There’s no Thanksgiving without food, and naturally, every year you’re sitting wondering what to cook this time around. The last thing you would want is to go for random recipes that would take you hours to prepare and taste just so-so. So whether you’re looking to recreate last year’s dishes, try something new, or do a mix match, we’re here to help.
Here are some delightful Thanksgiving dishes that are sure to tantalize your loved one’s taste buds and make everyone more thankful. Let’s begin:
It’s not Thanksgiving if you aren’t serving turkey. You can prepare it using fruit, vegetables and of course, the right stuffing. You can also season it with herbs, as this would give it a delightful smell. After you’re done with the stuffing and the seasoning, it’s time to roast it. You can do it in on an open fire or in the oven. Roasted turkeys are very juicy, but perfecting that consistency takes a certain degree of practice and skill. If you don’t do it properly, you’ll get a dry turkey which is not something you’d want to serve your guests.
The sweet and tangy flavor of the cranberry sauce makes it the perfect side dish for turkey. Although you can buy ready-made sauce from any store, it’s easy to make at home. All you have to do is boil some cranberries, add a bit of sugar, lemon zest and let it simmer. It’ll be ready in no time and you can enjoy it with turkey.
Yams are another traditional gift for Thanksgiving. Their sweet, yellow and creamy texture make them the ideal side dish for many dishes. You can make a casserole with them or make them into mashed potatoes. You could also bake them into candied yams—a sweet dish that’ll remind you of candy.
Pumpkin pie has a flaky crust and it’s filled with pumpkin and delicious warm spice. The crust is sure to warm your heart and stomach. Moreover, it’ll also give you an immunity boost. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you could make pecan pie. It’s made using nuts, spices and a bit of maple syrup. Although it’s not as popular as pumpkin pie, it’s still a favorite among many.
