It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Fall can be a hectic time between Halloween, and Thanksgiving, and preparing for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and the holiday season. That’s why we have compiled a list of delicious Thanksgiving recipes to make planning a little easier this year. We have you covered for a great Thanksgiving feast from appetizers to side dishes and desserts.
This creamy seasonal hummus is a great item to set out for guests while the big meal is being prepared. A quick and easy recipe; all you need is a food processor and a few simple ingredients. It is also chock-full of delicious veggies, which can sometimes feel lacking on big holidays. Check out the recipe here!
Make dinner a little easier with sides that you can prep beforehand. The best part of this balsamic-roasted brussels sprouts recipe is that you can prepare the sprouts and prosciutto the day or night before Thanksgiving. On the big day, all you need to do is throw them in the oven to roast for 20 to 30 minutes, and voilà, you have a delicious side dish! Check it out here.
This delish Thanksgiving staple is a must-have at any table! Try this traditional recipe with a tart, fall twist: Granny Smith Apples. This unexpected ingredient works with the sausage and dried cranberries to make your stuffing taste like a delectable bite of autumn! (Pro-tip: for even better stuffing, buy fresh bread and let it get a little stale on the counter a few days before you cook it.)
Roasted carrots are a great way to add color and freshness to your menu. A quick and easy side, it takes just 20 minutes of roasting in the oven to make them perfectly cooked. The sweet orange glaze in this recipe really elevates the flavor and will have guests asking for more. Try this fun twist on a classic by following this recipe!
Try a fresh take on the classic Thanksgiving apple pie by serving an apple and pear crisp! Lemon and orange zest keep the apples and pears bright, while a cinnamon-y oat topping provides just the right crunch. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or a caramel drizzle for a delish dessert that’s destined to be a hit with the whole family. Find the recipe here.
