Beyond the Stuffing

Looking for some truly unique ideas to serve for Thanksgiving? I’ve had my eyes peeled for weeks looking for treats to wow.

First up, I came across this imaginative Turkey shaped challah from Sweet Happy Life! Talk about an impressive piece to keep your guests talking, and a great project to work on with little kids.

Another innovative idea comes from the Queen of Butter herself, Paula Deen with these Sweet Potato Balls. Instead of the classic Thanksgiving dish of sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows, Paula’s recipe is an inside out version with gooey marshmallow in the middle.

And to finish off the meal, how about some homemade Pumpkin Ice Cream as an alternative to Pumpkin Pie! If you don’t have an ice cream maker, or just don’t feel like making ice cream (really, can’t blame you) just run to the store and pick some up such as Edy’s Pumpkin Ice Cream.

Have you found or made any inspiring, wow-factor dishes for Thanksgiving? We would love to hear about them!
