Thanksgiving in a Cup

The Blog Tech, his wife and I went to a festival last Fall where they were serving this and I thought it would be a great meal for the after school kids.  I finally got around to making it for them yesterday. This would be a great way to use up your holiday leftovers too.

 I started by making stuffing.

 And put a layer of it in my slow cooker.

 I roasted a turkey breast and cut it into pieces and layered it over the stuffing.  I made turkey gravy, a lot of it, and drizzled some over the turkey.

Then I made mashed potatoes and put a thick layer of them over the top.  I topped them with butter and cracked black pepper
 The kids took big scoops from the bottom up and poured rich turkey gravy over the top.  At the festival, they served it in cups which was fun because you could walk around eating it with a spoon.

I also made this simple creamed corn recipe using frozen or canned corn.  You just put the corn in a slow cooker, add 1 cup of milk, 1 T. of sugar, 1 tsp. of salt, 1 stick of butter and 1 block of cream cheese. Let it cook for 3 hours and stir thoroughly.
