Thanksgiving Main Course Recipes

Thanksgiving Main Course Recipes

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching I thought that it was about time that I dusted off and updated the roundups of all of my favourite Thanksgiving dishes starting with the main course. I have to say that a simple roast turkey is my favourite main course and I am always looking forward to it! Although you could get all fancy with your roast turkey, you really don't have to as a long as you roast it properly, that turkey is going to shine all by itself. Since I generally serve Thanksgiving diner to a small group of people I often opt to just go with a large turkey breast which is much easier to roast but you do miss out on all of the dark meat and the bone that you can make turkey stock from. If turkey is just not your thing or if you are just bored with it or if you are serving to a large group of people and want a second roast, you cannot go wrong serving a ham, a roast beef or even a roast lamb. Without further ado, on to the recipes:

You're right - turkey cannot be without gravy/cranberrry sauce :)

Thanks for this post. It will certainly come in handy for this festive season.

Looks really delicious, love the jalapeño ideas.. We may try them out !

I never mess with my cranberry sauce on T-Day because I've FINALLY gotten my family to concede that the one that I make is way better than a can...and that took years, so trying to get them to adapt to another option would probably cause a mutiny. but I definitely want to try these other varieties you have here!

Beef for Thanksgiving? Must be a Canadian thing. Christmas on the other hand is a nice time to have a standing rib roast.
