Turkey day is the one day of the year, even above Christmas, that your entire family gets together. Food is love. When you spend long hours (sometimes days) getting the turkey just right and whipping all the sides into perfect shape, you want the absolute best reaction. Food brings people together—here are our favorite Thanksgiving day dishes to try out this year.
Bring a little bit of southern flair to your dinner table. If your children or grandchildren are picky eaters, even on the biggest food day of the year, make like The Godfather and extend an offer that they can’t refuse. Everybody loves mac ‘n cheese, but who said you can’t toss in a bit of health? This dish is sure to hit home with your little ones, and the rest of the adults, too.
If you’re sick and tired of the same old stuffing recipe every year, give this one a shot. It’s always a great idea to throw some vegetables into an old dish. If you’ve been using boxed stuffing all these years, get ready to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty. Children and adults alike go nuts over this, and they don’t even know how good it is for them.
For a sweet treat that will be gone in minutes and permanently anointed onto your yearly Thanksgiving staples list, give this decadent creamy salad a try. Some even serve this up as a desert after the meal, but one thing’s for certain: it hasn’t failed the family at the table yet.
This one is a crowd-pleaser. There are two crowds at Thanksgiving: apple pie, and pumpkin pie. Sorry, apple-lovers—this one will have you absolutely hooked on pumpkin for the rest of the season. It’s a twist on traditional pumpkin pie, giving you immense pumpkin flavor, flaky crust, and a whole new appreciation for Thanksgiving.
Whether you don’t have the time to fight with a big bird this year, or you’re getting a little sick of the same old turkey, you’ll find a reason to love this recipe. Save the money and the time by going with turkey breasts instead of the whole bird, and serve up a switch-up that your family will absolutely love.
Of course, catering is also always an option. Contact us to find out more about taking a break this Thanksgiving, and leaning back to relax.
