3 Twisted Thanksgiving Recipes

Thanksgiving means many things to many people, but for many of us, the most exciting part of it is the FOOD we get to eat, the amount of food we get to eat, and the chance to get a little tipsy along with our uncles and aunties.

I would argue that Thanksgiving is the best part of Fall — not only does it lead into the Holiday Season (when Christmas music is finally appropriate), but you also get to indulge in those seasonal, mouth-watering treats you dream of the rest of the year without your mother yelling at you. Caramel apple cider, pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes WITH marshmallows (the most crucial ingredient), maple ice cream. Need I say more?

So, to give you just one more reason to be thankful this year, we’d like to present to you 3 twists on some classic recipes for the holiday season.

1.”French Toast” Napoleon with Maple Syrup, Pecans and Ice Cream

This non-traditional recipe flips this breakfast food on its butt, to make it a dessert appropriate dish. Our twist? Use Ben & Jerry’s Maple Blondie ice cream beneath those crushed pecans and add some candied walnuts for a delectable delight.
