My favortie holiday of the year is coming up. Here are my top Thankgiving recipes to add a little bit of varitey to the traditional dishes. I love classic sides for the turkey day, but I also enjoy adding a few non traditional recipes. Below I have linked my 5 favorites that would be an amazing addition to any Thanksgiving meal:

1.The best potatoes au gratin - this recipe is a perfect addition to a Thankgiving menu. I make it earlier in the day and warm up just before serving. Follow this link for the recipe
2. Harvest salad with roasted butternut squash, pearled couscous and crunchy garbanzo beans - this Harvest salad recipe is packed with flavor, texture and crunch. It's a wonderful addition to any meal and is great on its own for lunch or even dinner. Great as a leftover too. Recipe is linked here.
3. Khachapuri - delicious Georgian cheese bread - no party or holiday meal goes without Khachapuri in this household. Since it take a while to knead the dough, and bake, I will normally bake large tray of Khachapuri day before the dinner party, and keep it in the fridge for next day to warm up. Here is the link to the recipe
4. Fall off the bone spare ribs - turkey is the star of the show on Thankgiving, but to add a little variety, these spare ribs are a perfect choice - delicious, tender, with sweet and spicy glaze. They are very easy to cook (although require quite a long time, but very low involvement in the process) and are an amazing dinner party dish to share with friends and family. Recipe linked here
5. Simple "not a classic" apple pie - This is my favorite, simple apple pie recipe that I got from my mom. It is really easy to make and always turns out delicious. Prep only takes 15 minutes, and it bakes in about 45 minutes. Here is the link to the recipe
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
