Stop talking about turkey. These delicious sides are sure to be the centerpiece of your Thanksgiving table. There’s a good reason for that. It’s downright delicious, super nutritious, and evokes classic comfort with a delicious twist. The menu includes traditional cornbread infused with butternut squash, sweet and salty bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with feta, and parmesan with crunchy, cheesy crumbled broccoli. Get ready to get goblind!
bacon wrapped dates
These bite-sized treats are insanely delicious. This is a unique and mouth-watering combination that requires just two ingredients. Dates provide a sweet crunch (it’s like candy, really) and turkey bacon provides a salty, savory satisfaction. Plus, you can take the flavor to the next level by slicing the dates open, adding a teaspoon of feta or goat cheese and wrapping them in bacon. Easily scale recipes up or down depending on your dining companions. Don’t skip the step of soaking the toothpicks. This will help prevent burning. I also serve these gems at family parties and they go away quickly so I highly recommend making a nice big bunch.
For me, cornbread is more than just a side dish. It whispers the holiday season and celebrates the collection of flavor, texture and nutrition. And of course, this is more than just cornbread. We blend the natural sweetness of butternut squash into our dough and add extra vitamins and minerals to create a beloved bread classic. The result is a rich, moist, crumbly masterpiece that’s perfect for any occasion, but perfect for Thanksgiving.
“Yes, Cheese”! Devouring this side will put a smile on your Thanksgiving table. Broccoli doesn’t always get a lot of attention, but when mashed, sprinkled with parm, and roasted until perfect golden brown, It’s definitely a crowd-pleaser.With each floret covered in a coating of cheese, its crispy edges are truly one-of-a-kind.
