Thanksgiving is probably our favorite holiday for multiple reasons – it’s really the start of the holiday season for us, and it brings our family and friends together. But we also can’t deny that our Thanksgiving dinner is pretty flippin’ fantastic, if we do say so ourselves. Of course, we have our family traditions, especially when it comes to certain dishes we look forward to all year, so sometimes it can be hard to justify experimenting. But luckily – being a family of foodies – we’re always on the lookout for ways to spice things up and potentially find new dishes to add to the annual mix!
Turkey tends to be the centerpiece of any Thanksgiving meal (although the stuffing would beg to differ), so we’re constantly on a mission to find the absolute best recipe out there for it. This means literally trying anything and everything under the sun since we live by the motto, “you never know until you try.” This philosophy has led us to discover some truly unique and delicious Thanksgiving turkey recipes from some amazing recipe bloggers around the country, and we wanted to share some of our best finds!
So when you’re compiling your shopping list this year with the usual ingredients, take a second to consider trying something new! Even if it’s not one of these Thanksgiving turkey recipes, we hope this list can give you some holiday inspiration and motivation to think outside the box. Let’s get to it!
