Unique Thanksgiving to Try This Year!
Thanksgiving celebrations are often steeped in tradition. While there are certain dishes that we each believe we simply must find on our Thanksgiving tables, it doesn't mean we can't still mix things up a bit! Treat your (and your guests') taste buds to these unique main and side dish options that will add some distinctive flair to your festivities this November 24th:
Delivering the seasonal flavors of winter squash and cider, this soup is unexpected in a few ways. First, it gives us an opportunity to take the squash off our crowded table with the rest of our sides screaming for a little palatal attention and allows us to serve it as its own first course. Second, unlike most squash soups that take forever, this one whips up in just 30 minutes.
This dish quickly proves that the only thing better than bacon is bacon with bourbon and pecans. Sweet, savory, salty and a touch of heat all come together in this heavenly morsel. It touts a creamy yet crunchy texture that will quickly earn its place on your tablescape for years to come.
Not a typo: stuffing muffins is an actual thing. Whether it's referred to as stuffing or dressing in your home, everyone will agree on one thing: these pre-portioned bites are deliciously crispy on the outside and comfortingly soft on the inside.
Matchless Main Courses
Bacon Wrapped Turkey Breast
Feeding a smaller crew means you can forego cooking a gargantuan turkey; opt instead for more manageable turkey breasts. We've already agreed that everything is better with bacon, and these birds are no exception. Pair this recipe with the above sweet potato casserole for a culinary match made in food heaven.
Sweet Tea and Citrus-Brined Turkey
If you do opt for a full bird, it's critical to avoid the dreaded "Dry Turkey Syndrome" at all costs. Not to worry; this sweet tea and citrus-brined turkey recipe tenderizes the poultry for a final meal that your guests will love.
