    I open up a roll a put down a thin layer of mashed potatoes with a bit of gravy. I then place a slice of turkey and a slice of ham down on the potatoes and top it's off with mac n cheese and another layer of potatoes. Close the roll up and eat.
    After that, I think you are odd. 😂

    Deep fry it and you'll have a perfect State Fair booth!

    Hey don't knock it till ya try it! My brother saw me making it one time and said that it was weird, so I gave him one and he loved it. Now he makes a couple Thanksgiving rolls to eat each year


    I forgot to mention that stuffing is optional depending on how good it was made.

    Wait, is that Thanksgiving food or NC State Fair food?

    Damn, come to think of it, that needs to be dipped in batter and deep-fried and then served with a dipping sauce.

    Only if the dipping sauce is gravy.

    Added embellishment and more calories. Hope you don't mind.

    Doesn't seem like that big a deal. If you just delay your Thanksgiving meal by around 8 or 10 hours you should be fine. "Ok, it is 4am, everyone come on in for dinner!"
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Has anyone ever tried the mayonnaise turkey recipe? I've only ever heard amazing things about it and my sister in law tried it last year and loved it. Unfortunately I was with other family so I didn't get to try it.

    Simple version is basically take whatever poultry seasoning or whatever you like and mix it up with plenty of mayonnaise and rub it all over the turkey before cooking.

    On Thanksgiving 1973, we had been living in a newly constructed house for just a few months, and when my Mom turned the oven on to start dinner, nothing happened. Dad figured out that the problem was probably with the filament thingy that does the heating of the oven. And there's no possibility of buying one that day. So he somehow got into the house still under construction next door, pulled out the filament from its oven, installed it in our oven, and everything went on as planned.

    So, you are saying that by smothering my otherwise fairly bland food with a highly caloric and fatty substance I can make it taste better? I find this shocking as it runs counter to everything else I know about food.

    I bet it would really rock if you laid strips of bacon on top after your mayonnaise bath coat.

    You could double down on the bacon by using bacon fat in home made mayonnaise.

    That sounds more like TGiving dessert.

    I want just 1 person in here to try it and post back after Thanksgiving. Don't forget the optional stuffing, I only use it if the stuffing is well made.

    Sounds delicious. My favorite part of Thanksgiving is similar, it's a left-over sandwich on well-buttered white toast"

    Turkey
    Ham
    stuffing
    gravy
    cranberry sauce
    sometimes a nice cheese although usually not

    There we go! Granted I despise cranberry sauce but take it out for mashed potatoes and there we go!

And don't even get me started on Pumpkin Pie, which should be a year-round treat, but seems to go into hibernation other than Thanksgiving and maybe Christmas.

    If you think pumpkin pie could be a year-round treat, you're probably making it with canned pumpkin.. Nooooo. Go to your local farm store and get one of the small pie pumpkins and find out how good real pumpkin pie is!

    Before baking the turkey, loosen the skin on both breasts and slide that bacon under the skin.

    Or you could just deep fry the whole thing like I've been doing for 20 years now. I've got a tutorial on it I did for another BB forum if anyone wants me to post it here.
