The year 2020 has been quite an eventful year and almost every holiday has had to be changed due to the Covid-19 crisis, but there is still so much to be thankful for! Thanksgiving is about family, friends, and of course, tons of food – so in this article, we will be sharing our top five Thanksgiving dishes!
If you have ever watched a Thanksgiving movie, you have definitely witnessed how important having a turkey is at Thanksgiving is. Surprisingly, according to travel.com, turkey wasn’t even present at the first thanksgiving dinner!
Still, turkey is a great main course for your Thanksgiving feast! However, it can be tricky to cook. So, if you overcook it, just make sure to add a little more cranberry sauce!
Most turkeys are cooked in the oven after being stuffed with vegetables or herbs; nevertheless, they can also be cooked in a slow cooker, on a grill etc. To have in addition to this main course, sides such as cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing, or green beans go great with turkey!
Honey-baked ham is a very good Thanksgiving dish. There are a variety of sides you can eat it with, such as coleslaw, or cranberry sauce.
Some people make their own honey-baked ham and grill it, while others buy it already cooked or they make it and roast it in the oven.
The key ingredient (this is kind of obvious) to making honey-baked ham is honey of course! Adding just a thin layer of honey to your ham can give it wonderful flavor, making a perfect dish to eat on Thanksgiving.
Green Bean Casserole
Casseroles have always been a great meal to eat, like chicken casserole or beef casserole. But, one of the Thanksgiving favorites is a green bean casserole topped with crispy dried onions!
Green beans are always a good green to eat, and if you want something healthy for Thanksgiving, try this meal!
Where to begin…..Oh! That’s right, stuffing is one of the best sides that complete the Thanksgiving meal! Full of crumbled pieces of bread, herbs, celery, carrots and more, it’s what everyone looks forward to having leftovers of.
Stuffing can also be made with fruit such as apples or cranberries. This type of stuffing would be a perfect Thanksgiving dessert!
Potatoes are a very common side dish found at almost every meal but are still a staple at Thanksgiving. They can be mashed, sliced, or diced and are great with a little salt and pepper. They are usually cooked in the oven or, if you mashed the potatoes, on the stovetop.
This Thanksgiving, keep an eye out for your favorite dish!
