What should I make for my church’s thanksgiving dinner?

My church is holding our annual Thanksgiving dinner Saturday night and I must bring a covered dish.

I want something simple, but delicious, with very few ingredients. A side dish, or even a dessert. More than likely I don’t want to make a dessert (everyone will be making a dessert).

What should I make? Something creative that nobody else would bring….. Nothing like mashed potatoes (somebody more than like is bringing them).

Thanks…. If you just want to give me a recipe or if you just want to tell me some ideas.

How about a fruit salad made with chopped fruit, chopped nuts and those mini colored marshmallows for additional color. Make a glaze for the dressing using orange juice and powdered sugar – bring to a boil, cool, and mix into the salad. It’s always been a hit at my Great-Aunt’s church and no one else ever brought it.

The other thing she always brought was strawberries dipped in chocolate.

What is a must at thanksgiving dinner?

I want to prepare an elaborate Thanksgiving dinner, please list some must haves(each individual has their own opinion)and hopefully I can get some great ideas. This dinner will be for 20 adults and 20 kids. So some kid friendly ideas would be awesome as well!

Wow, you have a large family! Kids tend to like sweets. Fruit Salad with whipped cream, sugared sweet potatos , pies (pumpkin and pecan are delicious!)

Some kids won’t want the turkey or will only want choice cuts – and since there are so many people – you could include hot dogs or hamburgers for the hard to please kids.

Adults usually enjoy cranberries, cheese, and wine. (That’s if you don’t have someone who will become wild with it. lol)

Everyone typically enjoys: Mashed potatos (regular), Green bean casserole, Corn Casserole, Rolls, Stuffing, and orderbs (including meatballs, cake bites, eclaires, etc.)

Remember a great Thanksgiving dinner doesn’t HAVE to be traditional.

I need a kid friendly vegan recipe for thanksgiving dinner? that non-vegan children will like?

any ideas?
we are a vegan family but my nieces are not we are celebrating thanksgiving and I need some vegan tips

Does anyone know of any holiday catering ideas? I am trying to plan Thanksgiving dinner and need some help.?

mixed fruits, stuffings, traditional food are all welcomed for thanksgiving. People want the traditional food because they’ll expect it, and they like to get what they expected. A flair and creativity doesn’t hurt either. So cool something that everyone likes also. Traditional turkey with a bit of garlic and butter and parsley would be great. Then for dessert pumpkin pie with ice cream. Know your guests and what they like to eat. Then make something they all like. Jello and pudding would be good for children
