A FULLY MADE AHEAD THANKSGIVING....except the bird!

Susanbnyc | Nov 16, 2006 12:32 AM

I am hosting 16 and will NOT have all day Thursday to put it together....AND...I have a 15 month old...so I am relagated to cooking during naps and late at night.... I need to make everything ahead...starting on Tuesday...doing a dish at a time..... any thoughts? (besides get a babysitter! lol)

I'll start....

Mashed Potato Cake...

I basicly saute a bunch of sweet onions, mash them into the baked potatos w/ butter and cream, salt and pepper and then pat the whole mess into a springform pan. I refridgerate up to 2 days before an event and then bake (warm) just for serving. I sometimes top w/ more sauteed onions.... It's yummy and everyone always loves it. Serve in slices...like cake.

*I was thinking of making it a layer cake for Thanksgiving...have one layer of mashed white...and one layer of mashed sweet.....
