Thanksgiving is one of the most budget-friendly holidays to celebrate, thanks to no customary gift exchange and its communal feast. But whether you go to a dinner or host your own event, you’ll likely need to provide one (or more) dish or side to share.
Depending on your culinary skills, cooking can be challenging and some ingredients are pricey. Proteins and main courses are typically more expensive to prepare, and store-bought platters and sides just don’t have the same appeal as a thoughtful, home-cooked dish. It’s the perfect time to get creative and practice a new recipe for your loved ones!
For your wallet’s sake, we’ll focus on the less expensive (and impressive) sides, drinks and appetizers you can bring to the table. Check out five of the best budget-friendly recipes you’ll be proud to bring to your next Thanksgiving dinner.
