Thanksgiving Dish To Pass Inspiration

How much of Thanksgiving Dinner are you responsible for this year? All of it? None of it? If you’re like most people, you’re probably somewhere in between. Mathew and I hosted 14 people for Thanksgiving one year. Our kitchen is tiny. We (ahem- Mathew) insisted on making everything for dinner. Never again!

Haha, we did ask guests to bring an appetizer for beforehand or a dessert to share afterward, but we really did make everything from the turkey down to every side dish. And there were a lot! We had to borrow our neighbor’s oven to get everything on the table for dinner. It was fun and the food was delicious and we were beaming with pride.

We’re fortunate to live close enough to both our families that usually we can just show up with a dish to pass and a dessert to share.

No matter where you fall, you may already have Thanksgiving on the brain. I thought I’d dive into Pinterest and search high and low through some of my favorite food blogger content to pull some of the best Thanksgiving food inspiration out there. I’ve pulled a bunch of ideas for dishes to pass and also some great dessert recipes as well.

I’m dividing this deliciously long Thanksgiving dish post into Appetizers, Vegetable Dishes, & Other Side Dishes, Desserts, and Cocktails & Drinks. Scroll away, friends!
