“I’ve tried fancy stuffing recipes for our Thanksgiving bird, but none hits the spot like my mother’s simple mixture of bread, eggs and caramelized vegetables,” says field editor Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia.
Field editor Sharon Manus of Smyrna, Tennessee seasons beef patties with onion, fresh mushrooms and golden mushroom soup. The tasty entree makes a quick and hearty meal when served over mashed potatoes with a salad or veggie on the side.
