The Easiest Side Dishes for Labor Day Weekend

  The Easiest Side Dishes for Labor Day Weekend <p>A great cookout side dish should be both a crowd-pleaser and unfussy to prep.</p>We all know the beginning of September can get a little hectic (kids head back to school/activities, young adults start college, you’re shuffling them through all of it), but that’s all the more reason to fire up the grill for Labor Day— as a tasty ode to summer, and the wonderful produce and memories it has provided.

We all have that aunt—the one who’s been bringing her Miracle-Whip-bound pimiento-pea salad to Thanksgiving dinner since time immemorial. To cut her a little slack, here are some examples of vintage Thanksgiving -themed recipes that will make her salad look like filet mignon.

The list of regrettable Thanksgiving side dishes is at Mental Floss. We bring you the neatest, weirdest, and most wonderful stuff from all over the Web every day. Come back often, mmkay? Company Info.

We all have that aunt—the one who’s been bringing her Miracle-Whip-bound pimiento-pea salad to Thanksgiving dinner since time immemorial. But although you may swear she got her recipe straight from the devil, it turns out that cheese-and-lime-Jell-O salads and their ilk were all the rage in her day—it’s not (totally) her fault! To cut her a little slack, here are some examples of vintage Thanksgiving-themed recipes that will make her salad look like filet mignon.

1. CRANBERRY CANDLE SALAD

Nothing complements the tart, refreshing flavor of cranberry sauce like some gelatin and salty, eggy mayonnaise. If that weren’t weird enough, this recipe also tells you to shove a real candle in there and then light it. Ostensibly, you’re supposed to eat around the melted wax, but we can’t be sure—maybe it’s considered a condiment.

This Is the Absolute Worst Day to Shop for Your Thanksgiving Groceries

  This Is the Absolute Worst Day to Shop for Your Thanksgiving Groceries You know what a madhouse the grocery store can be, especially if you pop in right before an upcoming storm or a big football game—or too close to a holiday. Since there’s no bigger eating holiday than Thanksgiving, you’ll want to be smart about when you shop for your turkey and trimmings. (Does your family keep any of these Thanksgiving traditions each year?) Let’s start with when NOT to shop. You might imagine that the worst day to hit the supermarket is the day before Thanksgiving. And you’re not entirely wrong.

2. CANDIED SWEET POTATOES WITH ANGOSTURA BITTERS

This recipe for candied sweet potatoes, which involves baking them in a mixture of butter, sugar, and angostura bitters, is probably either really good or really bad. It sort of makes sense, adding bitters to cut down on the sugar factor. Alternatively, you could just not make a candied version of something that already has the word sweet in its name.

3. TURKEY AND STUFFING ON JELL-O

There’s not much to this one, is there? It’s a pile of turkey and stuffing dumped on top of a cranberry orange Jell-O ring—sounds delicious!

4. CREAMED ONIONS

This once-popular Thanksgiving mainstay has been neglected over the last century, for perhaps obvious reasons. In some households, the idea was to pour creamed onions over the turkey, like gravy, to add a little moisture. Or possibly because eating a chunky mouthful of pearl onions and cream sauce by itself is gross.

White Castle Suggests That a Bag of 30 Turkey Sliders Would Make a Great Thanksgiving Dinner

  White Castle Suggests That a Bag of 30 Turkey Sliders Would Make a Great Thanksgiving Dinner <p>In a somewhat odd Thanksgiving promotion, White Castle is giving away free “Crave Caddies” that can keep 30 sliders warm at once.</p>This Thanksgiving, White Castle, like many restaurant chains, is bringing back an annual seasonal offering to celebrate: its turkey sliders and sweet potato fries. The sliders come in two varieties that fit the holiday well enough – a Bistro Turkey Slider made with white Butterball turkey and topped with a “tangy bistro sauce,” or a new Cheddar and Apple Butter Turkey Slider, which is pretty self-explanatory. Meanwhile, sweet potato fries repurpose a common Thanksgiving side into fry form.

5. WINTER CORN

This mixture of corn, sour cream, and bacon is sometimes found on Midwestern Thanksgiving tables. It’s mostly off-putting because its main ingredient is creamed corn. That said, creamed corn really needs all the help it can get, so adding bacon can only improve it.

6. FROZEN JELLIED TURKEY-VEGETABLE SALAD

There’s only one way to improve a dish as alluring as Jellied Turkey-Vegetable Salad, and that’s to stick it in the freezer. From the sound of the recipe—which combines cream of celery soup, salad dressing, diced turkey, vegetables, and gelatin—this is basically the inside of a turkey pot pie if it was served frozen. And also if it was square.

7. JELL-O FRUIT CORNUCOPIA

Sure, cornucopias were for holding food in olden times, but don’t you wish you could eat one? Well, guess what—your years of longing are finally over, because someone has made a Jell-O version of one with fruit trapped in it. You don’t even have to take the fruit out of the cornucopia this time—you can just pop the whole thing in your mouth. Dreams do come true.

8. SWEET AND SOUR TANG POPCORN (A.K.A. ASTRONAUT POPCORN)

Reportedly, this was a popular Thanksgiving dessert in the ’70s. The idea seems to be an offshoot of caramel corn, but … with Tang powder.

9. HOT DR. PEPPER

You gotta give the good folks at Dr. Pepper a few points for at least trying here. They noticed that soda was not often considered a cozy, comforting holiday drink, and they stepped up to the bat undaunted. Bold move.
