What’s your traditions? I think Thanksgiving is one time you don’t vary away from the menu for dinner you grew up with. I have added the Baked Pineapple maybe about 10 years ago. Another added item is BBQ gravy – my son’s favorite for everything on his plate. I don’t have a recipe, but I will try to write it down as I make it Thursday.
My menu includes turkey, most of the time roasted and deep fried, dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes (sometimes prepared 2 ways), baked pineapple, Waldorf Salad – but I grew up as it being apple salad, stuffed celery, and olives. Depending on how many is coming, another veggie such as green beans (no casserole) or asparagus might be added, but we are all happy with just a simple menu. Dessert will always include Cocoa Ritz Pie, and sometimes a German Chocolate Cake. Those were always on the table growing up.
Here’s a few recipes you may want to add to your dinner menu.
