10 creative thanksgiving recipes, via pinterest.

I’ve been on Pinterest for a while now, but not until recently have I become obsessed with it.
OBSESSED, I tell you.

Lately I haven’t had as much time as I’d like to experiment with trying new recipes (as I’ve mentioned recently, I’ve pretty much been living on frozen meals), but I have had the time to sneak over to Pinterest and swoon over the amazing Thanksgiving recipe ideas that people come up with.

Although I can’t 100% vouch for any of these, I can say that they look incredible, and worth checking out if you’re wanting to switch up your traditional Thanksgiving spread this year.

For an impressive starter: pear slices topped with cream cheese, cranberries, and pistachios.

Sweet Potato and Honey Dinner Rolls look ideal for soaking up gravy.

Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes. The ingredients are the same as your traditional mashed potatoes, but according to Jessica, the flavor is anything but.

For a pasta dish, you could swap macaroni and cheese for Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion Stuffed Shells or Pumpkin Ravioli with Hazelnut Brown Butter Sauce and Balsamic Drizzle.

You can’t have Thanksgiving without the turkey, but who says it has to be a whole turkey? This Roasted Rosemary Orange Turkey Breast looks like a delicious alternative.

Dressing or stuffing? Stuffing or dressing? Either way, if it includes apples and sausage, it’s probably incredible.

Although it’s impossible to get sick of good old pumpkin pie, Pumpkin Dream Cake and Pumpkin Spice Truffles seem like quite the tasty new way to get your pumpkin fix.

And for the day after…Turkey Cranberry Monte Cristo.

I don’t know about you, but I just went from looking forward to Thanksgiving to counting down the minutes…

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Do you prefer the traditional foods or updated versions?

    Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday! I prefer mostly traditional, but love trying new recipes. This year, it’s traditional turkey, dilled mashed potatoes, or maybe brown butter, or both. Sausage stuffing, gravy, store-bought dinner rolls and pumpkin pudding cake. I haven’t yet decided on vegetables; that’s where I go non-traditional.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Gracie!

    Yum! We’re talking about our Thanksgiving menu this weekend and I cannot wait! Sausage-pear stuffing and sweet potatoes are always a fave 🙂 I’m thinking of making mini pumpkin pies for dessert, inspired a la Pinterest!
