With Thanksgiving in just a few days away, here are a couple last minute Thanksgiving menu ideas! Our traditional meal includes turkey, ham, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, rolls, green bean casserole, corn and salad. For dessert we have several varieties of pies from pumpkin to pecan. We all help out with the meal by bringing different dishes.
I want to share a couple of delicious Thanksgiving recipes that I made using Country Crock Spread. The first one is a twist on the traditional twice baked potato. My family loves instant mashed potatoes to I came up with Loaded Potato Jars.
Ingredients: instant mashed potatoes, milk, Country Crock Spread, shredded cheese, green onions, sour cream, salt, bacon and pepper.
**Update: I recently learned that Ball mason jars are NOT oven safe, so I recommend only serving the potatoes in the jars for a fun presentation.
Prepare the desired amount of instant mashed potatoes according to the instructions on the package. Stir shredded cheese, sour cream, bacon and pepper into the mashed potatoes. Continue heating until the cheese is melted and the mixture is hot. Spoon the mixture into jars and top with more shredded cheese and bacon. Top with chopped green onions before serving.
