Thanksgiving Texas Roadhouse Style

From the menu straight to your Thanksgiving table, Texas Roadhouse stopped by to tell Fox 43 Morning News their recipies for some favorite holiday sides.



Equipment:  Oven safe pan, Knife, oven mitts, measuring cups


  • Bake sweet potato in oven at 450° for 35 to 45 minutes, until tender.
  • Remove at once and prick with a fork to let steam out – be careful, steam will be very hot.
  • Cut a 1 1/2-inch cross in the center of each potato.
  • Using oven mitts open the potato by pushing the ends toward the center until filling starts to push through the cut. 
  • Place ½ the marshmallows into the sweet potato
  • Pour 2 oz of your favorite store brand caramel sauce over the marshmallows; or make your own sauce using the recipe below.
  • Place the rest of the marshmallows over the caramel sauce.
  • Put potato bake on an oven safe pan and put back in the oven on Broil.
  • Let cook for just a minute or two, keeping careful watch.
  • Remove from oven when marshmallows start to brown.
  • Serve as soon as possible.

Honey Caramel Sauce

Mashed Potatoes

Equipment:  peeler, knife, cutting board, stock pot, colander, wire whisk, measuring cups, measuring spoons, rubber spatula

Ingredient                                     Amount

Idaho Potatoes                                                   2 lbs.

Butter or margarine (butter preferred)                   4 oz.

Milk                                                                  6½ oz.

Step 1

  • Thoroughly wash your potatoes in the sink.
  • Peel your potatoes leaving the desired amount of skin on the potato.  Remove all the skin if you would like.
  • Using a knife and cutting board, cut the potatoes into smaller pieces.  (This will allow the potatoes to cook more evenly and quickly)
  • Once all potatoes are cut place them in the large pot and cover with cold water.  (Bring level of water to just above the top of the potatoes.)
  • Bring water to a boil and turn down to medium heat.
  • Cook potatoes until fork tender.
