Thanksgiving. My absolute favorite holiday. When else during the year can you eat and drink like a pig and it’s totally acceptable to overindulge? We have some Thanksgiving recipes that always appear on our Thanksgiving table. These are recipes that someone brought to the party one year and they became instant family favorites. These are the recipes that people ask for over and over. Every family has those recipes, right?
These Thanksgiving recipes are not new to Mommy of a Monster; I’ve shared them all before. But if you are a procrastinator and have no idea what to serve on the big day, this recipe roundup will help!
Crowd Pleasing Thanksgiving Recipes
Jalapeno Creamed Corn
This Jalapeno Creamed Corn recipe is A-MAZ-ING and we eat it at almost every big family gathering we have. Don’t be frightened away by the jalapenos; you can de-seed them all first so they just add a bit of zip, not heat. This recipe was even featured on BlogHer!
The Best Broccoli EVER
This broccoli recipe is eaten at our house at least once a week, and Ethan will even eat it as a snack. It’s one of my most highly-pinned recipes, and is my 2nd most popular post. Yep, it’s that good!
Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Leeks, and Pine Nuts
Brussels sprouts aren’t for everybody, but if you love ’em or if you need a healthy side dish Thanksgiving recipe, this one is perfect. It’s tasty and rich and, well, yummy!
Upside Down Pumpkin Cake
No Thanksgiving is complete without pumpkin pie…or is it? This Upside Down Pumpkin Cake recipe is my claim to fame and a recipe I don’t give out very often. Make this cake and people will be begging for the recipe, they’ll ask you to bring it again next year, and they’ll think you spent all day baking when really you just dump a bunch of stuff in a pan! And this recipe is featured in Scary Mommy’s (YES! That Scary Mommy!) new book Guide To Surviving the Holidays. For more pumpkin recipes, check out my pumpkin recipe roundup from last year.
Or if you are looking for something other than pumpkin pie to serve, check out my Holy Cow Cake…it’s my #1 most popular post and recipe!
Not a big dessert fan? After dinner coffee takes on a whole new meaning with my Adults Only Coffee with Kahlua, Amaretto, and chocolate.
Tastes Like Thanksgiving Casserole
What to do with all of those leftovers? I’ve gotcha covered! I love making this Tastes Like Thanksgiving Casserole after the holiday, but also throughout the winter because it’s the ultimate comfort food!
