It’s that time of year when friends and family gather ‘round to eat, drink, and give thanks. You may choose to spend your Thanksgiving watching football or participating in your local turkey trot, but if there’s one thing we will all be doing this holiday, it’s feasting! To help give you a head start on your plans for this year’s menu, we’ve created five scrumptious dishes that are sure to please everyone at your Thanksgiving celebration.
Veggie Cakes & Spicy Greek Yogurt Dip
The best part about making our Veggie Cakes is you can use almost any vegetables you choose. Pair them with this delicious Greek Yogurt Dip Recipe, and you’ve got yourself the perfect appetizer to Thanksgiving dinner. They also score big points as a game time snack during your favorite Turkey Bowl matchup!
Wheat Dinner Rolls
Dinner rolls are a classic side for Thanksgiving dinner; how else do you expect to sponge up the extra gravy left over from your mashed potatoes? This year we’ve baked a batch of whole grainWheat Dinner Rolls with our Kodiak Cakes All-Purpose Baking Mix. Even with six grams of protein, these whole grain rolls are just as light and fluffy as enriched white flour dinner rolls. We don’t know about you, but this is how we roll at Thanksgiving!
Sweet summer fruits may be nice on a hot summer day, but sometimes you just need something savory to snack on. That’s where our Mini Corndog Muffins Recipe comes in. Now, we know what you’re thinking, “corndog” and “healthy snack” are two terms you probably wouldn’t use in the same sentence, but we’ve put a healthy spin on this recipe by using our Kodiak Cakes Homestead Style Cornbread Mix to make each mini muffin a great-tasting source of whole grains and protein. The recipe also requires minimal prep time—simply mix up the batter, add it to a muffin pan, place mini sausages in each muffin, and bake for 8-10 minutes before serving up these easy healthy snacks. Just don’t forget to include your favorite dipping sauce!
For those of you who are pie fans, we have got a new treat for you—Blueberry Cheesecake. The crumbly crust of this cheesecake is loaded with twice the taste from two Kodiak Cakes products: Blueberry Muffin Mix and All-Purpose Baking Mix. Beneath the crust are layers of sweet blueberry filling, delicate whipped cream, and smooth cream cheese frosting. If you save room for anything this year, make it dessert!
If there’s one thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, it’s Pumpkin Pie. Just when you think you are too full for anything else, one bite of this Pumpkin Pie recipe and you’ll find that extra room in your stomach you thought was gone after that second helping cornbread stuffing. Who knew our Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Power Cakes would make such a great pie crust? But the taste of buttermilk and whole grains is the perfect complement to this pie’s pumpkin filling. Pair your piece with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream and you’ll find yourself clawing for seconds.
