We scoured the internet to find out which ingredients and recipes are resonating with consumers this Thanksgiving.
Take a peek:
This spin on the traditional Thanksgiving promises to deliver a few extra unexpected savory notes to the plate. For an added touch, use homemade asiago focaccia bread to bring a unique crunch to this side dish.
Miso Rubbed Turkey
As we mentioned in our New York Restaurant Week blog piece in August, Asian inspired fare is still on-trend. Why not let the subtle umami flavor come to life in this year’s turkey? Blend some miso and puréed onions, rub the mixture under the skin of your unbrined turkey, and viola!
Bacon-Wrapped Brussel Sprouts
This one is blowing up the Instagram world. So grab some toothpicks, maple syrup, brussel sprouts, and bacon for a side veg full of flavor. We won’t bore you with a recipe, though. We know you’ll find a way to add your own twist come munch time.
Pears and Cranberry Sauce
Add a hint of honey and ginger to your cranberry sauce this Thanksgiving. You will need about a pound of cranberry sauce for every 3 bosc pears to keep the cranberries front and center. This one’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Polenta stuffing isn’t your typical Thanksgiving tradition, but the unconventional ingredient works perfectly with the recipes mentioned above, namely the sage. cranberries, and sausage.
