Felix-your dinner looks delicious! I wasn't making a comment on a non turkey dinner, I was commenting about a turkey dinner that doesn't need changing, in my opinion. Mine is usually simple-no new herbs, no weird stuffing, etc.Just my take!

For this year's Thanksgiving, I won't be at my parents' place in Iowa.  Instead, I'm heading to St. Louis to see an old friend who I haven't visited since before he had his twins.
 
Getting a White Castle Crave Case (30 sliders) had become a standard part of my visits. This year, we are giving serious consideration to combining one tradition with another, and giving this a try:
 

 
I'm excited and terrified!

As well you should be, considering how much celery that recipe calls for.

There are those here who will never accept what I am going to say, but I shall say it anyway. It's really good.When White Castle was first running its recipe contests this was one of the winners. I was among the press invited to be a judge. I don't want it in my turkey, but it really is good.

My family made it one year.  It wasn't bad at all.  It definitely needed more broth than the recipe calls for if you aren't putting it in the bird (which we did not) and i am thinking we most likely cut down on the amount of celery.  But we definitely liked it.  It hasn't made a return to the menu as the number of sides were making was getting out of hand.  I think this was one of three stuffings made that year.  And with fewer people attending and my stomach a tenth of the size it used to be, the menu needs to shrink for sure.

Well, I'd try it.While it doesn't sound appealing, MH, if you say it's good, I'm willing to give it a try. Let's not judge a book by its cover!

Is that like the one where you stuff the turkey with popcorn?  When the a** end blows off the turkey is done!

This is what I've made so far.  I have a hash brown casserole in the oven for the morning after Thanksgiving along with a cauliflower cheese thing.

I still have to prep the turkey but I did get the stock, potatoes, and stuffing/dressing done today. For some reason the turkey has been slow to thaw this year but it should be ready to go into the roaster by 6:30 tomorrow morning.. A cauliflower cheese thing sounds good!

So, in addition to the White Castle stuffing, I'm considering trying out this recipe for green bean casserole, assuming I can pull it off:
 
http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2010/11/homemade-green-bean-casserole-recipe.html
 
It's a far cry from the classic combo of canned green beans, Campbell's cream of mushroom soup, and Durkee French-fried onions (are they even still Durkee?). 
 
Anyone making good ol' GBC this year and/or have any good versions of it?

French's bought the Durkee label some years back.
 
My mom's bringing the GBC tomorrow but I'm sure she uses the traditional recipe.  The restaurant where my younger daughter works makes a really good version; sometimes I'll go there and get it and their mac & cheese for dinner.

I don't have to thaw a turkey.  We always get a fresh Amish turkey.  They are truly delicious.

Do you cook it with the hat and beard still attached?
 
My employer hands out frozen turkeys every Thanksgiving so it's nice to not have to worry about buying one, but someday I'd like to try cooking a fresh one.

The core ingredient for the stuffing has been acquired.  Let's see how it turns out...

If frozen, put it in your freezer and save it for another day. 
 
We have been ordering our turkey fresh for the past several years and pick it up at Mackenthun's Meat & Deli near our home. We order Ferndale Market Farm turkeys out of Cannon Falls, MN. Never frozen, free range kind. We first did it as a lark because they are way so expensive, but after the first one we can't go back. They are different. Thanksgiving deserves the best you can buy. It is just one day a year.

So is it a bad thing if the turkey finishes well ahead of schedule?
 
I'm using my mom's Nesco roaster for the first time and the 12-pound stuffed turkey I put in 3 hours ago is already showing safe temperatures everywhere.  It'll keep warm so I'm not too worried but now we're having dinner at noon instead of 12:30.
