These 12 Tweaks On Turkey Day Favorites Will Win Your #Thanksgiving




 BRING ON THE TURKEY!


I love love love Thanksgiving. It's one of the only, if not only, holidays that keeps the focus on family, friends, giving and thankfulness. I look forward to the glorious day every year. My family is relatively small, so we plan to spend the day together. We cook as a family, we fight as a family, we drink as a family, we play football as a family. It's absolutely brilliant. Dysfunction and all! 

In honor of celebrating my favorite meal of the entire year, I've been looking everywhere for fun twists on Thanksgiving Day Favorites. Here at 12 that might make it on my table this year! 



Rosemary Bread Cornucopia from Lilly Shop
I LOVE THIS!


Send those snack-y guests packing with a breadstick and bowl of Roasted Sweet Potato Soup from Simply Recipes. TIP: Prepare the night before!




I'm trying these potatoes this year. 
Leave it to me to find a way to get Goat Cheese on the table.
Lawd I love that creamy goodness!


Don't forget the Kiddie Crowd Pleaser, Carrots!  
This recipe for Honey Glazed Baby Carrots from Damn Delicious is spot on!


I make Honey Glazed Baby Carrots Every Year. Actually, multiple times a year. So easy and so good.

Fresh Healthy Green Bean Casserole from Gimme Some Oven, is definitely worth checking out.



Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Bacon 
This is my go-to recipe. LOVE IT

Two Words, 


I LOVE this idea!
You can use any stuffing recipe you want, just bake into muffin tins.

Just the two of you? Try this Cranberry Hazelnut Turkey Wellington 


Of course, it can be done... Crockpot Turkey. Never had it, but Practical Stewardship says it's the way to go!



Because. Bacon.
Bacon Wrapped Turkey is easier than it looks.





I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe!
My Brother-in-Law made it a few years ago and I have begged for it at every holiday since.
 OH. SO. GOOD.


Make Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes the day before, then douse in whip cream and serve with coffee after dinner!

I'm making these!


Are you a traditional turkey and sides kind of person, or do you like things to have a wild twist too?
