Thanksgiving 2021 Menu Ideas
We all know that the main star of the evening is the Roasted Turkey. Chef Yllan will be sure to cook the Turkey to perfection, golden brown on the outside, moist on the inside and infused with all the right herbs. Chef Yllan recommends serving the Turkey with Homemade Cranberry Sauce, Stuffing and Gravy.
For the sides, Fluffy Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Butternut Squash with Rosemary and Thyme, Roasted Brussel Sprouts, French Beans with Caramelized Shallots, Roasted Rainbow Carrots and a Winter Kale Salad. And if that’s not enough, Chef Yllan also recommends Homemade Cornbread, Popovers or Biscuits with Salted Whipped Butter.
