Although there’s something to be said for having a completely classic table of Thanksgiving dishes, it’s also fun to try something new every once in a while. Whether you’re looking to put together a whole table of new Thanksgiving recipes or just add one new dish to your menu this year, there are plenty of options to choose from below. You can add seasonal fall ingredients to classic dishes, adapt your menu to include options for guests with dietary constraints, or try some unusual dishes for the sake of breaking from tradition.
When putting together your Thanksgiving menu, be sure to remember your constraints. You only have one oven and you’ll likely be baking the turkey for several hours on Thanksgiving day. Therefore, you’ll need to plan ahead to pre-bake some dishes or choose Thanksgiving recipes that can be prepared on the stovetop or are served cold.
