Thanksgiving Dinner!

This year, we had out second annual "Second Thanksgiving." We spent Thanksgiving with Ryan's family and had a wonderful time seeing everyone. Saturday, we had a few close friends over for a second Thanksgiving feast. Here is the menu:

Grilled Turkey

The store was out of cajun butter, so we made our own to inject in the turkey before it hit the grill.

1 cup butter, melted
2 tsp Tony's
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp white pepper
2 Tbsp Kosher Salt

We injected the marinade in the turkey about an hour before the grilling started. We placed the turkey in a foil pan, covered it with foil, grilled it at 300 degrees for about 5 hours. It tasted amazing!!!

Crack Potatoes

I found this amazing recipe on Pinterest...shocker. And it is so addicting. Watch out. I made it according to the original recipe, but next time this is how I will make it.

2 16 oz containers sour cream
1 ranch dip mix
2 pkg bacon bits
2 cups shredded cheese
30 oz pkg frozen hashbrowns

Mix sour cream, ranch dip mix, bacon, and cheese. Stir in hashbrowns. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 400 for 50-60 minutes or until bubbly. Don't eat it all in one sitting:)

I made cornbread dressing and can find the recipe from this post last year.

Second Thanksgiving was a huge success!
