We all know turkey is the star of Thanksgiving spreads, and our recipe contributor Stacey Little of SouthernBite.com has plenty of tips for making a crowd-pleasing bird. Like how to spatchcock a turkey. And how to use a slow cooker to make the perfect turkey breast.
But every star needs a supporting cast. And Stacey has you covered there, too, with super simple recipes that are sure to get everyone at the table talking… and asking YOU for the recipe! So whether you’re the go-to cook responsible for the entire spread or you’re entrusted to bring a dish for a Thanksgiving potluck — try out one of these surefire recipes, starting with Crispy Roasted Okra with Creamy Lemon Dressing. Thanks to Stacey, we’ve discovered roasting is the best way to prepare okra. Pair that with this super yummy dressing, and it’s an appetizer that’ll be gone before you know it!
Or maybe you’ve been assigned to bring a salad. But which do you choose — a creamy dish like Pasta Salad or a green dish featuring lettuce? Good news — with this Pasta Caesar salad, you get the best of both worlds! It puts greens on everyone’s plates and the pasta will even appeal to the pickiest of Thanksgiving guests.
If you want something a little more straight-forward, then this Easy Roasted Cabbage is just the ticket! It only takes a handful of ingredients to turn this usual “ugly duckling” vegetable into a swan of a supporting dish.
And finally, for those who want a show-stopper, this Tomato Cobbler with Pimento Cheese Biscuits is super easy and super impressive. It’s salty. It’s acidic. And it’s just down-right tasty.
