For today’s Recipe Reciprocity, I thought I’d share some great Thanksgiving recipes, but not for the obvious menu items like turkey or stuffing, because everyone already has their favorites there. Instead, I’m highlighting some great sides and desserts that are a little out of the ordinary, but big on awesome.
1. I didn’t think sweet potato casserole could be improved, but then I stumbled upon Chattavore’s Sweet Potato & Pineapple Casserole and I knew I had to give it a try.
2. When I’m stuffing my face with turkey, potatoes and stuffing, it’s easy to forget about eating my vegetables. Such an oversight is far less likely with a Rachel Schultz’s Pan-Seared Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries, Pecans and Gorgonzola.
3. Green bean casserole made with Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and French’s Fried Onions is up there with my favorite Thanksgiving sides. Fully aware that it’s not exactly the classiest dish, I have big plans for Dora Daily’s Roasted Green Beans with Garlic Mushroom Sauce.
4. I love cranberries with anything, so Thanksgiving is always a treat for me. Sally’s Baking Addiction’s Cranberry Orange Muffins seem like a great way to keep the Turkey-Day feeling going strong.
5. There are few things better than the combination of pumpkin and cream cheese, but rolling them up as they are in Neighborfood’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Roll and I think we have a winner.
That’ll do it for this week’s hat tip to my fellow food bloggers. Thanks for all the great inspiration, ladies!
