Thanksgiving may be my favorite holiday. Between the family bonding, the incredible food, and the ultimate itis, the entire day keeps me smiling. Aside from the traditional thanksgiving affair, including: turkey, sweet potatoes, and collard greens, I have started a mini tradition of my own. I cook something out of the ordinary as a side dish for our family thanksgiving meal.
This year I went with potato hash. It can be fun experimenting with a variety of potato hash recipes and ultimately, my choices were apples and bacon. Dishes featuring apples remind me of the fall. Bacon...well bacon is never a bad idea. When combined with the potatoes, it creates an explosion of flavor with a nice balance. Easy to make and easy to cook in large quantities. Enjoy!
