    mmmmmmm Turkey and bacon.

    Usually we end up buying a 25 lb bird and it's a pain to find one that big so this year the plan is to buy two smaller birds and my dad is also thinking of buying the already brined one from Trader Joe's for one of them. He's also big on cooking beer can chickens on the bbq and is contemplating doing a beer can turkey using like a Fosters can or another one of the giant beer cans. Bacon would probably go well with the beer can turkey.

    Hey Ketel, do yourself a favor and take 3 heads of garlic, cut off the top 1/4 of the heads, coat with olive oil, salt & pepper, and roast in the oven for about an hour at 350. Mash up the roasted garlic with a fork and add to the potatoes. YUM!

    Yeah those are good, but similar to what we always do if we don't do something of the scalloped variety. And there's no smoked gouda in that method. Hehe. I might make the garlic ones this weekend though. Yum.

    Super Easy!

    3 heads garlic with the tops cut off
    2-3 tablespoon olive oil
    2-3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (Peeled or unpeeled, your preference) Cut into cubes
    1 stick butter, cubed
    1/2 to 3/4 cup heavy cream or Milk.
    Salt and pepper

    Roast the Garlic in the oven for an hour at 350 with the top 1/4 of the head cut off. Coat with olive oil, salt & pepper. Once roasted, let cool for a bit and use a small spoon to get each head out of the paper or just squeeze the entire head of garlic. The garlic will be the consistency of peanut butter.

    Boil the potatoes till done (depends on the size of your cut potatoes) stick a fork in, if it goes in easy, the potatoes are done.

    Drain the water, mash up by hand or with a mixer with the cream or milk, butter, s&p, and finally the mashed up garlic.

    Enjoy!

    Don't forget, after you drain the potatoes in a colander, throw them back in the pot and turn the fire back on and steam out some of the excess water that will still be in the potatoes.

    Homemade mashed potatoes are the best, no matter what you add to them.

    We've done the twice baked potato casserole I saw on an Emeril episode, although we usually will do that one at Christmas. Twice baked potatoes are kind of a pain to make, this way it's a little less painful because you don't have to be so particular about not tearing the potato skins when you're scooping them out. You could also probably just boil the potatoes like you would for mashed potatoes to cook them the 1st time. He uses cheddar cheese but the concept would be easy enough to tweak and use other cheeses and various seasonings.
