Thanksgiving recipe favorites

2 days until the big FEAST YOU GUYS.

All I've had on my mind these days is FOOD so it's no surprise that I'm itching for a good Thanksgiving food coma. I thought what better way to await the big day than sharing some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes?! 

Ever since one of my best pals shared her mac n cheese recipe with me years ago I've added it to our Thanksgiving menu every year (Thanks Ann!!!). Not only is it one of my favorite comfort foods of all time but it is always better the next day... and you know leftovers are a Thanksgiving must.

Serves 6-8 people

What you need...

1 8oz package elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
1-2 10oz cans of cream of chicken or mushroom (or both!)
1 8oz serving sour cream
2 8oz bags of shredded cheese, your choice
french fried onions, optional

What you do...

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cook and drain your macaroni. 

Pour it into a large bowl and mix with creamed soup, sour cream, milk and one bag of cheese. Feel free to adjust the amount of soup and milk based on the thickness. 

Grease a large casserole or baking pan. Pour macaroni mixture in and top with the other bag of cheese. Add french fried onions if you'd like. 

Cover with tinfoil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove tin foil and bake an additional 5 minutes, or until all the cheese is melted and the top is golden brown. 

You really can't go wrong with this one. And feel free to go nuts with add ins! 
Bacon, hello!

Also, for big parties and Thanksgiving I definitely suggest doubling it because there will be NONE left.

Serves 6-8 people

What you need...

4 cans green beans, drained
1-2 10oz cans cream of mushroom
half a package of bacon, cooked
french fried onions, optional

What you do...

Preheat your oven to 350°.

Cook off the bacon, set aside and chop roughly. If you're feeling real cray cray, save some of the bacon grease and mix it in with your green bean mixture.

Mix together all the green beans, cream of mushroom and most of your bacon. Grease a casserole or large baking dish and pour your green bean mixture in. Top with bacon and french fried onions if you wish. Cover with foil and bake 25-30 minutes, or until bubbling. Remove the foil to brown the onions a bit and you're done!

This recipe is so simple but SO delicious. My mom makes it every year and it's always one of my favorites.

Can you even decipher all the ridiculousness on that classy plate?! 

Turkey leg cheers,
