#1 Here's my "go to" Thanksgiving menu.
These dishes have been made over and over and over again. The dip made its first appearance last year and was yummy and easy. Appetizers are great if you are having people over early to watch one of the 3 football games.
2. Super delicious light fluffy rolls (make extra of these if you are having a small group over - they freeze wonderfully & if you make the extras bigger than all the rest - they are the perfect hamburger buns.

3. Hot (not spicy) Italian Cheesy Dip
4. Buttermilk Sausage Cornbread Stuffing
