Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas

Looking for some last minute Thanksgiving recipes? Look no further! Here’s an array of salads, potatoes, veggies, and desserts. The turkey and gravy are up to you, but everything else can be found here :D!
I’ll be posting quite a few recipes that I’m going to make for this year’s Thanksgiving over the next few days/weeks, but try these on your holiday table this Thursday!
Salad:
Peppery Green Salad with Manchego Cheese and Sauteed Pears
Peppery Green Salad with Manchego Cheese and Sauteed Pears: This wintery salad is unbelievably good. I made it for Christmas Eve last year and it was a huge hit 🙂
Italian Salad
Italian Salad: This salad is both tasty, and veggie-filled- so you can counteract al that gravy and pie!
Wild Rice and Lentil Salad with Oranges, Dried Fruit, and Chevre
Wild Rice and Lentil Salad with Oranges, Dried Fruit, and Chevre: This lettuce-less salad is perfect for fall!
Potatoes:
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes: I made these for Thanksgiving last year. Roasting the garlic makes all the difference
Smashed Potatoes with Pancetta and Leeks
Smashed Potatoes with Pancetta and Leeks: These mashed potatoes are certainly not the traditional type you would see on a Thanksgiving table, but they are sure to both intrigue, and please your guests!
Roasted New Potatoes with Fresh Herb Pesto
Roasted New Potatoes with Fresh Herb Pesto: Not in the mood to mash up a giant vat of potatoes? Try these simple roasted potatoes- just as good and half the work!
Veggies:
Maple Dijon Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Maple Dijon Roasted Brussel Sprouts: I never tried brussel sprouts until I was an adult because everyone always seems to label them as the quintessential “gross vegetable.” I don’t know who gave brussel sprouts the bad rap but I would like a word with them because they are now one of my favorite veggies (and seem to be an essential for Thanksgiving)!
Roasted Asparagus
Roasted Asparagus: This takes almost no time, and produces amazing results- you’ll never eat steamed asparagus again!
Condiments:
Maple Brown Sugar Cranberry Sauce
Maple Brown Sugar Cranberry Sauce: It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without cranberry sauce!
Dessert:
Pumpkin Banana Cream Pie
Pumpkin Banana Cream Pie: This pie is an exciting alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie. I made it last year and got rave reviews!
Pumpkin Shortbread with Egg Nog Ice Cream
Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Cheesecake with Passion Fruit Caramel
Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Cheesecake with Passion Fruit Caramel: This cheesecake might not be “fall-themed” or fit the mold of what is commonly served after a Thanksgiving feast, but it is one of the best desserts I have ever eaten and your guests will easily overlook the lack of sweet potato or pumpkin pie on the table.
