Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we wish everyone in our community and beyond a joyful time around the table with family and friends! You could spend days—even weeks—preparing your Thanksgiving feast, but for the procrastinators among us, it’s possible to create a delicious meal in far less time.
In the spirit of enjoying a stress-free Turkey Day, try a few of these quick and easy recipes!
Let’s start with the main dish that usually requires the bulk of your day: the turkey. While it’s a total must for Thanksgiving, it doesn’t need to be so time-consuming. The Roast Satchcocked Turkey is split down the middle, backbone removed, and roasted flat. This method of cooking takes a little over an hour and results in every bite tasting deliciously moist and perfectly roasted!
Making mashed potatoes can be a pain, especially when you have to peel and drain enough potatoes to feed a small army. With this method you don’t have to worry about either of those steps! As long as you don’t mind some peels in your mashed potatoes and doing less than half the work, then these mashed potatoes are your go-to recipe.
Sometimes simple is better, especially for stuffing. This recipe requires only 30 minutes of prep time and is filled with celery, shallots, garlic, and parsley. Try drying the bread crumbs and cutting the veggies a day in advance to help this stuffing come together quicker on Thanksgiving day.
Don’t resort to cranberry sauce this year! Here is a quick and easy recipe that is sweet, tart, and delicious. You can choose to keep it chunky or pureed, and don’t forget to make extra for leftover turkey sandwiches!
We didn’t forget about veggies! Smothered in garlic and bacony goodness, these brussel sprouts are on a whole other level than the brussels you feared as a child. They only take 50 minutes in total to prep, cook, and prepare, and we promise they’ll be a hit with even the pickiest of your guests!
