Thanksgiving is just two weeks from today! We all love to impress our friends and family with delicious, creative dishes. But who wants to spend all of their time in the kitchen? Today on Indy Style, I shared five easy recipes that you’ll be proud to serve at your Thanksgiving dinner.

 

Apple, Cranberry, Brussels Sprout Medley

This may be the easiest Thanksgiving side dish ever! The key to this Apple, Cranberry, Brussels Sprout Medley is the Season & Steam SuperShreds Superfood from Ocean Mist Farms. Simply open the SuperShreds bag, add one diced apple, some fresh or dried cranberries, and a dash of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon for seasoning. Shake the bag to combine the ingredients. Then cook it in the microwave for 3 minutes. You’ll find all the flavors of Thanksgiving in this warm salad!

 

Here’s another great recipe for Brussels sprouts! The sauce on these Beer-Braised Brussels Sprouts from Ocean Mist Farms resembles beer cheese. Yum!

Ingredients
1 bag of Season & Steam Quick Cook Sprout Halves
1 1/2 cans beer
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons heavy cream
Dried mustard, salt, and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon brown sugar

Directions
Step 1 – In a medium saucepan, add Brussels sprouts and beer. Cook over medium-high heat for 15 minutes or until the Brussels sprouts are tender.
Step 2 – In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and add flour, whisking for about 1 minute until well combined.
Step 3 – Drain the Brussels sprouts over the butter and flour mixture so the beer cooking liquid is added to the roux. Place the Brussels sprouts on a serving plate.
Step 4 – Add the heavy cream to the liquid mixture and whisk until smooth, allowing the liquid to reduce over the heat. The sauce should be as thick as cream.
Step 5 – Season the sauce with salt, pepper, and dried mustard.Step 6 – Pour the sauce over the Brussels sprouts and sprinkle with brown sugar. Enjoy!

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

Step 2 – Remove the sweet potatoes from the foil and put them in a food processor. Pulse until smooth.
Step 3 – Add eggs, evaporated milk, pumpkin pie spice, and brown sugar. Stir to combine.
Step 4 – Spread the mixture into a lightly greased 9×13 baking pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
