Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without certain flavors, or ingredients. However, sometimes you want to change things up with different options that are not the typical Thanksgiving menu. Of course nothing is wrong with tradition either.
I wanted to share a few options that you may want to consider in 3 types of Thanksgiving dinners, and of course you can do a mix of all 3 if you like. I have done all of the leg work in researching options for the nontraditional options, and lets face it you have all of the traditional recipes and menus, after all you ate it last year.
Traditional Thanksgiving Day
Roasted Turkey (simple seasoning of salt, pepper, sage, and poultry seasoning)
Dressing (Yes dressing, stuffing the bird will not yield enough)
Slow cooked collard greens
Macaroni and Cheese
Cranberry sauce (canned, after all, it is tradition)
Roasted sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, acorn squash, and butternut squash (400 deg F 1 inch cubes, spread out no a cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt pepper fresh rosemary and drizzle with olive oil)
Green beans (the fancy name is haricot vert, sauté in a pan with garlic, shallots, salt and pepper and a little water to help steam)
