5 Tasty Recipes to Mix Up Your Thanksgiving Menu

This Thanksgiving, surprise your guests with a few fun recipe swaps to the traditional feast. Today, we’re sharing five mouthwatering ways we are mixing it up this year.

Easy Homemade Biscuits

Sugar Spun Run

On a trip to Charleston we had the best flaky, buttery biscuits. It got us thinking, why bother with rolls that never turn out quite as good as we hoped when biscuits are practically fool proof? Six ingredients, no yeast, and perfectly soft and flaky every time.


Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Warm Honey Glaze

Bon Appetit

Instead of creamy green bean casserole, we’re welcoming the crispier texture of roasted brussels sprouts this year. Fresh brussels, roasted until crispy, and seasoned with salt, red pepper and a honey glaze–delish!


Small Batch Apple Butter

Dessert for Two

Along with gravy and cranberry sauce, we are serving apple butter this year. With cinnamon, cloves, and allspice it tastes like Fall in a jar. It’s going to be perfect on our biscuits, but also the turkey for guests who aren’t crazy about gravy. Make it a day or two early and fill your home with the scent of fall. If your hosting out of town guests, make it the day they are due to arrive. The cooking apple and spices would create the warmest welcome.

Herb Roasted Turkey Breast

Roasting a whole turkey can be intimidating and, no matter how you prep it, is almost always dry. Instead, try roasting just the breast for a more flavorful, juicy meat in much less time.


Magnolia Bakery’s Banana Pudding

Have you had the banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery? It’s to die for. We’ve included this in our Thanksgiving dessert lineup the last few years and it has become a family favorite.
