Last Minute Thanksgiving Dishes
If you're still scrambling for meal ideas on this Thanksgiving Eve Eve, allow me to make a few suggestions! These are all recipes I've made and enjoyed more than once.
My mom often makes Emeril's Cornbread and Andouille Dressing for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I look forward to it! (Memory time: one sad year, she pulled the finished dressing out of the oven and set it on the hot stove, and the Pyrex exploded. We've all been very careful with Pyrex ever since.)
Here's my favorite sweet potato recipe, which I got from my friend Rachael years ago. It has a brown sugar and pecan glaze, and no marshmallows.
For a different take on sweet potatoes, these Savory Sweet Potatoes from Crepes of Wrath are amazing.
On the lighter side:
Balsamic Roasted Carrots
Green Beans with Brown Butter and Garlic
Sauteed Collard Greens and Garlic
Maple-Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin Sandwich Cake
Pear and Cranberry Pie
Applesauce Spice Cake
Bon appetit! :)
