Hello friends, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and it’s only 10 days away! For us, it is all about great food, loved ones, and a day dedicated to gratitude. Although we’ve drifted from the original Thanksgiving a little bit over the years, it is still a day of thankfulness for the blessings in our lives. Change can be good, so I’m sharing some Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Side Dishes with you today.
“The pilgrims celebrated their successful harvest in 1621 by shooting their guns into the air, which caused Massasoit to bring together warriors and prepare for battle. Instead of fighting, the Wampanoag and pilgrims worked together to prepare a feast. I think most Americans generally believe that this harvest feast shared by the English colonists (Pilgrims) of Plymouth and the Wampanoag people.”
Although it sounds like a cliche’, we should celebrate every single day with gratitude. (smile)
Okay before I share new side dishes that will deliciously accompany your main dish (turkey, ham, tofurkey, etc.) I would like to remind you of a recipe rule I stick to, if you are trying a new recipe make it once before you serve it with your holiday meal.
The first one is amazing with any meal. I cook with mushrooms, a lot, so this one is a five-star recipe for us! Roasted Mushrooms in a Browned Butter Sauce. The addition of garlic and thyme make this non-traditional side dish the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table. Extreme yumminess, you will love these!
Creamy Pumpkin Scalloped Potatoes. The focus on pumpkin has me intrigued and I definitely think these non-traditional scalloped potatoes are worth trying.
Roasted Carrot Salad with Apples and Pistachios. Oh my goodness, if only I could eat nuts… this non-traditional addition to your menu seems like the perfect side for Thanksgiving or any meal.
Duchess Potatoes. You will love this recipe for fancy mashed potatoes. These potatoes are delicious especially made using yukon gold potatoes from our garden ( smile).
Sweet Potato Casserole. I haven’t tried this one, but I think sweet potato lovers will definitely want to give it a try. You can still make your marshmallow sweet potatoes too, but consider adding this version to your table as well.
Brussels Sprouts Latkes. If your small ones scream and run at the first mention of brussels sprouts. I think they might stick around for this latke version of a non-traditional side dish.
Which one of these sides will you try?
You can find more delicious side dish recipes in my recipe index ( smile). I hope to see you all back here on Thursday for the TFT blog hop link party for blog writers and blog readers.a Rafflecopter giveaway
Sweet potato casserole might be good. Sorry, can do that last one though.
