In search of recipes so good, you'll eat the meal off the floor

One randomly-selected participant who sends a recipe will win this floorboard from Duke men's basketball's 201 national championship game.

Durham, NC - Think you make a tasty turkey? Do friends and family fight for servings of your mashed potatoes?

Maybe it's time to put your best Thanksgiving recipe to the test to see just how tantalizing it can be. This Thanksgiving, Working@Duke will compile its second Thanksgiving recipe round-up, a compilation of holiday recipes from faculty and staff. Let us know how you prepare your turkey (or Tofurkey), cranberry sauce, greens or any other Thanksgiving foods.

We're looking for recipes so appetizing, we'll want to eat the meal off the floor - and for good reason.

This year, we're giving away a prize to one randomly-selected participant: a piece of floor from the Duke men's basketball team's 2010 championship season. The 1-by-1-foot piece of floor came from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind., the host-city of the 2010 NCAA men's basketball Final Four. It's 119th out of 500 total pieces of floor salvaged from Duke's 61-59 win over Butler University.

So use your cookbooks or memories and send us your recipe by sending email to Working@Duke (and include a photo of your creation if you have one) by 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12. We'll compile submitted recipes and release a Working@Duke Thanksgiving recipes in PDF format on the Working@Duke section of Duke Today Nov. 14. We'll also announce the randomly selected winner of the championship floor piece that same day.
