Thanksgiving: What do you make ahead?

jgg13 | Nov 11, 2009 08:13 AM

Just curious what dishes, etc different folks will make ahead of time. I've been doing the T-day dinner for a few years now and am always on the hunt for ways to make life easier on the day itself. :)

I always do all of my prep the night before, chopping vegetables and all of that sort of thing. Everything is premeasured and put in containers labeled w/ their use. I've taken to prepping the dressing the night (not cooked though), and last year made an onion gratin from food & wine ahead of time - basically you set it up, then the next day before heating sprinkle on the bread & bacon topping.

We hoping to see what sorts of dishes & shortcuts folks had, idea gathering as it were.
