Thanksgiving for us is usually a huge family affair with 30+ friends and family members but this year will be a lot different. We decided to have a simple Thanksgiving dinner for two at home but wanted to be as festive as possible! These recipes are going to help make that happen. With the easy Thanksgiving and holiday recipes on your menu, you can have a bright and fun meal without toiling away in the kitchen for days.

We separated the Thanksgiving dinner for two recipes into sections(turkey, potatoes, brussel sprouts, salad, etc.) to make it easier to plan!

Turkey/Chicken

The highlight of the feast, the juicy protein, the talk of the night. When you’re just cooking for two, a whole turkey might seem unnecessary so try sub-ing it for a whole chicken, or cornish hens.
