10 Mouth-Watering Thanksgiving Recipes

10 Mouth-Watering Thanksgiving Recipes- Which new recipe are you going to try this year? Here are my top contendors. Hasselback Sweet Potatoes? Pumpkin Snickerdoodles? I'm BEYOND excited! passthechallah.com

Thanksgiving is in a week.  Yes a week!  For me, that means it’s finally time to stop browsing and pinning hundreds of Thanksgiving recipes and actually decide what the heck I’m gonna make.  (Although for me the browsing is just as much fun as the cooking itself.)

My family has our staple Thanksgiving recipes that I would never think of changing– turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy, and cranberry sauce.  But each year the food adventurer in me has to try something new, so I typically make one new side dish and one new dessert (sometimes two or three new desserts if I’m being honest).

Here is a roundup of the most interesting, delicious, unique, genius Thanksgiving-y recipes I came across.  Which one will you choose as your new dish this year?
