I know I’ve bragged about him before, but it bears repeating: my husband is a fantastic cook, and Thanksgiving is his specialty. For the past two years, he’s whipped up some of the best Thanksgiving dishes I’ve ever tasted.
Last year, we spent Thanksgiving Day at a friend’s house for a potluck meal, but he still insisted on cooking our own Thanksgiving meal from scratch on Friday. He’s kind of obsessed.
This year we’re excited to finally cook a meal for family. Tony’s parents and sister will be visiting us for the long weekend. Instead of posting our weekly meal plan, I’ve decided to share our Thanksgiving menu and the original recipes that inspired our dishes. Tony has made many adaptations to these recipes to make them his own, but I highly recommend trying any of these dishes if you’re looking for a new twist on your Thanksgiving favorites (especially the green bean casserole).
I’ll be doing the baking this year, and I’m making apple pie for the first time. Wish me luck!
- Roast turkey (if you’ve never brined a turkey, I insist you try this).
- Creamy mashed potatoes
- Harvest stuffing
- Green bean casserole from scratch
- Fresh cranberry compote
- Turkey pan gravy
- Homemade bread
- Pumpkin pie
- Apple pie
