From appetizers to salads, veggies — and of course potatoes — all of the recipes you need to be inspired for your Thanksgiving dinner.
gluten-free sausage balls
I highly recommend making these at the beginning of the week to have a grab-and-go breakfast or even as a make-ahead appetizer or side dish for Thanksgiving dinner.
There’s nothing healthy here to see. Just a good old fashioned appetizer that is perfect for the holidays!
chorizo-stuffed bacon-wrapped dates
Served over a creamy roasted red pepper sauce, these little bites will wow your family and your taste buds!
bibb lettuce salad with black truffle vinaigrette and mimolette
It’s almost difficult for me to put into words how much I love this salad. It’s so simple, yet so elegant, and it’s just absolutely show-stopping and delicious!
shaved celery and fennel salad
I am a celery lover through and through and I know this Shaved Celery and Fennel Salad will make you one too.
bacon-balsamic green beans
On Thanksgiving day we already have enough work to do in the kitchen…so this Bacon-Balsamic Green Beans side dish will be perfect to make your day a little easier, but still packed full of flavor!
apple cider roasted root vegetables
One of my favorite ways to eat root vegetables is with this recipe — bursting with flavor and perfectly roasted!
brussels sprouts au gratin
The end result of this recipe is restaurant worthy and perfect for changing things up for Thanksgiving this year!
texas-style mac and cheese
I don’t know how, but I missed this DELICIOUS dish when I first posted this round-up! It’s a must on the Thanksgiving table — and great to make ahead for one less dish to make on Thanksgiving Day.
sour cream and onion potato bake
Here is a recipe that combines two of my favorite things: sour cream and onion flavor + mashed potatoes. The end result is just heavenly.
whole30 scalloped potatoes
I must confess. I did add a tiny bit of cheese to the layers which, totally defeats the purpose of making them Whole30/Dairy-free but here is the deal: it’s great with or without the cheese addition!
whole30 + paleo potato-leek au gratin
Potatoes sliced oh-so thinly, filled with a delicious saute of onion and leeks, and then smothered in a delicious, creamy sauce and baked to perfection!
scalloped sweet potatoes
Over the years I’ve become quite the sweet potato lover and I know that it is something that most of you grew up having on your Thanksgiving table– so I thought it would be fun to make a delicious sweet potato dish that would be perfect for the Thanksgiving table!
whole30 mashed potatoes
Who doesn’t love creamy, delicious mashed potatoes?
whole30 spatchcocked turkey + turkey gravy
Unless you want your giant bird up for display as a centerpiece at thanksgiving – spatchcocking is a great way to get a delicious turkey on the table!
