On Thanksgiving we had my side of the family over early in the day for brunch. We started this tradition a few years ago when we were trying to figure out a way to get to both my side and hubby's side for Thanksgiving. My older sister and brother both have another Thanksgiving dinner to go to and we needed to make it early enough in the day that we had a chance to recover and to mix things up by not having all of the traditional foods. My younger sister used to work at JC Penny and would usually be scheduled early, like 3:00am the next morning for Black Friday so being out late in the day on Thanksgiving didn't work for her and her family. So having brunch works for us. This year was a bit different though. Many of us have gone gluten free so finding things to make was a bit of a challenge. I made Apple Streusel Cheesecake bars and they were a hit! My hubby smokes a turkey every year so we had that and blueberry and chocolate chip pumpkin muffins, stuffing, biscuits and gravy casserole, veggies, mandarin oranges and a coffee and beverage bar. It really was a lot of fun and everyone had plenty to eat. There were 17 of us this year and it was such a blessing to have my family over. I hope you enjoyed your holiday however you spent it!
Here is the recipe I used, I hope you try it whether you are gluten free or not, it is delicious!
