The Connoisseur is very particular when it comes to his Thanksgiving meal preparations. One of his golden rules is to always test out a new dish before serving it guests. Lucky for his family (and the rest of the show!) that also means getting to taste these scrumptious dishes during the R&D period.

The newest recipe was so good, that he wanted to share it with all of you. It’s inspired by a family style restaurant located in St. Louis called The Original Sweetie Pie’s. Scroll all the way down to see a video of our friend, Guy Fieri, making the recipe with the chef, Ms. Robbie, then try it for your friends and family.
