The Perfect Thanksgiving Recipes for an Outdoor Kitchen

While Thanksgiving is known for the turkey, it’s really all about the sides. We all love the go-to mashed potatoes and green beans, but it can be fun to switch it up a little! Plus, if you have an outdoor kitchen, it’s your last chance to make full use of it til spring. Here are some fun Thanksgiving recipes perfect for an outdoor kitchen:

Celery pear and hazelnut salad

Want to add some more flavors to your salad? Chop up fennel bulb, celery, pears and hazelnut to start. Now for the fresh pear vinaigrette dressing, blend a ripe pear, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, lemon, and fresh tarragon. Top with raisins and shaved parmesan and try not to let your mouth water!

Green bean casserole 

Green bean casserole is always a good option, and it’s one of the best Thanksgiving recipes for an outdoor kitchen. After blanching your green beans and making the sauce, mix it all together with some cream, pop it over the firepit or into an oven and top with crispy onions.

Crispy leaf potatoes

Potatoes go well with practically anything, but crispy leaf potatoes add a little pizazz! Finely slice potatoes and smother them in butter, garlic, and herbs and crisp them to perfection.

Roasted brussel sprouts

Roasted brussel sprouts are one of the easiest Thanksgiving recipes for an outdoor kitchen. After chopping off the stems, toss them in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover it with foil if cooking over a fire or pop it into an oven.
