This one is different.  Instead of me posting a recipe, I want yours.  

What is your single favorite Thanksgiving recipe?

I love roast goose.  We started a new tradition last year of serving goose instead of turkey.

Once the goose is thawed, use pliers to remove any pin feathers still in the skin.  Prick lightly all over, piercing the skin but not the meat.  This allows the fat under the skin to render out, leaving lean meat on the bones and about a quart of goose fat (great for cooking!) in the pan.  Rub all over with salt.  Put an apple in the cavity (to soak up goose fat, this apple will inedible by the time the goose is done).  Remove visible lumps of fat from around the cavity opening (save and render out for another cup or so of goose fat).

Preheat oven to 450 F.  Roast goose for 15 minutes at 450, then turn down to 350 and cook until bird is done, an hour to 2 hours based on weight (use the same tables as for turkey).  Allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving; it's best to carve the bird in the kitchen and bring the meat to the table as goose joints are much tighter than on a turkey and you really don't want your splended goose to go flying across the table!

We don't do traditional Thanksgiving dinners, we do lobster becuase we eat turkey year round... Ironically, last year I bought two turkeys in November which were organic and on sale at Whole Foods, I thought I could use them the throughout the year. Mid November rolled around and the NICU ran out of room to store all of the milk I had frozen... So I had to start storing it at home, both of the turkeys had to be thawed and consumed by early December. I don't think I can stand the thought of a turkey now. I'm already nauseous just thinking about it.... 

I do love green bean almondine.

We don't do lobster because of kashrut but that's an awesome tradition.  :-)  I've heard of Italian-American families whose centerpiece dish is lasagna.  :-)  :-)

My aunt makes broccoli rice in the crock pot. It disappears every year. Sometimes I don't get any!

Here is your recipe for BROCCOLII RICE CASSEROLE...

Recipe is for the amount she makes in crock pot you can cut in half if wanted...

Ingredients you need.
Two Sticks of butter
Celery - 4 -6 stalks chopped
One large onion or two medium onions (White Onion or Sweet Onion)

1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup
1 Can of Cream of Celery Soup
1 Large box of Velveeta Cheese unless your cutting recipe in half..
1 Large Bag of Frozen Brocolli
1 Large Can of Mushrooms, chopped.


In a dutch oven/large pot melt two sticks of butter along with 1 large or two medium onions chopped and 4 to 6 stalks of celery chopped and one large can of mushrooms saute on low to medium until the onion and celery are sauteed nicely.

Lower the heat and add one can of cream of celery and one can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 1/2 cups of instant rice and one large block of Velveeta cheese that is chopped up into small squares to melt in pan easier. Then add one large bag of frozen chopped broccoli. Depending on how much your making.

stove top till heated through then to crock pot on low till ready to eat. Probably in crock pot at least two hours..


If you make half size order I would do 1 can of cream of mushroom or just one can of cream of celery... not both... But up to you..
