And so ‘tis you who’s been awarded the responsibility of hosting Thanksgiving dinner feast this year. And maybe you have your in-laws visiting this year too. Or perhaps you got invited to some exclusive thanksgiving potluck dinner party, and your roasted Brussels sprouts just won’t suffice.
And your boss is visiting with his wife, a food influencer with a huge following, or that one cousin who personally knows Gordon Ramsay will be joining this year… ok, perhaps these Thanksgiving scenarios are getting a bit too specific and unrealistic.
But the point is there’s always a reason to fancy it up, take your regular thanksgiving side dishes to the next level and impress whoever it is you consider worth impressing.
So put on your chef hat and get ready to make some festive gratins, pumpkin dinner rolls, parsnip mash, savory sweet potato crumble, and stop the show with tempura onion strings green bean casserole.
Many of these show-stopping Thanksgiving side dishes are not that complicated and can be prepared ahead of time. It’s time you stole the Thanksgiving spotlight.
