It’s officially three weeks until Thanksgiving and I’m in holiday planning mode. If you’re a long-time reader, you may remember I host an epic Thanksgiving at my house. Most of the Hubs and my family converge on our house for Thanksgiving in the mountains. It’s something I look forward to every year. We go a little overboard on EVERYTHING… but that’s how we roll.
The hubs cooks two turkeys and I cook a HUGE assortment of sides. It involves MANY trips to the store, lots of planning and lots of cooking. Since I know how much work is involved in Thanksgiving, I’m trying to help you out this year with some fresh ideas for your menu. I’ll be sharing some of them in the coming weeks, plus putting together a great resource for all the holiday friendly recipes on Running in a Skirt.
Are you hosting this year? Make sure to check out my guide to hosting Thanksgiving!
So without further ado, let’s start with these Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes recipe. They are like my basic sweet potato bites, but kicked up a notch for the holiday with maple AND cinnamon.
If you’ve decided to cook a healthier version of Thanksgiving at home these are a great options! They are cooked in coconut oil and sweetened without any sugar or butter.
If you’re looking for the classic sweet potato casserole though, try this one.
In all seriousness, what is Thanksgiving without a sweet potato? These really are a great option. If you are feeding a smaller group, these are also really easy to throw together and serve on the fly. Yet, with the extra seasoning they feel festive.
You could also mix these together with other roasted vegetables, to put together a healthy and simple side dish for Thanksgiving.
Anyway you serve it, it’s bound to be a crowd hit and no one will know how little time you actually spent on it.
