Organizing the Cooking of Your Thanksgiving Meal

Find pans/baking dishes that fit into your oven somewhat like a puzzle, allowing for air flow. Now create your menu to make ALL of these "casseroles" to bake at the same time.


Your turkey can be baked the night before reserving some broth. Cover it well, refrigerate then add the broth the next day before microwaving as all those "casseroles" come out of the oven at once.

Mashed potatoes can be reheated as a "casserole", just add cream cheese while mashing. Everything done all at once...just like Mom could do SO easily!

Thank you for this tip re: cooking the turkey the night before! I have looked everywhere on the internet on how to do this. I still have a couple of questions , if you don't mind. Do you carve the turkey or leave it whole , with the broth , overnight. Also, are you using the cooking juices from the turkey or chicken broth ? I have had turkey that is in a broth at Amish buffet resturants, and it is so moist and tender. I think this is what you are speaking of. Thank you again!
