Not Canadian but I use herb and garlic cream cheese in my mashed potatoes. Milk, butter, salt and the cream cheese gives it that extra ooomph. Nice user name by the way πŸ˜‰

I’m going to my sister’s house, no cooking for me, lol!!! We’re having turkey (and ham it sounds like), likely some veggies, salad, scalloped potatoes, etc. I love doing roasted veggies in the crockpot. My mom is bring a chocolate cake for my birthday for dessert πŸ™‚ I love making this cranberry sauce when we host holiday meals. It’s so yummy!!!

Are there any specific foods Canadians eat at Thanksgiving?  Like in America, I would say turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing/dressing are all pretty standard. 

If you like sweet potatoes, I have a killer recipe I make for every Thanksgiving (and at random points throughout the year).  πŸ™‚

@bakerella eeeek I really do not get why people put sugar and marshmellows etc on sweet potatoes. I love them savory with garlic and paprika, they are sweet enough already!

This is the BEST pumpkin pie. It’s light and fluffy and not so heavy and filling as traditional pie.

Pumpkin Nut Chiffon Pie                            

                             

Nut Crust:

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

¾ cup finely chopped pecans

1/4 cup melted butter

Chiffon Filling:

4  medium eggs, separated

1 cup sugar, divided

 2 cups mashed, cooked pumpkin

½ cup light cream

½  tsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg

1 Tbsp finely chopped crystallized ginger

1 Tbsp unflavoured gelatin

¼ cup cold water

1/2 cup chopped pecans

 

For nut crust, combine all ingredients. Press Into 9 inch pie pan .Bake at 375deg. F. For 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool.

In the top of a double boiler, beat egg yolks with ½  cup of the sugar and salt, until mixture is very thick, three to five minutes.  Blend in pumpkin, cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and Ginger. Set pan over simmering water. Stir and cook  mixture until it begins to clear the sides of the pan.

Soften gelatin in water and add it to the pumpkin mixture, stirring until dissolved. Let mixture cool completely and stir in nuts.

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add remaining ½ cup sugar, a little at a time, beating until whites are stiff. Fold them into cooled pumpkin mixture. Spread filling in pie shell and chill several hours or overnight. Decorate with whipped cream if desired.

@lefeymw: Me too! I go straight up with butter and rock salt. Mmmmmmm!!!!! I’ll have to try garlic and paprika. Do you do minced garlic or garlic powder? I might try it tonight!

@Mrs. Spring: LOL! Except that I have a terrible habit of adding “eh” onto the end of sentences πŸ˜‰
