Thanksgiving Tailgate or the ‘Turkey Bowl’

 

This is a suggested menu and techniques for a successful Thanksgiving Dinner Tailgate or any other time. Of course every family has special items, these are just a few ideas from our families.

 

The 10”x15” field is perfect for your turkey, or most turkeys, either whole or sliced.

 

Use one of the ‘end zone’ areas for mashed potatoes and dressing. Make these in standard sized loaf pans so they can be easily replaced. Since everyone likes gravy, use both corners for it.

 

Down one set of sideline stands add some sides. We use sweet potatoes, corn and green beans, all prepared in loaf pans.

 

For the stands across the field, use one section for some sliced ham for the non-turkey folks. Use the second for your deviled eggs and stuffed celery. Use the third section for the ‘green plate’ of green and black olives, sweet and dill pickle spears. They all travel well in plastic containers and fit right into the stands.

 

Put your rolls in the other ‘end zone’ and use both since everyone likes rolls too. Finish with cranberries one corner and fruit salad in the other corner.

 

Helpful Hints: 1) Use one ice chest as a warming container. This makes it easy to keep your meal warm and have plenty of servings for everyone. 2) By using loaf pans for your warm items, they will stack easily. Separate the layers with cardboard, including one on the bottom. 3) Jars are recommended to easily transport cranberries, gravy etc. making it easier to add to the bowls in the corners and keep items ready to serve whether cold or warm.
