Roasted Squash Soup
Very Good 4.0/5
(61 ratings)

Try a two for one: The next time you are turning on the oven to 375 degrees, roast the squash, cool it slightly, peel and package to freeze. You'll have butternut squash on hand whenever you need it, and you can have dinner on the table in no time!

Very Good 4.6/5
(12 ratings)

For perfect results try using a V-rack in your roasting pan or roast the turkey on a bed of vegetables. Once the fat from the turkey melts, it falls to the bottom of the roasting pan. When that happens, the bottom quarter of the bird does not roast--it braises in its own juices. The vegetables or V-rack prevents this from happening.

Vegetable and Fruit Stuffing
Very Good 4.2/5
(39 ratings)

Whole wheat bread gives this side staying power. The fruits and vegetables bulk up the dish, so a little goes a long way. A bit of turkey bacon adds another layer of flavor without adding many calories.
