So you’re hosting a Thanksgiving meal this year? Maybe you’re calling it Friendsgiving or some other creative name, but no matter what, you will need to provide some, if not all, of the food for the gathering. Whether you are cooking for four people or fifteen, you want to make a meal they will remember – and maybe even post about on Instagram. Here are some unique menu options to get your creative juices flowing to make a meal to remember this year.
Roasted cauliflower: This pairs great with the gravy, so it’s an easy (and healthy) addition to your Thanksgiving table.
Baked apples with sausage stuffing: Sweet, savory, and a great aesthetic to add to the meal.
Bacon and cheese Brussel sprout casserole: Spice up your veggie side dish by finding a Brussel sprout casserole with bacon, cheese, cream or any other ingredient you think might make it more unique.
Apple pie salsa and cinnamon chips: Serve up a fun appetizer or dessert of some apple pie salsa and sweet chips.
Stuffed squash: Stuff your acorn squash with feta, quinoa, greens, white beans, and more for a delicious, vegetarian side or main dish.
Chipotle shells and cheese potato skins: Combine some holiday favorites for a fun appetizer or side dish.
Honey roasted sweet potatoes: Skip the sweet potato casserole and try out this sweet and savory, healthy alternative with a honey dip.
Bacon wrapped turkey: Upgrade your main course this year. Almost everyone loves bacon, but adding it to your main Thanksgiving dish might just set this holiday apart from all the others.
Fried mashed potato balls: Think fried mac and cheese balls, but with the Thanksgiving staple of mashed potatoes.
Green bean casserole with onion rings: Don’t use those flash fried onions…use the real thing.
Pumpkin pie popsicle: If you’re celebrating in a warmer climate, this dessert might be the option for you!
