Coconut Green Bean Casserole by @jakecohen

GBC can get a bad rap. The beans are usually soggy and the canned cream of mushroom has got to go! @jakecohen set out to prove to us all that in fact, green bean casseroles are DELICIOUS. A quick blanch of the green beans ensures a really quick cooking time and crisp green beans! Oh did we mention this creamy casserole is also vegan?! *mike drop*

Creamy Mashed Potatoes with Homestyle Gravy by @mollyjean4

We don't like to brag, but these might just be the best 'taters around! If you want to make these a few hours before the big meal, you can keep them warm in a crock pot for a few hours!

MAIN EVENT
Dry Brined Spatchcock Turkey by @mollyjean4

Trust us, dry brine is the way to go!  @mollyjean4  also likes to get rid of the backbone of the bird so it can cook evenly. Plus, this technique also cuts down dramatically on cooking time!
