1 (1.5 lb.) fully-cooked, extra lean ¼-hickory-smoked turkey breast, cut into ½” thick slices
sprinkling of poultry seasoning

***Deviled Eggs:
4 eggs
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sweet pickle relish
pinch of garlic powder, and onion powder
¼ teaspoon lemon juice
kosher salt and ground pepper, to taste
--garnish: paprika, and freshly chopped parsley

1 (6 oz. bag) seasoned dressing cubes
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup onion, finely chopped
½ cup celery, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning
1-1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth (more if you like moister dressing)
--garnish: freshly chopped parsley

***Smashed Potatoes:
2 large russet potatoes, peeled, and cut into ½” cubes for faster boiling
¼ cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sour cream
½ teaspoon garlic powder
kosher salt and ground pepper, to taste

1 (10.75 oz. can) cream of mushroom soup (save can to measure broth & milk)
1/3 can low-sodium chicken broth
1/3 can milk
¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning
pinch of ground garlic powder, ground onion powder, and ground pepper
¼ teaspoon worcestershire sauce

***Sweet Potatoes:
1 (9.3 oz. can) cut sweet potatoes, drained, reserving ½ the liquid
½ tablespoon brown sugar
¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
¼ cup miniature marshmallows

***Cranberry Sauce:
1 (14.oz. can) cranberry sauce (whole berries, or jellied)


Begin by boiling the eggs in a small saucepan, covered, for 15 minutes. When done, let cold water run over them in the saucepan placed in the sink so they cool quickly.

While eggs are cooking, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions, and celery, and poultry seasoning, and saute until onions are translucent. Add the chicken broth and bring to boil, and let simmer for 3 minutes. Stir in the bread cubes in with a fork and combine until moistened. Spray a small baking dish with butter spray, add the dressing, and sprinkle with parsley. Cover with tin foil, and set aside.

When the eggs are cooled, peel and cut them in half lengthwise and pop out the yolks into a small bowl. Smash the yolks with a fork, then add mayonnaise, relish, garlic and onion powders, lemon juice, kosher salt, and ground pepper to taste; mixing to combine. With a teaspoon, fill each of the egg white halves equally. Place on a small plate, and sprinkle with paprika and parsley, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the cranberry sauce in a decorative dish, and cover with plastic wrap, and then place in refrigerator to cool.

Place the sweet potatoes and half of the sauce into a small baking dish, and add the remaining ingredients in order listed, and set aside (uncovered).

Place the smoked turkey breast slices in a 9”x9” baking dish, and sprinkle with poultry seasoning, cover with a glass lid (or tin foil), and place in oven. Also, place the uncovered sweet potatoes, and the covered stuffing in as well. Bake all for 30 minutes (I like to baste the turkey in it’s own juices about ½ way through the baking process).

Place the potato cubes in a medium saucepan, cover the potatoes with water, and add a ½ teaspoon kosher salt and a drizzle of oil, and bring to boil. Tilt the lid so it is ajar to prevent them from boiling over, and cook for 20 minutes, until tender. Drain, and add remaining ingredients, and smash to your desired consistency.

Meanwhile, prepare the gravy by adding all the ingredients into a small saucepan, whisk to combine until smooth. Cover, and bring to a slight boil, and reduce the heat to warm, just until potatoes and the remaining dishes are done.

Serve family style, and don’t forget your deviled eggs and cranberry sauce in the refrigerator. - Enjoy!


Tip: A fruit salad, rolls, whole olives, and pumpkin pie for dessert would be nice side dishes as well ;-)
