Here we are, in a time unlike any other, facing a vastly different Thanksgiving celebration than usual.
My own family’s traditional turkey-day feast typically ranges between 16 and 48 guests. My mother always used to host, but I’ve taken over the duty in the last few years. It’s always a tremendous potluck gathering of my multi-faceted family, full of steps- and halfs-, ex’s and friends and significant others, aunts, uncles and cousins. Not to forget the grandparents and grandchildren. And even, for a few years in the 90s, a cousin-in-law’s parents and his siblings and their families.
In my family, this is the holiday everyone flies in for.
But not this year.
This year we are doing our part to curb the pandemic by staying home and not mingling with other family pods.
And, quite honestly, I can’t see myself cooking up a whole traditional Thanksgiving spread for just the four of us.
Luckily, I designed the “Holiday in One Pot” Glorious One-Pot Meal recipe just for times like these! This is the solution for when you’re not hosting a multitude for Thanksgiving but still want to enjoy the traditional meal.
As with every Glorious One-Pot Meal recipe, this one is designed to feed two people, so simply double or triple the ingredients to feed a larger group.
If you can’t find turkey tenderloins, turkey burgers can be an easy swap without compromising the flavor profile of the meal.
Let me know in the comments if Holiday in One Pot saves your Thanksgiving table this year!
