Thanksgiving is all about giving gratitude, breaking bread, and passing the gravy! This year, we wanted to share one of our favorite holidays with our friends at Food52, Tasting Table, Modern Farmer, DailyBurn and @NYC. While we can celebrate heartily on our own, it’s always more fun with your pals. We asked each friend to bring their favorite dish to our #FDriendsgiving and then share the recipe so that we can share it with all of you!
Take a peek at the dishes and recipes that were shared below. And if you make any of them for your Thanksgiving celebration this year, make sure to tag them with #FDFriendsgiving so we can see!
We hope you enjoyed our #FDFriendsgiving as much as we did! Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!
Butternut Squash Soup from @NYC (based on a recipe by Alfred Biolek and Eckart Witzigmann)
We kicked off #FDFriendsgiving with a perfect starter for your Thanksgiving feast: butternut squash soup from @nyc. Savory, not sweet, this soup is full bodied with hints of curry, paprika, and ginger.
What We Call Stuffing from Food52
Food52 stepped up their stuffing game for #FDFriendsgiving by incorporating challah and mushrooms in this classic dish. Get. In. Our. Bellies.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Squash, Apples and Candied Walnuts from Tasting Table
Brussels sprouts, squash, apples and candied walnuts… uh, yes please. We’re calling @TastingTable’s side dish “Everything but the Kitchen Sink,” and we were thrilled to have it as a part of our #FDFriendsgiving lineup.
The Turkey from FreshDirect
Da duh dah! The main dish is in the house. Whether your turkey is pasture-raised, #kosher, #organic or deep fried, we’ve got a turkey with your name on it. Now who gets dibs on that wishbone!? #FDFriendsgiving
Cran-Mallow Sweet Potatoes from Modern Farmer
Modern Farmer’s community relations director, Sarah, took two classic #Thanksgiving dishes, cranberries and sweet potato casserole, and brought them together in this delectable #FDFriendsgiving mashup.
Stuffed Acorn Squash with Wild Rice from DailyBurn
DailyBurn brought major side action to #FDFriendsgiving with their acorn squash stuffed with rice, mushrooms and goat cheese. (Thank goodness cheese showed at #FDFriendsgiving!)
Apple Pie from FreshDirect
And to top off a #FDFriendsgiving-filled day, we served an American classic: FreshDirect apple pie.
