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.

Side Dishes

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.

Parmesan Polenta

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! :)

  1. I am making Cranberry Pear sauce and Artichoke Gratin. My grandmother always makes Chicken and Dumplings and homemade rolls. I don't think we will go hungry this year :)
