Thanksgiving Recipes

I thought I’d put some of our traditional Thanksgiving dishes in one post as a sort of “one stop shopping” venue for the holiday. Click on the red titles for links to the recipes.

Turkey Tips
A few tips on cooking turkey, as it is the main attraction, at least in our house.

Turnip Puff
This is one of our favourite vegatable sides. It is very light and fluffy.

Pumpkin Buns
I almost always make these buns for Thanksgiving. Sometimes shaped like pumpkins, sometimes just a typical bun shape. They are so good to make turkey sandwiches with the next day as well.

Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes of some kind are an expected choice, but these ones are flavoured with ginger and clementines.

Bacon Wrapped Turkey Sage Meatballs
Here is the perfect solution for couples or singles who want to have all the flavours of a Thanksgiving Dinner without fussing with an over-sided bird and a lot of side dishes. Serve this with mashed potatoes and gravy and you have Thanksgiving on your plate.

Squash Soup
If you want a squash soup for an appetizer, this one is great and can be made ahead and kept in the fridge or freezer.

If you want to start the celebration early, here are some breakfast options…

Pumpkin Spice Rolls
Like cinnamon rolls, but with pumpkin dough…

Pumpkin Pancakes
A simple pumpkin pancake. These can even work as supper the next night if you are too full from the day before!
