Thanksgiving Potluck Recipes

It’s the time of the year to give thanks for all the best things in our lives. We are certainly grateful for the chance to gather again and we’re also looking forward to cooking up delicious, homemade meals in our cozy kitchen for family and friends. If you’re heading to a Thanksgiving gathering, don’t show up empty handed. Instead, bring one of these tasty dishes.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Au Gratin

Turn this traditional potato dish on its head by completely flipping the script. Instead of the usual potatoes, cheese, and garlic, opt for these cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli and cauliflower give this dish the bite it deserves, while gooey, melted cheese offers all the comforts of this treasured November holiday. Get the recipe here.

Chopped Chickpea Salad

This dish walks on the lighter side of things and offers guests an easy and delicious way to get their greens. Crispy kale, roasted chickpeas, and a tangy lemon dressing will help this side item disappear fast. Finely chop each ingredient and garnish with pecans and pomegranate seeds for a picture-perfect fall salad that complements any Thanksgiving spread. Here’s one variation of this recipe.

Corn Salad with Bacon & Honey

While creamed corn is certainly a turkey day staple that many look forward to, this corn salad with salty bacon and sweet honey should totally replace the traditional menu item this year. Sweet, yellow corn mixes with a tart vinaigrette to create a perfect side dish that also doubles as delicious leftovers the day after. Here’s the recipe.

Zucchini Cornbread Muffins

No Thanksgiving Day meal is complete without the customary basket of dinner rolls. However, traditional white or wheat rolls could use a break. Break out the zucchini and your favorite cornbread recipe to create scrumptious baked goods that may steal the spotlight. Get the recipe here

Coconut Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

Take your sweet potatoes to new heights by introducing them to Bourbon and coconut. These sweet ingredients mix and mingle in this casserole. Top the bright orange creation with cinnamon-sugar coated pecans and your guests will delight in the creamy, crunchy dish. Here is the recipe.

Fresh Herb Stuffing

Your guests won’t miss the Stove Top stuffing they’ve had in years’ past once they taste this fresh herb stuffing. Use thyme, parsley, and whatever other favorite herbs you harvested from your garden this year to create an aromatic dish that will waft deliciously through the kitchen all afternoon.
