Thanksgiving is filled with family, friends, and food– three of our favorite things. At Blendtec, we think that your Thanksgiving only deserves the best, which is why we want you to enjoy gathering with your loved ones without worrying about the hours of preparation. Fortunately, making these recipes is quick and easy when you use a Blendtec blender.
From gravy to stuffing, mashed potatoes to dessert, this Thanksgiving recipe round-up isn't missing a thing. With the help of a Blendtec, you can prepare a Thanksgiving feast that will have guests coming back for seconds.
Start your Thanksgiving day off right with a French dessert with a twist. While pancakes are a fan favorite, crepes can add an air of simplicity and elegance. Described as ''thin and transparent like muslin, their edges trimmed to resemble fine lace,” these pumpkin crepes cook fast, making them an easy and satisfying option for the whole family. Fill it with your favorite spread and top it with powdered sugar or whipped cream.
Gravy is a staple for any Thanksgiving spread. For the smoothest gravy around, prep your broth, thickener, and water in your Blendtec blender before heating it on the stove. Then, drizzle it over the different types of meats, vegetables, and sides of your holiday meal.
Throw out your store-bought stuffing and opt for this easy, homemade creation. The pine nuts, Italian turkey sausage, and fennel elevate this dish, giving it a unique flavor and texture. Use it to stuff your Thanksgiving turkey, or bake it in the oven.
The turkey might get all the love, but we promise this Thanksgiving side dish is sure to be the star of your table. Although instant mashed potatoes are easy to whip together, nothing will wow your guests more than homemade creamy parmesan garlic mashed potatoes.
For many, cranberry sauce is a quintessential part of the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. This tart and tangy dish is a breeze to make and compliments the rest of the meal by providing a touch of tart sweetness. As a bonus, it's vegan, dairy-free, nut-free, and gluten-free.
Don't just settle for your typical buns, rolls, and biscuits. You need cornbread for a truly American meal. After all, corn is a grain native to the Americas, so there's no better way to recreate your Pilgrim feast than by including it in your Thanksgiving feast.
Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without indulging in a bit of pumpkin. After all, it's the epitome of fall. So swap the traditional pumpkin pie for a more exciting spiced pumpkin bread. It's packed with a pure pumpkin taste and autumnal spices. Plus, this extra moist bread is a special treat without loads of calories or fat.
Complete your feast with these soft and fluffy cookies. The pumpkin flavor paired with chocolate chips will make a family-favorite Thanksgiving dessert.
