I know you’re overloaded with Thanksgiving recipes. You’ve likely seen 15 varieties of stuffing, 32 ways to prep a turkey, 58 pumpkin pies. But in case you’re still looking for fresh ideas, here are just a few things that would grace my table (were I cooking this year).
For an appetizer: apple blue cheese puffs. Quick, easy and full of fall flavors. They’re sure to keep football fans happy while the turkey is frying.
With dinner: cream cheese mashed potatoes. I love them more than butter.
For dessert: pumpkin gooey butter cakes in lieu of pumpkin pie. They’re creamier, richer, and one batch makes enough to have some sweet leftovers the next day.
And speaking of leftovers, make a pot of club chowder a few days after turkey day to use up all that excess bird. Make a new meal out of an old one!
I hope you all have a lovely, safe and happy Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for my family, the roof over my head, and for all of the gracious support you’ve showed the community this holiday season. If you weren’t able to make it to Will Bake for Food, please consider adding a few non-perishable items to your Thanksgiving shopping list and dropping them off at your local food bank.
