The Everything-But-The-Turkey-And-The-Kitchen-Sink Thanksgiving Menu

Here it is... Your Everything-But-The-Turkey-And-The-Kitchen-Sink Thanksgiving Menu! Breakfast! Appies! Sides! Desserts! a.k.a. all the best things about Thanksgiving.

I’m not cooking for Thanksgiving this year because my kitchen currently looks like this:

Well that's what it looked like when I started this post, now it looks like this!

But last year I had 25 people over for Thanksgiving dinner...

so here’s all the things I cooked + a few more I’ve added this year. I’ve also included a breakfast section, because you gotta eat tomorrow morning and everyone forgets about breakfast! I did roast a turkey last year...

but this menu is focusing on everything else because I'm no turkey expert (I do use the "mo' butter, betta turkey" method, if you're wondering). Slather a pound of butter on that bird, throw it in the oven, and get working on the sides.

I'll also be missing my brother this year, who won't be my sous chef but will be making Thanksgiving dinner for his crew on the tug. I'll let you know if he sends me any good recipes home from the tug!

Since I’m not cooking, I’m living vicariously through y'all and your food… no pressure though😉 Without any more delays or shenanigans, here it is... click on each item to get linked to the recipe!
