Old School Thanksgiving Recipes

I’m a child of the…decade from the past and I have an appreciation for the old school Thanksgiving Menu. Since my mom’s recipes are not public, I found some great close enough recipes to share. ¬†There may be a couple of items that were not served at my mom’s house, but I included them anyway since I’m a sucker for nostalgia. I have been known to mix it up and bring in something modern and new, but anyone who has celebrated Thanksgiving with me knows that my momma’s cornbread stuffing is not to be messed with – there will be no apples or sausage allowed! Get some great recipes that have been around for a while after the jump…
