Small Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes

If you’re celebrating a small Thanksgiving dinner with just a few people, as we will be doing, coming up with a menu can be difficult.

For the first time in memory, I won’t be cooking our Thanksgiving Feast as normal. Scaling back doesn’t mean we’re giving up the holiday spirit.

The following are a collection of easy recipes I’m using for our small Thanksgiving dinner. With a thought of serving 4, plus extras for leftovers.

Because it absolutely wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without those leftovers. I’m looking at you, pumpkin pie, for breastfast on Friday.

How Much Turkey Per Person?

Good Housekeeping has a great chart for determining how much turkey you’ll need.

They say: “If you’re buying a whole turkey, plan on 1 pound (uncooked) per person. For a boneless turkey breast, get ½ pound per person.”
