For any holiday involving food, TikTok users always have some creative ways of serving up delicious solutions to your dining needs. Thanksgiving dinner is no exception, and this year, creators have crafted the perfect recipes to entertain a crowd or to serve up by themselves. So get ready to dive in because we have seven dishes for your Thanksgiving needs straight from TikTok!
Smoky Carrot Hazelnut Dip.
One user pulls from "Middle Eastern and North African cooking techniques," as he states in the video, to make this delicious, sweet-savory dip that will add to anyone's Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving!) All you need are some chickpeas, sliced carrots, hazelnuts, olive oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a food processor.
Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes.
Move over main course, it's already time for dessert! These sweet, upside-down treats by @chefmilliemill are the perfect addition to your typical pumpkin pie or apple pie. Although Millie says you can use her recipe to make Pineapple Upside Down Cake rather than cupcakes, the cupcakes seem like a no-mess, no-stress way to put dessert on the table without worrying about cutting a cake.
"The Best" Homemade Mac n' Cheese.
Many people compete for the best mac n' cheese on the dinner table, but this recipe might have us convinced. TikTok user @mxriyum suggests using penne pasta instead of typical elbow macaroni because it's better for the flavor. With a little heavy cream, shredded cheddar cheese, pepper jack, white cheddar, and a variety of herbs, this recipe will wow just about anyone.
TikTok user @bysophialee explains that this is her "go-to" dish anytime she has a food holiday, and the ingredients collectively cost under $7! All anyone needs to do to create this masterpiece of corn is to purchase some canned corn, sour cream, corn muffin mix, and a little butter. Mix and pop in the oven for an hour, and you have a casserole!
What Thanksgiving isn't complete without a little turkey? TikTok user @nick.digiovanni explains to users the best way to make sure your turkey is both crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The key, he says, is to make sure you brine — and dry — your bird for the big day. Follow along with his instructions for a perfectly roasted Thanksgiving dish!
