Whether you’re hosting your whole brood for Thanksgiving or plan to show up somewhere with a side dish in hand, it helps to have a new recipe or two to spice up the same old, same old. If you’re looking to break out of the turkey-mashed potatoes-stuffing rut, keep reading. We’ve rounded up five great recipes that can turn any Turkey Day feast from drab to fab, and might just get your guests talking about them all the way to next Thanksgiving.
There’s no reason sweet potatoes have to be served in a heavy casserole topped with marshmallows. Change things up! Instead, offer up a tray of these bite-sized, healthy snacks, packed with the flavors of fall — sweet potato, cinnamon, and cranberry — as an appetizer or side dish and watch your guests’ eyes light up. See here.
Forget everything you believed about Brussels sprouts — it’s all in the preparation. This recipe not only turns out a deliciously crisp alternative to that soggy green bean casserole, with plenty of savory, caramelized flavor, but it’s also incredibly easy to make. Just cut, toss, and roast! See them here.
Traditional Thanksgiving meals aren’t often friendly for our gluten-intolerant family members. Fortunately, here’s a way to have your stuffing and eat it too! See here.
Who doesn’t love mac and cheese? Nobody, that’s who. Offer any host this hearty side dish brimming with rich flavor from three kinds of cheese, and you’re sure to make the guests’ list of what they’re most thankful for. See it here.
Give your feast a distinctive twist with a house signature cocktail. The Ing Sling is a riff on a gin martini with a refreshing addition of fresh lemon juice and elderflower that nicely complements those heavy comfort foods.
