I’ve made a couple of Thanksgiving dinners in the past and I know it can be quite overwhelming. There are so many options. Should you go traditional? Or out of the box? What if someone can’t eat dairy? And another doesn’t like mashed potatoes (crazy person, no offense). It’s enough to make one reach for the wine just to help plan the menu. That is where I hope to help. With less than a week to go, I thought I would share some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes to help those of you that are in charge of the big day. With appetizers, sides and a couple of desserts there’s enough to please just about everyone.
The Main Event:
Have a great weekend!
A decadent ice cream cake with vanilla bean ice cream, Thin Mint cookies, Andes Mints and hot fudge.
Tender pot roast coated in Cajun seasoning and served with a tomato gravy.
Wontons filled with a delectable mixture of cream cheese, kale and spinach then fried until golden brown and crispy.
Cast iron skillet pizza topped with homemade marinara, loads of mozzarella cheese, sliced onions and succulent meatballs.
A hearty vegetarian sandwich with falafel, lettuce, tomatoes, tzatziki and chili garlic sauce.
A creamy, tangy, Greek yogurt dip with dill, garlic and cucumber.
