Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and it’s time to start planning your dinner menu. I’ve rounded up several traditional Thanksgiving recipes from my favorite blogs, chefs and magazines that have a twist. I’m personally not a huge fan of your traditional Thanksgiving sides like stuffing and cranberry sauce. So I decided to go out an search for traditional recipes with a modern twist that could please everyone at the dinner table.
I’m a huge lover of the bread basket at any family gathering. This year get creative and serve a variety of options like they do at some restaurants. Have a traditional Parkerhouse roll like the ones I made last year, but also try these cran-sage rolls from Better Homes and Gardens and these pull apart garlic herb rolls from Gather for Bread.
I look forward to having mac and cheese during the holiday season but it would be fun to switch the recipe up every once in a while. But a spin on the classic recipe by making butternut squash stuffed shells and a BLT mac and cheese.
Dessert please! Desserts have to be my favorite part of Thanksgiving. I always go back for a second slice of sweet potato pie or red velvet cake. But I found two new crowd pleasing favorites to try this year, a bourbon pecan pumpkin pie and a no bake orange cranberry cheesecake.
