Caption It: A Darn Good Casserole
For the first time ever, not one but two Food Network pals dropped by The Kitchen this morning for an epic Friendsgiving celebration. Nancy Fuller, Valerie Bertinelli and all five co-hosts took turns showcasing their best-bet recipes for all of the Thanksgiving feast, from the all-important turkey to a simple drink and a dressed-up dessert. Nancy was all about one dish — a "one-dish," to be exact. With the help of Jeff Mauro, she prepped her super-cheesy Root Vegetable One-Dish, a big-batch casserole filled with a whopping five seasonal picks — celery root, parsnips, sweet and Yukon gold potatoes, and rutabaga — baked at once in a single pan.
Take a peek at the photo above. After getting his hands on Nancy's richly decadent side dish, laced with garlic-scented cream and both cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, Jeff showed off a hearty smile that spoke for itself; this is one unforgettable holiday dish. "This is going to be my favorite dish on our Thanksgiving table," he said, plain and simple.
Now it's up to you, fans. We're challenging you to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this grinning moment in the comments below. Want to try Nancy's one-dish recipe for yourself? You can find it here.
