1) The easiest fake cobbler you can make!
- This is my go-to dessert, and it has only 3 (yes 3!) ingredients!
- Yellow cake mix
- 1 stick of butter (melted)
- 2 cans of your favorite pie filling
- Spread pie filling along the bottom of a rectangular or square baking dish.
- Take the DRY cake mix and cover the pie filling (you may not need the entire package of cake mix).
- Drizzle the melted butter all over the top of the dry mix. Using a fork, spread the butter so the entire top is moist.
- Bake the concoction at 375 for about 30 minutes or until the topping is a golden brown color. Let cool, and serve! This is beyond delish with vanilla ice cream!
2) Cranberry-Barbecue Meatballs
- Again, another 3 ingredient recipe! These will be devoured, so you might need to double up!
- 1 can of jellied cranberry sauce
- 2 bottles of original flavor barbecue sauce
- 1 bag of frozen meatballs (of course, you can make your own if you so choose, but that takes the easy-peezyness out of it!)
- Combine the BBQ sauce and the cranberry sauce in a crockpot. Heat on high for about 20 mins.
- Once the sauce is mostly melted, throw in the meatballs. Cook in the crockpot for about 4 hours on high. Enjoy!
3) Spinach and Artichoke Dip
- Notoriously addictive, you can make this with little to no fat depending on your crowd!
- 2 packages of softened cream cheese (I go with fat free)
- 1 package of frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and drained of all water.
- 1 can of artichokes (forgo the ones that are sitting in oil and save some calories)
- 2-3 large spoonfulls of sour cream (again, I go with fat free)
- 2-3 large spoonfulls of Duke's mayo (I go full fat with this baby!)
- Shredded mozzarella cheese (part skim will melt pleasantly)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Put the cream cheese, the sour cream, and the mayo in the crockpot.
- Chop up the artichokes. I prefer a food processor, but if you don't have one, just chop them messily! Throw them into the crock pot with the stuff in step 1.
- Throw in the spinach. Stir everything up.
- Salt and pepper your concoction, top with the mozz cheese, and cook on high for about 2 hours; make sure you stir occassionally so you avoid burnage!
- Serve hot with pita chips or crackers!
4) The infamous sausage dip
- This is not a recipe I've created, nor do I make it. Ryan always makes this, and he got it from someone else! This will be completely devoured about 10 minutes after you serve it, so make an extra!
- 2 packages of softened cream cheese (go fat free!)
- 1 can of Rotell tomato stuff
- 1 package of hot/spicy pork sausage, cooked
- Combine above ingredients in a crockpot and cook on high for about 2 hours, or until creamy.
- Serve with tortilla chips, or Ryan's way with Fritos!
I hope everyone has a tasty and restful Thanksgiving!! Gobble Gobble!
