From the 'Burg to Your Kitchen

Tomorrow starts a countdown to my favorite holiday of the year – Thanksgiving. There is nothing more enjoyable to me than sitting down with my family to enjoy a fabulous meal surrounded by love and laughter. For the next few weeks, I am going to share some special Thanksgiving recipes from the Gorsuch house to yours.

Easy Cranberry Sauce

Yes, we all love that jellied cranberry sauce that is in the shape of the can it comes in, but sometimes you just want to impress your guests with something delicious, homemade and especially easy.


12 ounces frozen cranberries

1 cup sugar

1 cup orange juice


In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until cranberries start to pop. Remove from heat and place in a bowl – sauce will thicken as it cools.

Sausage Balls

You are probably thinking that sausage doesn’t belong at the Thanksgiving table and typically, I’d say you’re right. However, if you are like us, we don’t eat all day until the meal is ready. This is an easy way to entertain your guests and feed them all heading up to the big meal.


1 lb. ground pork sausage

2 cups Bisquick

4 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 Tbsp. chopped parsley

1 Tbsp. paprika

Kosher salt


Olive oil, for brushing


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment. In a large bowl, mix together pork sausage, Bisquick, cheddar, parsley, and paprika until combined and then season with salt and pepper.

Using a small cookie scoop, place tablespoon-size balls of mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Brush balls with olive oil and bake until no longer pink, usually between 20-25 minutes.
