6 Thanksgiving Dishes to Make this Year
Crispy Brussels Sprouts Salad with Citrus-Maple Vinaigrette. Brussels sprouts probably aren’t the first thing you think of when coming up with ideas for Thanksgiving Day dishes to serve. In fact, for many Americans, you may not think of Brussels sprouts for any meal. But this misunderstood vegetable is both good for you and incredibly versatile, as demonstrated in this adventurous recipe.
3-Ingredient Sweet Potato Casserole with Maple Pecans. If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, even just having just a few family members over can put the pressure on. You may find yourself needing some quick and easy recipes to fill the table. If that sounds like your situation, check out this 3-ingredient sweet potato casserole that adds some flavor with maple glazed pecans.
Slow Cooker Rosemary Mashed Potatoes. What’s Thanksgiving without mashed potatoes? If you need a little extra space on your stovetop, try making this version of mashed potatoes in your slow cooker. Not only does it free up some room on your stove, but it also frees up some of your time! Now you can get back to enjoying the football game or catching up with loved ones instead of making sure the potatoes don’t boil over.
Pumpkin and Cauliflower Casserole. Casseroles are a staple of most holiday meals, and pumpkins are synonymous with Thanksgiving. So why not marry the two together? This pumpkin and cauliflower casserole offers a creamy Thanksgiving Day dish to everyone at your table for something a little different. And if you have some vegans in the audience, this can quickly be made vegan-friendly with a few easy substitutions.
Make-Ahead Gravy. When it comes to Thanksgiving Day dishes, anything you can make ahead of time will give you a time advantage during the big day – even something as simple as gravy. This recipe gets you ahead of the game, so you have more time for family bonding on Thanksgiving Day.
Apple Crisp Cheesecake. Who says pumpkin pie is the only dessert for Thanksgiving? Here in California, we love our apple desserts, and this apple crisp cheesecake will satisfy any sweet-tooth. Make this the night before and top with plenty of caramel before serving it at the end of your feast.
