Non Traditional Thanksgiving Recipes

If you’re anything like me, you love Thanksgiving for getting to spend time at home with family and friends, but not such a big fan of the turkey, gravy, and stuffing that’s typical at most Thanksgiving dinners. So, to make Thanksgiving a little more enjoyable here are a few non-traditional recipes to mix up your drinks, dinner, and dessert this Thanksgiving.

1. Mac n Cheese

This recipe uses Gruyere, Monterey Jack, and Sharp White Cheddar cheeses - YUM!

2. Baked Sweet and Spicy Chicken

This baked chicken breast tastes just like the sweet and sour chicken you get at a Chinese restaurant, but healthier for you since it's not fried. With honey, hot sauce, and sesame seeds it is the perfect balance of spicy and sweet flavors.
