Send Me Your Favorite Thanksgiving Day Recipe and I'll post it on my blog!

It's that time of year when our attention turns to FOOD.  Copious amounts of food! So for all of you who follow this blog I have a special invitation!  Send me your favorite Thanksgiving Day Recipe and I will post it here for everyone to see and share. Feel free to add any comments to your recipe (such as, this was my great grandmother's recipe who came over from Eastern Europe, etc.) or any kind of background about it or how your family likes it. 

I'm especially interested in recipes that are traditional but also with something a little different. I'll group them by category. The most unusual recipe will win a free copy of one of my books (your pick), personally autographed.

Looking forward to seeing what you all send it! Email your recipes to: thevictorbook@sbcglobal.net

RECIPE SUBMISSIONS:


Sides:

Sometime our family has included with not only Thanksgiving but Christmas dinners for the several years now is this version of sweet potoato or yams called "Sweet Potatoes to Die For."

3 cups of cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

In separate bowl, mix the following together:
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup butter

In a glass cooking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray, pour the potato mixture, smooth out. Pour the topping mixture over the potatoes, spreading as well as you can. The topping mixture will have a tendency to clump together and you may add small amounts of butter, stirring well, until you can get it to the texture that will spread. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes.

Enjoy...Beverly
