My Top 7 Thanksgiving Recipes from Simply Sissom that I have brought or am bringing to my friends' and families' tables.
So... are you planning like crazy?
Your Thanksgiving dishes, I mean? Recipes, ingredients, oven-timing Excel spreadsheet (<--- just me?).
We hosted Friendsgiving at our house AND we had Thanksgiving with my family Sunday night.. all as a warm up for our official turkey dinner in Tennessee with Joe's family on Thursday. Nope, we don't mess around with holidays that are centered around food in our family.
I wanted to write up a quick post before we head out for our long holiday weekend and share some of my favorite Thanksgiving appropriate recipes from Simply Sissom - you know, the ones I am bringing or have brought to my families' and friends' tables Warning.. it's a little potato heavy. I think it's possible I may be in a Thanksgiving Day Side Dish Rutt (sorry, not sorry).
Here are My Top 7 Thanksgiving Recipes :
Garlic Smashed Potatoes: A super simple
alternative addition to mashed potatoes. If there was ever a holiday where multiple potato sections were necessary.. it's Thanksgiving. Tender golden potatoes are smashed, topped with olive oil, garlic and thyme and then roasted until crispy. A delicious gluten-free and vegan appetizer or side dish!
1-Bowl Corn MuffinsEverything is better when it's shaped like a muffin! Easy, One-Bowl Corn Muffins sweetened naturally with honey. Tender, wholesome, and delicious.
Simple Mashed Potatoes: Simple Mashed Potatoes are easy to make, requiring only 5 basic ingredients. Gold potatoes, milk, butter, salt and pepper come together making this classic all-time favorite easier than ever to whip together.
Pecan Pie Slabs: Simple Pecan Pie Slabs are ridiculously simple to make. Whole-Food Friendly, gluten-free, and loaded with crunchy nuts. A fun twist on a classic Southern staple. No crust making required!
Grains and Greens Quinoa Salad: This warm Grains and Greens Salad is simple to throw together and make ahead friendly. With tons of fresh greens, nutty quinoa, pomegranate seeds and a simple lemon vinaigrette... it's the perfect healthy addition to your Thanksgiving table.
Whole-Food Apple Sausage Stuffing: This one comes highly recommended from Joe. Simple Whole-Food Apple Sausage Stuffing with 2 types of bread, tart granny smith apples, spicy sausage and plenty of fresh herbs!
Leftover Mashed Potato Puffs: Ok, ok... this one isn't exactly or your Thanksgiving table, but you guys... make these crispy, creamy, cheesy leftover mashed potato puffs for a quick grab n’ go breakfast option post feast.
I hope that you have a fabulous Thanksgiving full of good fun, happy family time, and All. The. Food.
