There are many different traditions when it comes to Thanksgiving, but the one thing everyone does is eat food. Having a Thanksgiving feast is something people have been doing since the Pilgrims created this holiday. Here are some of the best traditional foods to eat this Thanksgiving.
Turkey- It isn’t Thanksgiving if turkey is not being served at the table. You can prepare your turkey by filling it with fruit, vegetables, or other types of stuffing , and then roasting it in the oven. You can then top your turkey off with some seasoning to really make the flavor pop.
Stuffing- What is the turkey without the filling? Traditionally, stuffing is made of bread, herbs, and any other ingredient you want to put in it. You can fill the turkey with this, or you can serve it as a side dish.
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy- This is one of the most popular traditional side dishes to eat during this holiday. All you have to do is crush some potatoes and add butter, milk and garlic to them. For the gravy, use the juices left over after from the cooked turkey, thicken it with flour, and then pour it on the potatoes to give it more flavor.
Rolls- Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without rolls. The best rolls are warmed up in the oven and topped with butter to enhance the flavors.
Pumpkin Pie- This autumn flavored desert is a must have at your Thanksgiving feast. The best pumpkin pie has whip cream on top of the pumpkin filled pie crust.
