A Complete Thanksgiving Meal Compliments Of Lucky Larry
If you're a last minute planner (like I am sometimes), you might not have your complete Thanksgiving dinner planned yet and I'm here to help! I did a quick search and found some traditional Thanksgiving dinner recipes to help you out on your last minute planning!
Every Thanksgiving dinner should be center around a succulent and juicy turkey. You can try this recipe for a roasted garlic and meyer lemon rubbed turkey. Check out the recipe from the Huffington Post.
It's a natural pairing and every time I think of turkey I think of dressing. Now I know there's a huge variety of dressing - do you make it with bread or cornbread? I'm a cornbread kind of guy. So in this recipe it says you can substitute cornbread for bread. However, I DO NOT turn down my grandmothers recipe for bread/cornbread stuffing - sorry, I'm not turning that one over!
Green beans have come a long way and now they're on just about everyone Thanksgiving table in the form of a casserole. You can't go wrong with Paula Deen's Green Bean recipe.
Sweet potatoes are one of my family favorites. Here is a great recipe - the only thing I would add to it is maybe some marshmallows on top once it comes out of the oven or just before coming out.
Now some would say the perfect ending to a Thanksgiving meal would be pumpkin pie. Here's where I disagree! My grandfather makes the best pecan pies in the world! Sorry again, I won't be divulging this recipe either! But I did find a simple southern pecan pie online that you can try out though!
