Thanksgiving Recipe Contest Cooking Challenge!

Here at PennySaverUSA, we are right in the middle of our Thanksgiving Recipe Contest, where people are submitting their recipes for a shot at winning $250. We have received some very traditional recipes, as well as some not so traditional side-dishes that caught our attention. Our Content and Community guy, Brett Houchin, decided that he needed to try to make one of the non-traditional side dishes to add to his Thanksgiving cooking repertoire.  He’s not a big fan of following recipes, so this was a quite a challenge for him!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving Recipe? Submit it to be entered to win $250! Also, come by our Facebook page to see some recipes being posted onto our Facebook Wall!
