THE ULTIMATE LIST OF SOUTHERN THANKSGIVING RECIPES
The turkey gets a lot of talk on Thanksgiving Day, and indeed, it is one impressive specimen when roasted to perfection. In fact, you can find a recipe for the most perfectly roasted Thanksgiving turkey you ever laid tastebuds on within this very site.
However, I think it's safe for us to say Thanksgiving is just as much about the sides (and the desserts) as it is that beautiful bird. And, let us not forget about the appetizers.
It's wise to have a few nibbles on hand to keep hunger at bay on Thanksgiving day. This will help to keep those back-seat cooks out of the kitchen, and the inevitable "When will it be ready?" questions few and far between.
When it comes to Thanksgiving, it's all about tradition in the South, and people expect to see their favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. Who are we to deny them? If you are hosting this year, planning your Thanksgiving menu around the well-known, crowd-pleasing favorite side dishes is a win for everyone.
You'll definitely find all the classic pie recipes here. But, let us not overlook the beauty and simplicity of a handheld treat!
