In the Kitchen: Thanksgiving Classic with a Twist Version

 

Thanksgiving Classic with a Twist Version

It’s the food holiday to end all food holidays so obviously it’s my favorite day of the year (besides my birthday). I love testing new recipes but Thanksgiving is definitely a time for all the classics like stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey, etc. Here are a few of my favorite thanksgiving recipes that give those classics just the slightest update.

Cranberry Relish: This recipe is both ridiculously easy and ridiculously tasty. Of course, it comes from my food crush, Anthony Bourdain.

Italian Sausage + Bread Stuffing: I love this slight tweak on classic stuffing recipes. Up the herb anti by adding fresh sage, thyme, and rosemary.

Duchess Baked Potatoes: These will change your life. Seriously. People go crazy over them (it’s probably all the heavy cream and eggs) and you can make them ahead and reheat. Perfect for the Thanksgiving cooking marathon.

Arugula Persimmon Salad with Avocado: This sounds delicious and a great contrast to all the heavy Turkey day classics. I may just throw in some pomegranate seeds too for good measure.

Dry Brined Roast Turkey: Dry brining sounds about 10,000 times easier than a traditional brine so you better believe I’m going to test this one out.

Apple Pandowdy: Who doesn’t love a simple dessert. Like an apple but easier.
