Turkey Day Recipes from your Apartments in South Austin

  |     |   Uncategorized


Here at CityView at SoCo Austin apartments, we think you should go outside the box for your Thanksgiving meal contribution. You could go to the store, grab a pumpkin pie, and call it a day. That’s certainly one way to do it, and a reasonable option for someone who forgot that it was Thanksgiving Day. If you’re looking to impress your family and earn some compliments, however, that’s not the way to go.


Show off your adulting skills by making one of the recipes laid out below. In the latest blog post from your community of apartments in South Austin, we’re going to tell our readers about four different recipes that are anything but traditional. We promise that no one else will think to make these recipes, meaning you’ll get all the compliments to yourself.


Making these recipes will take some work, but we think it’s worth it. Check out the list of recipes below, and please be sure to share this blog with your neighbors at CityView at SoCo.


Mashed Potato Casserole


Before you start, head to the nearest H-E-B and grab these ingredients:


  • Russet Potatoes

  • Butter

  • Sour Cream

  • Milk

  • Garlic Powder

  • Salt

  • Cheddar Cheese

  • Panko Bread Crumbs

  • Chives

  • Bacon


We’ll start with something easy. This recipe involved a lot of bacon and potatoes, so you know it’s going to be good. You’ve probably experienced plenty of casseroles at Thanksgiving dinners, but we doubt you’ve ever had one made with mashed potatoes. However, mashed potatoes are the perfect base for a casserole. It’s time they got their moment in the spotlight, or dinner plate, as it were.


Sausage-Stuffed Baked Apples


Before you start, head to the nearest H-E-B and grab these ingredients:


  • Oil

  • Celery

  • Onion

  • Sausage

  • Stuffing

  • Chicken broth

  • Granny Smith Apples


We’re jumping from a simple casserole to something a little more complicated. This recipe asks you to hollow out apples, which is no easy task. Once you’ve done that, the recipe is actually pretty simple. You’ll make the sausage stuffing and fill the apples with it, then throw your stuffed apples into the oven until they’re nice and crispy.


Apple Pie Salsa with Cinnamon Chips


Before you start, head to the nearest H-E-B and grab these ingredients:


  • Granny Smith Apples

  • Lemon Juice

  • Brown Sugar

  • Butter

  • Cinnamon

  • Nutmeg

  • Cornstarch

  • Vanilla

  • Whipped Cream

  • Sugar

  • Tortillas


This is our weirdest recipe yet, but there’s no denying its deliciousness. This recipe uses the term “salsa” very loosely, as the final product doesn’t resemble salsa at all. Instead, this recipe produces a sweet dip in which you can dunk your cinnamon chips. The chips are actually real tortilla chips, by the way, they’re just covered in cinnamon and butter. This recipe makes for a great dessert or a pre-dinner snack, so try it out and amaze your family members with your cooking prowess.


Sausage & Oyster Stuffing


  • Sausage

  • Parsley

  • Thyme

  • Sage

  • Rosemary

  • Celery

  • Lemon

  • Onion

  • Day-Old-Bread

  • Oysters

  • Egg

  • Butter

  • Chicken Stock

  • Salt & Pepper


Put a twist on the classic stuffing dish by throwing some seafood in there. With this dish, fresher is better, so go to the deli to get your oysters. We recommend keeping this stuffing a secret from your family until it’s served, and wait for them to shower you with compliments over your unique take on stuffing.
