Even though I have been cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my family for years now, I am always looking for new recipes and time saving ideas. I love all the baking and cooking but learned a long time ago how much nicer it is to be prepared, even making a lot of the casseroles and such ahead of time, pretty much on Thanksgiving day cooking the turkey is the main task, just about everything else just needs to be heated up. Here are some good ideas and recipes I found from Epicurious.

ooh, thanks for posting!
my mom and i usually do a production list of everything that can be done ahead of time, and i come over the day before. its *so* much more relaxing to only have a turkey to prepare on thanksgiving.

This is one of the best recipes for a Sweet Potato casserole I've ever used. It's another one that my Mom started using years ago for Thanksgiving and it has been a tradition ever since. You could probably cut the recipe in half has this does make a lot, it's delicious!

Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline Topping

Potato Mixture

3 large eggs

5 lbs. fresh sweet seet potatoes, baked or boiled,peeled and mashed( I pierce them with a knife and bake them for about an hour-depending on their size, until done.)

2/3 cup of granulated sugar

2/3 cup butter or margarine-melted

1/3 cup heavy cream

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. each--ground nutmeg & allspice

Topping

1 cup light brown sugar

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1 cup finely chopped pecans

1/3 cup butter or margarine-cut in small pieces

Heat oven to 350*, grease a shallow 2 Qt. baking dish. Beat eggs in a large bowl with electric mixer. Add mashed sweet potatoes and beat until blended, add remaining ingredients--sugar, melted butter, heavy cream, vanilla, nutmeg and allspice. Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking dish. in a medium bowl, mix sugar, flour and nuts, work in butter with your hands or fork until it's crumbly, sprinkle evenly over potato mixture. Bake 60 to 70 minutes, topping will be browned and bubbling. Enjoy!

Makes 12 servings
