Bridal Shower Recipe Swap

Inspiration

The Holidays are Right Around the Corner

In light of this, I thought it would be fun to share some of our team’s favorite Thanksgiving family recipes! But before we dive in, fork in hand, I thought I would mention how great bridal shower recipe swap is! You can thank us later. Ok. But seriously. I hate being the one to always come up with what we are going to eat, it’s so nice to have a stockpile of recipes to use whenever. How cool is that so many of them actually have a story to go with them. Isn’t that one of the things the holidays are about? Family and tradition?

So if your planning a shower, or you need ideas for your own, keep this one in mind! You won’t regret it.

Ok to the good stuff….

Ingredients

Directions- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Stir in 1/2 cup of cheese and heat mixture for another 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer green bean mixture to a casserole dish and sprinkle with French fried onions and remaining cheese.

Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until the cheese melts and the onions just begin to brown.

Ingredients

Directions-  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Place sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes; drain. Transfer drained sweet potatoes to a baking sheet.

Bake sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until dried, 3 to 4 minutes; transfer to a mixing bowl.

Mash sweet potatoes with a potato masher until no large lumps remain; add sugar, allspice, and cinnamon. Continue mashing potatoes until evenly seasoned; spoon into a casserole dish. Spread miniature marshmallows in an even layer over the sweet potato mixture.

Bake in oven until marshmallows just begin to brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Switch oven to broil; cook under broiler for 1 minute.

  • 12 ounces Fresh Cranberries {1 bag}
  • ¾ cup Smucker’s Orange Marmalade

Directions-

Combine all ingredients in Crockpot, and Stir. Cook on high 3 hours, or until cranberries begin to pop.
After 3 hours or so… once cranberries begin to pop, gently smash cranberries up against the side of the crockpot to help the rest pop while you stir. Remove the lid, then cook on High for 30 minutes without the lid.
Stir, serve… and eat on top of anything your little heart desires!
If you have any leftover… store it in a mason jar in your refrigerator and use within 1 week.
