Thanksgiving Recipes

I'm posting this a little late for the Canadian readers since Thanksgiving dinners are being held tonight and tomorrow night. For the American readers, maybe some of these recipes will give you inspiration for your meal next month!

My mom's classic and our family favourite - Moist Bread Sausage Apple Stuffing. I changed it up this year by adding fresh chopped sage. Delicious!

A new favourite (of mine) - Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli and Asparagus with Garlic Balsamic Reduction. My other Brussels Sprouts favourite is when they are sautéed with onion and bacon!

Or how about Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Brown Butter Sauce.

Another new dish - Roasted Root Vegetables with Candied Pumpkin Seeds. I made this one last year instead of mashed potatoes.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Sounds like you had some good eats this Thanksgiving. Do you always do your stuffing outside of the bird? My mom never does it that way, and I'm unsure how to cook it to keep it moist should it not be in a bird.

  2. When I made my turkey dinner last year I didn't stuff the turkey. Instead I filled the cavity with garlic, onions, oranges and herbs. I cooked the stuffing in baking dishes and basted it with turkey juices while it cooked. Adding chicken broth also helps.

    My mom normally cooks some stuffing in the bird and the rest in a baking dish. When it's done, she mixes the two together.
