1. Far from the classic oven-roasted turkey
Turkey is a dish you’ll find served in every home at Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving festivities are incomplete without this delicacy. Usually the turkey is served roasted in the oven. While still classic, the excitement can only double with a touch of Turkey. The stuffed turkey roulade is an ideal solution and suitable for large gatherings. The stuffed turkey roulade recipe is not only impressive but also much tastier than roast turkey. While everyone likes to stick with the roast turkey tradition, it’s always good to get creative and give your turkey a new, much nicer boost. The jalapenos hidden in the stuffing will give you just about the right heat. You can glaze your turkey with sweet and tangy cranberry barbecue sauce.
2. Cranberry Colonial Dessert
A pretty interesting cranberry sweetener can work wonders. In the 18th century, cranberries were most often preserved or simmered to sweeten them and use them in pies. But now we can make a comforting dessert from these cranberries. Along with the traditional turkey, the cranberry dessert will complete your Thanksgiving feast. You can add apples and the oatmeal topping to your cranberries to add sweetness and create a pleasantly tangy light dessert.
Thanksgiving dinner is incomplete without greens. There are many Mediterranean-inspired salads that one can try. A salad recipe loaded with ingredients, such as Brussels sprouts, squash, apples, and pears, can add different flavors to your salad. It will also add a lot of color to your recipe. We have plenty of options like nuts, cheese or crispy bacon to spice up the salad game. You can even try a crisp and cheesy salad and finish it off with a delicious buttermilk dressing. The sprout salad filled with sweet cranberries and crunchy toasted almonds is also an amazing idea you must try.
4. Side dish with mashed potatoes
It’s the ultimate holiday side dish that we all want to try this holiday season. It’s creamy, fluffy and cheesy, everything a party table dish should have. Infused with milk and butter and fresh thyme and bay leaves, this dish is a perfect blend of flavors. Just mash potatoes and crushed garlic cloves. Don’t forget to add herb infused milk and cream cheese. And the magic ingredient… Eggs. To make the dish crispy, add panko breadcrumbs and mix it with parmesan cheese and brown butter before baking.
5. All-time favorite condiment — THE SAUCE!
Gravy is a thickened sauce made with gravy, broth, and seasonings. It’s a staple that you can drizzle over almost any dish at your holiday dinner – be it meats, veggies, and all the classic sides. You can start by cooking the butter and flour in a skillet until golden and bubbly, the base of your sauce’s texture. Save the juices from your turkey while cooking. These drops are full of flavor. Enhance the flavor of your sauce by adding garlic and fresh herbs.
