So it is time to get down to the nitty gritty with your Thanksgiving dinner plans and that means finalizing the menu (if you haven't already). I thought I would do a roundup of recipes that are traditional with a twist. Something that would be fun to bring to the table for the first time this year.
Loaded cornbread casserole is my absolute favorite Thanksgiving dish. Sadly, we won't be having it for Thanksgiving this year, but we will be having it for our rerun Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. It starts out like a traditional stuffing, but then you add the cheese, bacon, and French fried onions.
If you are looking to shake up the traditional mashed poatato dish (or add a second potato option) these creamy cheesy potatoes from Get Off Your Butt and Bake are a great choice for substitution.
You shouldn't make anything you don't love for Thanksgiving, but if you love Brussel Sprouts, this recipe from roasted brussel sprouts with brown butter from Baking Bites looks divine, just don't make your kids eat them on Thanksgiving if they don't want to.
I have never eaten sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving, but if you are a yam fan, here is Your Home Based Mom's recipe for pecan topped sweet potatoes. You can never go wrong topping things with pecans.
And for dessert, on top of pumpkin pie, how about some caramel pecan pie. The recipe for this can be found over on I Wash, You Dry.
