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:
Parmesan and Sage Roasted Turkey Breast
Maple and Chipotle Roasted Turkey Breast
Bourbon Gingersnap Crusted Ham
Perfect Eye of Round Roast Beef
Greek Style Roast Leg of Lamb with Lemon Roasted Potatoes
Bacon Wrapped Roast Pork with Apple Chutney
Apricot Glazed Bacon Wrapped Cajun Pork Tenderloin
Roasted Lamb in Coffee Sauce
Guinness Glazed Slow Cooker Corned Beef
Bacon Wrapped, Mushroom and Spinach Stuffed Pork Tenderloin in a Creamy Dijon Goat Cheese Sauce
Slow Cooker Balsamic Glazed Roast Beef
Harvest Skillet Chicken with Apples, Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

You gave me some inspiration for this Thursday. Thanks!
wow, hope to have something half so yummy-looking sitting in front of me on Thanksgiving!
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!
This just made me sooo hungry. Looks so yummy. Wow. You are giving me great ideas for thanksgiving. 🙂

Your food always tastes just makes me so hungry. I love the colours here. Definitely I’ll make this in Thanksgiving.
Beef for Thanksgiving? Must be a Canadian thing. Christmas on the other hand is a nice time to have a standing rib roast.
Some great recipes! Im getting excited for Thanksgiving!!

Kevin, are you such a glutton for punishment that you celebrate AND cook for both Canadian and U.S. Thanksgiving days. I guess it helps to have six or seven weeks in between.
