We all have a favourite dish that we anticipate when Thanksgiving rolls around. For some, the turkey is the showstopper. Others salivate at the thought of a pumpkin caramel cheesecake. Traditional recipes and new creations are served at the table every year. Gather round and give thanks for these 5 top recipes:
1. Gobble! Gobble! Of course the turkey is going to be in the #1 spot. Whether yours is basted to a juicy, golden brown, deep-fried to a crispy bronze or even glazed with maple syrup, the humble turkey is still the most popular Thanksgiving food.
2. A savoury butternut squash soup is warm and comforting – perfect for a dinner that celebrates family and friends. You could also choose a delicious gratinée onion soup. Light enough to leave room for other favourites, but flavorful and tasty – it will make your taste buds dance.
3. Sausage and rice stuffing pairs perfectly with turkey. Finely chopped onions and celery, spicy sausage and white rice are cooked with a cream of celery soup to turn into a moist side dish that is a Thanksgiving favourite.
4. Maple-glazed carrots add beautiful colour and taste to your table. Simple to make with olive oil, salt, pepper and maple glaze, these are sure to be on someone’s ‘can’t-wait-for-this-dish’ list. If carrots are not your favourite vegetable, try Brussel sprouts cooked with apples and bacon – salty, sweet, crunchy and delightful.
5. Fast-forward to dessert. The savoury and sweet butter tart is the perfect size for a meal-ender. A tender, buttery crust filled with brown sugar and pecans will finish off any meal.
