Yum



Need new exciting side dishes for your Thanksgiving Menu?  I've got 10 to share. - Slice of Southern


One of the things I love about Thanksgiving are the traditions.  Food being one of them we have family favorites that HAVE to be made every year otherwise it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving.  One of those dishes is only made that one time of year, so we all wait with baited breath for that one dish!


Another thing I love about Thanksgiving is the ability to try NEW side dishes.  Since there are so many side dishes included with this meal I take the opportunity to throw one or two new dishes along with our standards.  These can be rotated out each year with more new recipes, and this keeps our menu interesting and fresh.


THANKSGIVING SIDE DISHES: 10 EXCITING NEW CHOICES


I'm happy to share with you some of the new side dishes that I've made over the years that have been a hit with the family and guests.  Try out some of these this year in addition to your standard menu.  Who knows, you might find a new favorite tradition!


Happy Thanksgiving!

I've brought you several of these before such as these Pumpkin Citrus Crescent Rolls and Lemon Blueberry Crescent Rolls, but today we are focusing on fall flavors and bringing in apple butter to the mix. Tender crescent rolls fresh from the oven and bursting with hot apple butter.  Yes please!  These treats are the perfect breakfast pastry, snack, or even dessert.  Everyone will love the cinnamon apple flavor, and if you want to take it up a notch add some sautéed apples that have been finely diced!  Heaven in a can.

Quick and Decadent Apple Butter Crescent Rolls

Makes 8

1 can of refrigerated crescent rolls (I used Pillsbury)
4 T of apple butter, homemade or jarred (I use this one


Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Unroll crescent rolls and separate each triangle.  Brush apple butter over each triangle.  You can use more or less to your taste. (Make sure not to use too much or it will ooze out!)  Roll up starting from the wide end and creating a crescent roll.

Place on a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Bake 8-10 minutes until golden brown.  Serve hot.

Easy Country Blueberry Pancakes


Yum

Fluffy, tender pancakes, bursting with hot blueberries and country flavor! A weekend breakfast staple.  Easy Country Blueberry Pancakes - Slice of Southern

Mom loved to gather recipes.  It was a hobby that she and all of her female relatives spent doing in their leisure time.  I remember mom talking with my aunt and grandma about a great recipe and writing them down on recipe cards.  I even remember mom getting recipe cards in the mail of treasured recipes from a distant relative like Aunt Grace who lived in Ponca, Oklahoma.

I spent a lot of time with mom re-writing all of those heirloom family recipes and want to share one with you today.

It's Sunday morning and the sun is trying to peak out.  Time for something hearty like eggs and bacon, but let's throw in some pancakes for good measure.  So I'm in the mood for something simple to make, but one that has been passed down.  Off to the recipe box to pull out my mom's Aunt Grace's recipe for Easy Country Blueberry Pancakes.

The ingredients are basic and readily available from your pantry, but the end result is an outstanding, country fresh pancake that is light and fluffy and bursting with blueberries.

Thanks to mom's Aunt Grace for an excellent family recipe that I'm proud to share with all of you.

Enjoy!




Easy Country Blueberry Pancakes
by Aunt Grace


1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 eggs (use large) 
1 1/4 cups milk (use whole milk) 
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup blueberries 
butter for the pan


In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.  Whisk to combine.  Add the eggs, milk, and melted butter.  Stir together until just combined.  Add the blueberries, and lightly fold in.  

Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat until hot.  Add a dab of butter to the skillet and spread around.  Pour batter for pancakes and allow to cook until bubbles form and the bottom is golden brown.  Flip pancakes over and cook until cooked through and golden brown, about 1 minute.  Serve with syrup.
