Five Thanksgiving Recipes to Try

Happy Friday. It’s time for 5 things. Today’s topic is Five Thanksgiving Recipes to Try.

five-things-friday1Why not join the party over at Clare’s blog, Fitting It All In, and share 5 Thanksgiving recipes you’re thinking about trying.

Pinterest is good for so many things. This week, it’s good for looking up delicious Thanksgiving recipes. One day I will attempt to make these. But right now I will salivate over their pictures and share them with you.

1. Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Bacon, and Apples - from Little Pink Monster

Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite veggies. They have a reputation of being child repellent. I must admit, I was known to dislike Brussels sprouts as kiddo. But that’s because my mom boiled them until they were mushy and gross. My aunt did that as well, so I assumed that’s how Brussels sprouts were supposed to be. The secret to great sprouts is to roast them. Bonus points for throwing in bacon and apples. This looks like a delicious Thanksgiving side dish that the whole family can enjoy.

2. Mashed Cauliflower – from Elena’s Pantry

Mashed potatoes are a Thanksgiving staple. But potatoes are too starchy for my gut healing plan. So I’m going to try to make mashed cauliflower. I’ve already tried cauli-rice, which I enjoy way better than real rice. I’m sure mashed cauliflower will be just as good, if not better, than real mashed potatoes.

3. Grain Free Herbed Biscuits - from Ditch the Wheat

Every Thanksgiving meal needs a good biscuit. Even if you’re like me and don’t eat grains. These grain free biscuits look like they’d be the perfect addition to any Thanksgiving menu.

4. Cran-Apple Sauce – by Real Food Forager

I’m purposely leaving off turkey recipes. Turkey on Thanksgiving is a given. Or tofurkey. Whatever you’re into. My mom always made turkey on Thanksgiving, and it was so dried out and bleh. I needed to cover it with cranberry sauce. I found a cran-apple sauce recipe that I think will go great with any bite of turkey, no matter how moist or dry it is.

5. Paleo Pumpkin Pie Bars - by PaleOMG

“OMG!” is what you’ll be saying when you try these pumpkin pie bars. I don’t really know that for sure so I’m making assumptions. Pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving seems kind of cliche. I want to try something new, but I’m not ready to give up on pumpkin desserts just yet.

Q: What are you planning to make this Thanksgiving?
