Open Thread: Thanksgiving Eats
Good god. Thanksgiving is a week away and I’ve yet to come up with some fresh ideas. Dad Gansie will take care of the bird, but I need to thrill our guests with sides.
Here are some recipes I’ve spied and might try. Please add in your favorites or new recipes you’re giving a spin around the stove this year.
Thanksgiving 2010 – Tryouts
Would make for a fab presentation.
Carrot, Olive and Feta Salad
[Make It Naked]
Cauliflower and Parmesan Cake
I needed one egg dish in there.
Fried Brussel Sprouts
At least one dish wouldn’t use butter.
[The Food in my Beard]
Green Beans with Toasted Walnuts and Dried-Cherry Vinaigrette
My brother makes really great green beans.
[The Bitten Word]
Lemony Brussels Sprout Slaw
Apparently raw is in this year.
Quinoa with Pine Nuts and Cumin-Lime Vinaigrette
Is it too much to serve both grains and potato dishes?
Roasted Carrots and Parsnips with White Balsamic
Roasted Cranberry Sauce
Because I will win the fight with Dad Gansie and there will be no jarred crap this year. Plus he adores Nick .
Spicy Cauliflower with Sesame
Spice should never be forgotten.
Squash Gratin with Poblanos & Cream
Cream is a requirement in at least one dish (besides mashers.)
[Food & Wine]
Sweet Potato and Sage Gratin
Death to marshmallows.
Sweet Potatoes with Pecans and Goat Cheese
White Bean-and-Black Olive Crostini
Are appetizers necessary?
