Roundup of Thanksgiving Recipes: 12 Things You Might Want to Make This Year
Thanksgiving recipes are everywhere! It’s almost time for the most fabulous feast of the year. Here are some recipes which have caught my eye.
Ohhhh Thanksgiving, how I love thee. It’s so much easier than you think, especially when you have excellent recipes to choose from. Here’s some I’m a little giddy about. If you have a favorite, please leave a link in the comments, K?
The Perfect Flaky Pie Crust
Fabi at Not Just Baked shares her most awesome tips on how to make an outstanding pie crust. That fabulous gal just graduated from culinary school, so she knows her shizzle. (Make sure you also check out her Maple Masked Yams.)
Cranberry Molasses Glazed Turkey
Let’s face it, nailing the turkey is critically important. The Thanksgiving table (in my omnivore opinion) isn’t complete without it. This one looks might tasty!
Pumpkin Pie With Ginger Snaps
This one caught my eye, as I just tried some gluten-free ginger snaps the other day that rocked my world. She does something a little unexpected (and genius?) with them.
Citrus, Quinoa and Kale Salad with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette
I like to keep most of the main dishes pretty much the same each year, but there is a little room for deviation, and that’s the salad. Marisa, at Margaritas in the Rain, sparked my interest with this funky salad.
Rosemary Garlic Potatoes
Now personally, I LOVE mashed potatoes. Sadly, the boys in my house do not, so I haven’t made them lately. I know, blasphemy (I might make them anyway this year. Just cuz.) This little beauty of a potato dish isn’t mashed, and it would be delicious as a cold leftover the next day. Win!
Green Bean Casserole with French Fried Onions
This is one of my childhood memories. It’s good, you know it is… but it doesn’t have to have a bunch of icky ingredients. This recipe changes the game, friends. A real food recipe that looks mighty delicious.
Apple Sausage Stuffing Recipe
I also love stuffing… and you guessed it, the boys do not (seriously, what’s WITH these people?) I had dreams of “stuffing muffins” because they seemed so easy, until I saw this little beauty. Best quote from Kim’s post: “Whether you call it stuffing or dressing, it’s all the same, right? I suppose stuffing would be stuffed inside the bird. This is stuffed into your slow cooker.” *giggle*
There’s no doubt about it: grains and seeds are a fad… some for like 10,000 years. *ahem* Things like quinoa are also exceedingly easy to cook, and dress up however you like. Kinda like this Harvest Quinoa.
Sweet Potato Pie with Marshmallow Meringue
I love sweet potatoes. I’ve eaten one for lunch most days in the past two weeks. So.good. I love the sweet potato casserole… yes the one with the marshmallows. Yeah, yeah, I know, not exactly unprocessed. Then I saw this lovely recipe, and my heart was so happy!
Gluten-Free Pie Crust
Oh kids, this is my challenge this year (maybe you can relate?) I linked to another roundup about pastry the other day, and this recipe makes me so happy. It’s on my list of things to try.
Yukon Gold Smashed Potatoes
Remember how I said I might make them anyway? Yeah, these could be it. Missy keeps it simple as always. Love that.
