Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole with Bourbon

We just had this dish with our Thanksgiving Dinner. All agreed this was the best-ever incarnation of a classic dish. I substituted heavy cream for the milk and added a little brown sugar. The orange zest gave it a sparkling character. Freshly grated nutmeg is indeed a must.

What is Your Favorite Non-Foodie Thanksgiving Dish?

I'm waxing nostalgic on the eve of TG....We always adored "Honeymoon Salad" It too has a dressing of sour cream but included Cool Whip. The fruits never varied and were Maraschino cherries, pineapple tidbits, and mandarin oranges. Add sweetened flaked coconut, mini marshmallows and chopped pecans. It is very rich indeed.

Our other low-brow favorite is corn pudding made from :
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can cream corn
1 stick butter
1 (8 oz.) pkg. sour cream
1 box Jiffy corn bread mix
Bke 45 mins at 350
