Over the course of Smitten Kitchen's ten year life, Deb Perelman has amassed enough Thanksgiving recipes to fill a whole table with her own brainchildren: There's apple cider sangria, pretzel Parker House rolls, squash toasts, kale and caramelized onion stuffing, green bean casserole, root vegetable gratin, classic pumpkin pie with pecan praline sauce... and the list goes on. You could have an entirely Smitten Kitchen Thanksgiving—and we're tempted to!
But we asked Deb to look, perhaps unnecessarily, outside her own site and use our Thanksgiving Menu Genie to see if it could tempt with any new-to-her recipes.
With the exception of Momofuku's Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Deb's picks are fairly classic, which makes sense considering her Turkey Day mantra: "I don’t think we travel by buses, trains, cars and planes, often during inclement weather and even more brutal traffic because we’re secretly hoping our family ditched the known-and-loved standards [...] for an edgy new recipe someone found in a fancy food magazine this year."
What about you: Do you try fancy new recipes on Thanksgiving or do you stick with family classics? Tell us in the comments.
