Thanksgiving Menu Recipe Ideas

Thanks for Sharing!

I featured Thanksgiving menu recipe ideas this week, since this month’s Home Matters Party theme is all about recipes and holiday family traditions. The recipes include foods that you think of being on traditional Thanksgiving menus. Enjoy!

Welcome to the weekly Home Matters Link Party #405!

A great place to come, share your blog posts, and make new friends.

The Home Matters Party has about 100 bloggers from around the world who share their home decor, crafts, and recipes each week. Thank you to all our participants!

Take a look at last week’s party in case you missed it!

One of our families favorite recipe that goes on our holiday menu every year, is Betty Crocker’s Strawberry Pretzel Salad. It is absolutely divine! Our stuffing is always Stove Top turkey stuffing mix which appeals to even the pickiest of eaters.

What are your Thanksgiving favorite dishes that have become a mainstay over the years? Share them with others in the comment section!

Lois, from Walking on Sunshine, shares a classic Thanksgiving stuffing recipe with us. It’s a simple recipe that’s a traditional staple of all Thanksgiving dinners. She also has a link to a crock pot stuffing recipe for those who need your oven for other dishes.

Kristy, from Mommy Hates Cooking, tells us how to cook a Ninja Foodi/Air Fryer turkey breast. Not everyone has a large family, so this recipe is perfect for a small number of guests of 4 to 6.

Alison, from Organized Motherhood, shares a healthy sweet potatoes recipe which uses honey as a natural sweetener. If you want to kick it up a notch, add pecans and marshmallows!

Alea, from Premeditated Leftovers, has a delicious looking homemade orange cranberry sauce for us. She makes her sauce much smoother than the usual chunky cranberry sauce. The leftovers are perfect for using as spread on turkey sandwiches!
