Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means it is time to decide on the dishes you plan to prepare for your family and friends. Great food makes the holidays extra special, and there are easy and delicious Thanksgiving dishes that are trending in 2019 to ensure you have at your dining table.
Thanksgiving dishes to consider
A great Thanksgiving meal typically consists of a great main dish, delicious sides and a tasty dessert. The following are three Thanksgiving dishes to consider that will make your Thanksgiving meal extra special.
Roasted Turkey & Gravy
You cannot go wrong with a classic roasted turkey served with gravy as it is easy to prepare and makes for a main dish that just about everyone at the table will love. To cook the turkey place the turkey breast side up in a roasting pan, add the desired seasoning and bake at 325 degrees for approximately three hours. Also, consider adding vegetables to the pan before setting the turkey, such as carrots, potatoes, onions, etc.
Many are choosing to add a unique twist to the classic turkey recipe, and you may prefer to try a fried turkey, barbeque turkey or perhaps orange honey seasoning for your roasted turkey. Do not be afraid to try new things to create the ultimate dish this Thanksgiving.
Sweet Potatoes with Pecans
Sweet Potatoes are a reliable and safe choice for a side item. One common trend to make the sweet potato dish unique is to add pecans, which adds extra flavor and makes it more unique. The first step in the process is to boil the potatoes slowly in a pot for approximately 30 minutes, and then allow the potatoes to cool while preparing the sweet potato mixture, which often includes mixing together butter, flour and brown sugar. Spread the pecans along with the sweet potato mixture over the potatoes inside of a baking pan, and then bake at 350 degrees for approximately forty-five minutes.
Apple Cranberry Crisp
A great Thanksgiving dinner is built upon a great main dish and delicious sides, but it will feel somewhat incomplete if you do not also have a great dessert to serve to your guests. With the majority of your time and attention likely dedicated to cooking the turkey(or another main dish) and the sides, it is helpful to have an easy dessert recipe that everyone will love.
To make Apple Cranberry Crisp, simply combine apples, cranberries, sugar and flour into a baking pan and mix the topping ingredients over the apple and cranberry mixture. You then bake at 350 degrees for forty-five minutes to an hour and you are finished! Let it cool, and it is ready to serve within two hours.
The bottom line
A delicious turkey with awesome sides and tasty dessert is the key to a great Thanksgiving dinner. Of course, there are other ways to prepare, and the key is to have fun and make dishes you feel your guests will love.
