Throw Thanksgiving Like Son of a Southern Chef!
Son of a Southern Chef's Top Ten Thanksgiving recipes which will have you covered!
From sides to pies, they're all his favorite thangs! #makeitgravy
1. Sweet Potato Pie with Gingerbread Crust and Marshmallow
This sweet potato pie is all about the layers: crunchy bottom, creamy center, and torched topping. It's a fantastic spin on the classic pie!
2. Cornbread That Ain't Sweet
No matter which side you're on, team sweet or team not-sweet, this cornbread is guaranteed to please everyone! It's topped with a chipotle honey butter!
3. No-Boil Mac and Cheese with Ham and Greens
If your family's anything like mine, mac and cheese is probably the first side to go on Thanksgiving. This no-fuss, no-boil mac will allow you to have back up for days and it's always perfect!
4. Broiled Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Balsamic Glaze
This dish just screams 'FALL' to me. Brussels sprouts, like most vegetables, develop its rich flavor when roasted or broiled. They're an easy side to throw on the table and the balsamic glaze adds a nice unexpected touch.
5. Butternut Squash Mash with Brown Sugar Syrup
This side is a great alternative to a sweet potato mash. They're fluffy, smooth, and has a nice balance of sweet and salty. They're also very easy to whip together (no pun intended).
6. Dad's Peach Cobbler Pie
My family's been making this pie for years, and it never fails to make us happy. Give this one a try -- my dad would be proud!
7. Curried Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes
If you're looking to jazz up some mashed potatoes, here's a good recipe to try. The addition of curry and cauliflower adds a new dimension of surprise to the experience.
8. Stuffing Stuffed Turkey Thighs with Gravy
For all my dark meat lovers, I've got you covered. Instead of cooking an entire 30-pound bird (which scares most people), just roast the thighs and stuff them with stuffing! Thanksgiving in one bite, son!
9. Classic Sweet Potato Pie
It's classic and it's good. Need I say more?
10. Brown-Butter Pecan Pie with Flaky Crust
The brown butter adds a nutty and rich quality to this already outstanding pie. It's such a crowd pleaser and the recipe is as straightforward as it gets.
Bonus Pie: Buttermilk and Almond Chess Pie
This pie is just too good to be missing from the list! It's unlike any pie I've ever created but it is uniquely delicious. Must Try!
