Ready or not, Thanksgiving is next week and chances are you’re planning on doing some cooking – and of course, eating! I’ve accumulated a few of my favorite fall recipes over the years and even cooked the turkey for Thanksgiving last year, which followed with requests to cook the bird again this year. If you’re looking for some good fall recipes, for next week or not, try these!
Delta Roasted Turkey with Million-Dollar Gravy
This turkey was so tender and juicy, and the recipe was easy to follow. I swear the bacon and white wine make the difference!
Tip: I added more flour to the gravy, about ½-1 cup total, adding and stirring until I achieved the consistency I wanted.
Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
While this isn’t the exact recipe I make, the one I used is based off this classic from Chef John Folse.
Tip: I skip the stewing of the hen and grill or pan fry three chicken breasts and shred the meat.
Roast Beef with Horseradish-Mustard Sauce
I’ve made this recipe a few times and it always turns our perfect. It’s great for a crowd and can be served as slices or on a bun as a sandwich – great for parties!
Fall Vegetable Hash
This hash is a beautiful combination of fall veggies and the bacon adds a nice smokiness to the dish.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
A few years ago I stumbled across Annie’s Eats and made several of her cupcake recipes, but I am especially smitten with this pumpkin cream cheese muffin recipe. The flavor isn’t too strong and there’s just the right amount of sweet right in the center of each muffin. I promise this is worth the work!
Tip: I’ve learned to make two cream cheese logs (instead of one) the night before I make the rest of the recipe. It tends to thaw quickly, so working with one a time helps.
Enjoy and have a great Turkey Day and holiday season!
