Another holiday, another trip to the in-laws.
FIL does a baked Turkey with Dressing
One SIL does Gumbo
One SIL is responsible for the vegs and salads
The other SIL brings brisket, meatballs and/or ham from Sams
I always try to bring something a bit different. Not too worried if everyone loves it, just want them to taste something they may never cook for themselves (or find in the Sams frozen food section)
I thought about doing some smoked turkey cutlets topped with yellow corn cheese grits and turkey gravy
Smoked ham cutlets topped with corn pudding and red eye gravy.
I would smoke the turkey breast and ham the day before. I think the key is to make sure the grits and corn pudding are finished in a flat pan in the oven to firm them up so they can be cut with a cookie cutter.
I need something that will hold up to a two hour drive and then sit a couple of hours before warming in the oven.
Are these dishes something you would consider?
