“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 Lillian Julow of Gainesville, Florida.
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.
MY MOTHER, grandson and I put out heads and hearts together and after several tries, we came up with our version of oven fried chicken. We tweaked the ingredients until the gravy was tasty and the chicken was nicely browned and tender.
"This is the most delicious turkey I've ever had. I came up with it because my family loves macadamia nuts. The sage garlic butter rub gives the turkey a lovely taste."

I can still remember how happy it made my mom to cook something special for a family gathering. My parents were ranchers all their lives, so almost every main dish featured beef. This is Mom's recipe for tender Swedish meatballs with a thick savory gravy.
