For six seasons, the "Jersey Shore" cast became known for their love of GTL, blowouts, trips to Karma...and cooking.
Whether they were living it up in Seaside Heights, soaking up the sun in Miami or touring the streets of Florence, you could always find Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation, Pauly D, Vinny, Deena, Ronnie and Sammi Sweetheart gathered in the kitchen, cracking jokes about their (hilarious) drunken nights out while whipping up homemade meals for their weekly family-style feast.
Yeahhh, don't worry, buddy -- we didn't forget about Sunday Dinner! The Situation's mouthwatering take on chicken parmigiana would have any little meatball running to the table faster than one could say:
And with Thanksgiving right around the corner, there's no better time to get some inspiration from the "Jersey Shore" recipe book. Besides, everyone deserves a huge Solo cup filled with "Ron Ron Juice" while roasting a gigantic turkey.
Hungry yet? Here are a few dishes that are perfect to include on any Thanksgiving menu:
When it comes to fine cuisine, we should all abide by Snooki's motto: "Pickles is my thing."
2. Sausage and Potatoes
It's one of the Sitch's fave eats, so it must be good.
Share the love with your seafood-loving guests. Just make sure someone does the dishes afterward to avoid a Sammi-like freakout.
4. Chicken Parmigiana
Let's be real -- an evening at the Shore wasn't complete without some hearty chicken parm.
6. Ron Ron Juice
Seriously, every holiday meal should come with a mandatory pitcher of Ronnie's potent concoction.
7. Deli Meat
In the event your bird burns in the oven, run to the nearest grocery store and pick up some "ham and water" -- aka JWOWW's favorite post-club snack.
Be sure to top off your appetite on a sweet note. After all, MVP = Milkshakes, Vinny and Pauly.
The bubblier, the better.
10. Turkey! (Obviously.)
You get the idea...
