I know, I know…the countdown is on – we are only days away from Thanksgiving, (and a month from Christmas) but here’s the deal, friends…. I’m hosting this year and that means I have been on the HUNT for new, to-die-for dishes to add to the rotation.
I always make my nana’s stuffing. And my mom’s green bean casserole. And TURKEY. My mouth is watering just thinking about it, but I really want this year to be special. I want my family to be amazed (and stuffed). This means coming up with dishes everyone will enjoy and beg me to bring to the next family gathering.
So, I’ve collected a few I’m CERTAIN you will want to add. From the most indulgent potato dishes to cranberry sauce to vegetables your whole family will eat… I know you won’t be disappointed.
Take a look. And let me know what you plan to make.
Skip the traditional mashes potatoes and go with:
Potato Au Gratin.Honestly Yum shares a recipe that has been a family staple for as long as anyone can remember. With a combination of heavy cream, cheese and just the right spices, this dish will be one of the first ones to empty.
So, I have two options for you to choose from. First: Loaded, Scalloped Sweet Potato Casserole from Marla Meredith. Think perfectly cooked bacon. And Cream. And Cheese. And yes, Sweet Potatoes. Cue the drooling.
Brown Sugar Brussels Sprouts from Sweet Pea Lifestyle are a spin on a dish many have always been hesitant to try. Combining roasted brussels sprouts with a sweet and tangy balsamic and brown sugar glaze perfectly balances the flavors.
