Thanksgiving, On the Side
The turkey gets all of the attention on Thanksgiving. I get it, it’s the star of the show. Truth be told, I could totally leave the turkey off of the menu and not be mad. I am a ham girl for Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Honeybaked ham to be specific. But what I get really excited for is the supporting cast. All the fixings and side dishes. Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, dressing! Sounds like a starch and carb overload, huh? No worries, there are brussels sprouts, green beans and veggies in there as well.
Some items are staples and family tradition that you are obligated to keep on the menu. Then there are those items that you can experiment with and try new recipes out on the family. I found some new recipes that I thought would help with your Thanksgiving meal prep. Some more classical, some adventurous, all yummy! Let’s take a look…
