Last Minute Thanksgiving Recipes

If you have waited until the last minute to make your Thanksgiving cooking list, have no fear. This Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup will save any procrastinator.

I don’t know about you, but November always flies by! I tend to find myself always freaking out just a little bit the weekend before Thanksgiving. Usually I haven’t finalized my menu or even started to order groceries. I’m not even a procrastinator, so it’s really out of character for me. So I rounded up some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes and thought I would share. While I may not make all of these recipes in one year, it’s a great list to draw from, especially if you are wanting to try out a few new Thanksgiving recipes this year.

Thanksgiving Appetizers

We usually have our Thanksgiving feast a couple hours before a typical dinner. To prevent people from being in the kitchen and wanting to eat before hand, I love to have a charcuterie board ready. The charcuterie board is always a hit. Here are some of my favorite additions to make it a little extra special.

Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip
This cranberry cream cheese dip is the most delightful holiday dip. It's easy to put together and makes a great addition to any appetizers or charcuterie boards.

Thanksgiving Bread

In my humble opinion, it’s not a Thanksgiving dinner without a good roll. Forget the store bought bread. You are extremely capable of making homemade rolls and your guests will love you for it.

These light and buttery rolls are the perfect addition to any Sunday dinner, soup, and a definite must for Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Desserts

You better same room for dessert! There is almost always a “pie table” no matter where you are eating for Thanksgiving. I love to add a few non pie desserts as well so everyone is happy.
