My Thanksgiving Favorites

In case some of you are trying to do some last-minute menu planning, the slacker blogger in me put together a quick list my personal Thanksgiving favorites:


Important. You should always have breakfast – especially when it includes cinnamon rolls or casserole.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Maple Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

My Mom’s Breakfast Casserole – similar recipe here.

Or you know, a bagel slathered with peanut butter before running a half marathon. Guzzle beer after half. That counts, right?


An often overlooked part of Thanksgiving, having snacks around to prep the stomach for a day full of eating is always a good idea. Plus it keeps unwanted hands out of the kitchen.

Buffalo Brie Bites

Roasted Chickpeas

Plain old veggie tray with dip – always a winner in our house!


I’m truly a fan of Thanksgiving sides. To me, its the best part of the meal. I could go completely without turkey – just sides.

French’s Green Bean Casserole – you really can’t beat it.

Bacon-Wrapped Green Beans

Basic Mashed Potatoes

Traditional Stuffing

Honey Glazed Carrots

Sister Shubert Parker House Rolls are like crack. Just a warning.

Browned Butter Sweet Potato Casserole

The Bird

Deep-Fried Turkey


You know what I said about Sides being the best part of Thanksgiving? I lied. It’s actually dessert.

Bayou Brownies

Pumpkin Pie

Pecan Pie

Homemade Whipped Cream

  1. You just made me hungry! My favorites are the sides too……..and the wine, but that’s more of an every day thing. I’m trying a new dressing–cornbread dressing with sausage and apples……I’m always hesitant to try new things at Thanksgiving because the basics are so freakin’ good!
