Thanksgiving Potluck Recipes

It’s one of my favorite times of the year…THANKSGIVING!!!!!! It’s the one day of the year where you are pretty much guaranteed to be happy and stuffed with ungodly amounts of yummy food. I have 3 thanksgiving potlucks to attend this year and I have no idea what to make!!! I am thinking some kind of soup (fall/winter always puts me in the mood for soup!) or macaroni and cheese. My actual Thanksgiving dinner will be at my Uncle’s house and my cousin requested that I make a stuffing or potatoes gratin. I am still undecided though. Anyways, here are some recipes I’ve been browsing through and will ultimately choose from. Hopefully they will help you if you are looking for a Thanksgiving recipe too!

My uncle once told me he had the BEST macaroni and cheese recipe from this restaurant in LA called Violet which happens to have the recipe online: Macaroni with Gruyere cheese, serrano ham, and leeks

Every time I eat creme brulee I remember how much I absolutely love this dessert! Well did you know there’s a pumpkin version?!


Who better to get some yummy recipes from than Martha Stewart herself…and now you can with her free Thanksgiving Cookbook download! I am eyeing the Thanksgiving foie gras dressing but that might be out of my budget and where would I even buy the foie gras mousse?

The LA Times has their own taste tested Thanksgiving recipes repository with tons of recipes to choose from.

One of my favorite new food blogs that I read is the A&M Blog which is all about recipe showdowns/contests. They try to discover the best recipe for something every week and of course they are doing Thanksgiving themed recipes right now including the best cranberry sauce!

Epicurious has a yummy sounding cornbread and chorizo stuffing that I am leaning heavily towards trying! Or should I make this garlic potatoes gratin? A lot simpler and I love anything with garlic in it!


As for the soup recipe, I am leaning towards a Wild Mushroom soup since boyrobot hates sweet potatoes and any types of squash which is the majority of Thanksgiving type soups. Plus I’m not sure if I’ll have access to a food processor.


So are you hungry yet???
