For me, holidays are all about family. And in my family, it’s all about the food and sharing the comfort of a meal together. Thanksgiving has always been a favorite holiday of mine. From re-creating my Grandmother’s stuffing to baking that traditional pumpkin pie and drinking hot apple cider, there’s something about those flavors and aromas in the air that bring back wonderful old memories of this holiday.
And every year, I can look forward to Thanksgiving being one of my favorite memories. This year we will be celebrating with my husband’s family in Silver Springs, Nevada. Somehow, we will manage to fit a dozen or so people around the dinner table and enjoy some traditional Thanksgiving favorites. This year, I was asked to bring a Pumpkin Soup and Bread. I haven’t decided quite yet, which recipe I’ll make, but my first challenge will be in transporting it 3 1/2 hours away. The rest is easy as pie.

If you don’t have one of those stores near you, you can go to Raley’s website and click the tab SE Mag and review the magazine there. The recipes are a little bit harder to read online unless you use the zoom feature so I thought it was about time I share it here on my kitchen tips site.

Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until cooked thoroughly. Drain, reserving 1 tbsp. drippings from pan; let cool.
Meanwhile, heat oil and 1 tbsp. butter in another large skillet over medium heat. Add celery, onion and apple and cook for about 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

Scoop 1/4 cup stuffing onto each cutlet. Roll up and secure with a toothpick; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Add remaining 1/2 tbsp. butter in the same skillet used to brown the sausage. Brown turkey rolls on all sides over medium-high heat. Cover skillet and reduce heat to low; cook for an additional 10 minutes or until done. Remove toothpicks before serving.

Recipe tip: This recipe make a large amount of stuffing. If you are not using all of the stuffing, freeze and use anoter time. If you’d like to serve it along side the cutlets, bake remaining stuffing in a buttered 2 -quart casserole dish at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
