty recipes that are also easy on the budget. Here are a few of my familys favorites:
Melt butter in large saucepan and add onion and green pepper. Cook until tender. Add other ingredients and cook on low for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
Pour into greased 2-quart baking dish and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly.
Sweet Potato Casserole
Drain sweet potatoes and mash. Add other ingredients and mix well. Pour into ungreased 9" square baking pan. Mix all topping ingredients till crumbly. Spread on yams then bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
Tip: You can make this the day before. Just refrigerate till you are ready to bake.
This one is perfect for supper the night before Thanksgiving.
Harvest Time Soup
Bring water, potatoes, carrots and celery to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer till vegetables are tender.
Add cheese and ham; cook, stirring till cheese is melted.
This makes about 4 servings, but it could easily be cut in half or doubled.
