Thanksgiving Dinner

Holidays are always a special time to spend with family. Some of our family traditions have changed but one thing never has—the delicious food that is served. Each picture below has the recipe linked with it. I hope you enjoy this look into our family Thanksgiving Table.

Garlic and Herb No-knead Sourdough Bread THM E

Any of the above breads can be shaped into dinner rolls. I use a walnut size piece of dough for each dinner roll. Pictured below is Pumpkin Dinner Rolls shaped like a traditional dinner roll.

Dinners in my family always include the traditional roasted turkey. My husband and I have already smoked a turkey in our smokehouse and t hat is so delicious, too.

This cranberry glazed spiral cut ham makes lovely presentation and is a great alternative to the traditional roasted turkey.

My mother made the best Bread Stuffing. She would mix her stuffing and fry it in a bit of butter before baking. It was so delicious. I am trying to write her recipe down since her healthy is failing. She no longer is able to cook or help prepare meals. Everyone loved her Bread Stuffing and she would always make a large amount for Thanksgiving.

Baked Mac and Cheese THM S

This Mac n Cheese has a hidden veggie in it and you don’t even know it. Due to some of the grandchildren’s dietary restrictions we often had buttered green beans or broccoli as our vegetables on holiday meals. No holiday meal is complete without either candied sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes especially of you are Pennsylvania Dutch!

Kefir Olive Garden Salad Dressing THM S

Olive Garden Salad is our pick of salads. It usually takes a large dish since everyone in our family loves it.

Desserts–it is so hard to pick a favorite. Cranberry pie is always at our Thanksgiving meal, a pumpkin dessert, and a few others. I love to make cheesecake so I often make one of those.
