Thanksgiving Foods

Here's the two things I made for thanksgiving.
Easy Rosemary Garlic Parmesan Biscuits
Skinny Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Easy Rosemary Garlic Parmesan Biscuits


  • 2 tbsp melted salted butter
  • 1 tbsp EVOO
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary (I used dried
  • 2 cups Heart Smart Bisquick (I used regular)
  • 3 oz shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2/3 cup skim milk

Preheat oven to 400°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Melt butter in a small pan, add oil and half the garlic; sauté on low heat about 1 minute.Remove from heat and add chopped rosemary.
In a large bowl, combine biscuit mix, parmesan cheese, and remaining garlic. Stir in milk and mix (do not over mix). Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls (about 1.5 oz each) onto prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake for 5 more minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom.

I added cheese on top of the biscuits.

Skinny Garlic Mashed Potatoes


2 lbs (4 medium) potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 large garlic cloves, peeled and halved

1/4 cup fat free sour cream
1/4 cup fat free chicken broth

1/4 cup fresh herbs of choice: parsley, thyme, tarragon

Put potatoes and garlic in a large pot with salt and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.Drain and return potatoes and garlic to pan.
Add sour cream and remaining ingredients. Using a masher, mash until smooth.Season with salt and pepper to taste.
