Today’s Memo: Thanksgiving Day Recipes

With less than a week until Thanksgiving, we know everyone out there is planning their menus!  Right?!  I will not to be hosting this year, but will be taking along a side dish (Mashed Caramel Apples).  Here are our favorite Five to Nine Creation posts that would be a delicious addition to your Holiday table! 

  1. Roasted Garlic Butter:  For one, this is amazing on your rolls.  But try using this flavored butter in your mashed potatoes.  I would not steer you wrong!

2.  Cookie Crusted Mini Pumpkin Pies:  Quite obviously pumpkin pie is a necessity on Thanksgiving, but these little cookie pies are a great addition to the table. 

Bet you can't eat just one!


3.  Baked Brie:  If your family is anything like mine, the eating starts in the early afternoon with a table full of appetizers.  This baked brie is easy, creamy, and delicious.  Serve up with crackers, toasted bread, or sliced apples. 



4.  Mashed Caramel Apples:  As mentioned above, this will be my offering this year.  This apple sauce is fantastic, and I know my kids will eat it up!  This recipe can even be made a day or two in advance! 



5.  Sautéed Sweet Corn:  Come on.  We know that corn is one of your favorite veggies!  Our creation, with honey and shallots, will be one of your favorites too.

6.  Everyday Salad:  Freshen up the menu with this great salad recipe.  Filled with Gorgonzola, apples, dried cranberries, and candied walnuts, you’ll be asking for seconds! 



7.  Balsamic Honey Roasted Carrots:  It’s hard to go wrong with roasted veggies.  These carrots are sweet, savory, and easy – just start with prewashed and cut baby carrots.



8.  Crockpot Cinnamon Honey Apples:  Free up your time and the oven with this crockpot recipe.  Just toss everything together before the crockpot finishes the job.

9.  Cheesy Roasted Vegetable Hash:  Potatoes, onions, and Brussels sprouts fill this side dish.  Already having mashed potatoes?  Omit the potatoes and add extra Brussels.

10.  Cran-Orange Greek Yogurt Slaw:  Another recipe that can be made a day in advance!  Light and refreshing, perfect with the heavy Holiday meal.
