It’s officially Friendsgiving season! We’ve got some simple, but delicious, recipe suggestions that’ll help you WIN your upcoming Friendsgiving.


Alright, so maybe they didn’t trust you to make a main dish just yet, but this is your chance to prove everyone wrong. These apps are sure to be a hit with even the most stubborn of friends:

Smoky Pumpkin Hummus – This seasonal dish is different enough to stand out, but familiar enough that people will actually give it a shot.

Baked Brie Bites – Three words: warm…gooey…cheese! That’s it. 

Apple Cider Margarita – Who says your appetizer can’t be a delicious seasonal margarita? This one will definitely help loosen up the atmosphere from the very start. 

Mains & Sides

You’ve made it to the big-time! These dishes will definitely keep you in the A-team of your Friendsgiving for years to come.

Instant Pot Cranberry Sauce – Ditch the canned stuff for a year and you’ll never go back. Especially once you discover how easy it is to make it fresh. It’s just better this way. 

Hawaiian Sweet Roll Citrus Stuffing – It’s all about the stuffing! Everyone loves a good Hawaiian roll so why not use them in your stuffing. Sounds like pretty sound logic to us.

Blueberry Corn Muffins – Truly the best of both worlds. A blueberry muffin and cornbread come together to form one of the greatest duos of all time. 


How do you convince people to eat (or drink) more, after they’ve just stuffed themselves with Turkey and endless sides? Well, bring one of these desserts and we’re sure they’ll find room:

Pecan Pie Bars – Pecans + Thanksgiving = Classic. This delicious creation is a must for wrapping up any successful Friendsgiving meal. 

Spiced Apple Tarts – Basically a mini, personal apple pie. But, like opening a bag of chips, it might be impossible to eat just one. 

Easy Chocolate Bourbon Fondue – Put everything in a slow cooker and let it go…sounds like our kind of recipe.
