- The first of the five traditional Thanksgiving dinner recipes is green bean casserole. In a baking dish, place canned or frozen green beans, pour a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup over the green beans and top with canned french fried onions. Bake till hot.
- Cranberry sauce. Most people just buy the jellied and slide it right out of the can and slice it up onto a pretty serving dish. You can also get whole cranberry sauce from a can.
- Candied yams or sweet potatoes. To make this one of five traditional Thanksgiving dinner recipes, take the cooked vegetables and add some butter and brown sugar to make a sweet sauce and throw in some miniature marshmallows after heating the potatoes. You can buy these ready in a can or fresh and cook them tender yourself.
- Dressing or stuffing comes next. You can buy a box or bag of stuffing mix and follow directions to make it, or you can use your own cubed day old bread. You add butter, salt and pepper, and some celery for basic dressing and good flavor. You can fancy it up by using chicken broth instead of water and add some onions, seeds, or nuts.
- Make an easy pumpkin pie by combining a can of pumpkin with pumpkin pie seasoning and pouring it into an unbaked pie crust and baking in the oven. The pie seasonings can be bought together or separately and all you need to do is follow directions on the can of pumpkin and on the pie crust bag.
