15 Friendsgiving Recipes That Are So Tasty, You Won’t Miss the Turkey
In recent years, rounding up your besties to celebrate Friendsgiving has become one of the season’s best and most loved traditions. And with life continuing to inch more and more toward a sense of normalcy for many, opportunities to gather with family and friends have taken on a whole new meaning and significance. Just being around your loved ones is special, and Friendsgiving can be especially fun, since it allows you to celebrate in your own creative style without the added stress of awkward family talk at the table. That said, one thing about Friendsgiving remains unchanged from its Thanksgiving origins – the importance of food.
Friendsgiving food ideas are plentiful, and one of the great things is there’s no need to stick with traditional Thanksgiving dishes like mashed potatoes or green beans if you don’t want to. In fact, this year, only 24 percent of Friendsgiving celebrators are planning to have turkey, at least in part due to the climbing costs of the bird, according to a survey by Personal Capital. That leaves more room to try out a side dish, dessert, or drink with a little more flair. Keep reading for 15 Friendsgiving food ideas you can bring to this year’s get-together to shake things up and make the beloved holiday an unforgettable one.
