Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays of the year because it combines family, fun, and a lot of delicious food. Although the Joybird team comes from a variety of backgrounds, our tastes overlap when it comes to Turkey Day. Our families made a lot of similar Thanksgiving recipes for us growing up, and we’ve continued on those traditions for our families.
As we eagerly await Thanksgiving Day, we wanted to share and link to some amazing Thanksgiving recipes for you to don your dining room tables with this year. Be sure to read through all of them and grab a snack – they’ll definitely make you hungry!
Thanksgiving and turkey go hand-in-hand. Turkey has been served at Thanksgiving dinner for hundreds of years, so we won’t mess with tradition. Here’s an easy recipe that shows you how to make a delicious bird for the big day without feeling stressed.
Apple Chorizo Cornbread Stuffing
Stuffing is just as important to Thanksgiving as the turkey is. If you want to create a unique twist on a classic recipe, we recommend making Apple Chorizo Cornbread Stuffing. It’s sweet, savory, brings a little heat, and oh so delicious.
Stuffed Butternut Squash with Quinoa Salad
One of our favorite produce items during this time of year is butternut squash, and this Stuffed Butternut Squash recipe is not only delicious, but it can also be served as an alternative main course dish for your vegan and vegetarian friends..
Vegan Green Bean Casserole
Another classic Thanksgiving recipe is green bean casserole. The combination of the fresh green beans, crunchy onions, and creamy mushroom sauce is something that we can’t get enough of. But, for a slightly healthier option, we’ve found an even more delicious Vegan Green Bean Casserole recipe. You’ll love this modern twist on an old classic.
No-Bake Caramel Apple Cheesecake Trifle
Turning to dessert, we wanted to highlight a dish you can make ahead of time. These No-Bake Caramel Apple Cheesecake Trifles fit that bill perfectly. They’re easy to make, absolutely delicious, and they allow you free up the oven for other courses. It’s a win-win-win!
Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler
If you want to try something other than a traditional pumpkin pie, why not try this Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler? It takes all the best elements of a traditional cobbler and combines it with the pure decadence of a lava cake. Do yourself a favor and add this dessert to your menu.
