Check out Giving Thanks: Tasty Treats for your Thanksgiving Feast

by Jessica at

In our family, Thanksgiving isn’t complete unless plans are made last minute and dishes are being thrown together on the fly. Additional guests always show up and the house is a mess, but the memories made and time spent together is what the day is all about.

With the sixteen delicious recipes I’ve gathered for you in this Foodie Collection, your Thanksgiving dinner, dessert and leftovers are covered. From the Apple Brined Turkey, Smashed Cauliflower Gratin with Goat Cheese and Lightened-Up Sweet Potato Casserole, to the Mini Pumpkin Tarts, Brown Butter Pecan Pie and Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Pesto Panini, each guest will be incredibly happy, full and (hopefully) thankful.

Giving Thanks with HoneyBaked Ham | #HoneyBakedHoliday

If you’re already experiencing that annual holiday stress, then worry no more. The wonderful people of HoneyBaked Ham are here to help!

Since 1956, HoneyBaked has been at the center of special family gatherings. They handcraft their foods to ensure only the highest quality reaches your family table. And while you’re making memories with your loved ones, you can trust HoneyBaked to deliver an authentic, perfect taste that everyone will love.

I always let my anxiety get the best of me… and I end up wrestling with what to cook, how to decorate, where to seat everyone, etc., but after visiting the Plano, TX location and working with Jason, my stress melted away and the menu planned itself! This Thanksgiving, I’m serving HoneyBaked’s Roasted Turkey Breast, which is trimmed by hand, carefully seasoned, then fire-glazed to perfection with their one-of-a-kind sweet, crunchy glaze.

Along with the Roasted Turkey Breast, I chose two of their Heat & Share sides of Green Bean Casserole and Cornbread Stuffing. As the name implies, all you have to do is heat them right in the package, then share with your hungry dinner guests. With so many dishes to choose from, it’s easy to make everyone happy! And for dessert? HoneyBaked’s perfect Pumpkin Pie. Sweet and creamy, this traditional pie is easy to serve and incredibly delicious.
