Eat It Up! 7 Dishes To Shock Your Thanksgiving Dinner Guests


Celebrating Thanksgiving with Black American families comes with one golden rule: no experimenting allowed!

Though our viral auntie (above) BEEN warned us, some folks like to shake things up. If that sounds like you, then go ahead and slide down on your folks with one of these seven dishes in hand.

From salmon deviled eggs to macaroni remixes and bear legs, which of these would you add to your plate? And which would get you booted from the holiday festivities?

Keep scrolling to peep.

Thanksgiving Appetizer: Salmon Deviled Eggs

Another Thanksgiving tradition? The food is never ready on time! For those of us waiting until 9 p.m. to dig in, a lil’ appetizer wouldn’t hurt.

This week, these salmon deviled eggs by North Carolina’s MO’ FLAVA have folks ready to embrace big back season. Owners Chiqueta Osgood-Moore and Mickey Munday rattled the innanet after debuting their eggs with a glossy peach glaze sauce.

See if the savory treat is giving “pass me two or ten” in the post below.

Ditch The Turkey! Bring Some Grilled Bear

Yup, you read that right! Why settle for a crispy fried or juicy Cajun turkey when you can really cause a scene with some grilled bear legs?

Chef Bernard Hardison gagged the roomies when The Shade Room reposted a video of him cooking them thangs up!

Compared to a turkey leg, you, your auntie, your cousin, and your mama could smack on just one leg. In the chef’s cooking clip, he’s seen spraying the barbecued meat with a yellow liquid.

See for yourself below.

And For A Side? Remix The Mac & Cheese

Now, this lil’ change comes at your own risk! Macaroni & cheese is probably second behind the turkey in “most important” dishes at a Black Thanksgiving celebration.

It takes at least three references from elderly family members to get green lit for mac & cheese duty. But if you’re feeling dangerous this holiday, one of these remixed macaroni dishes might be for you.

First up, we got the “toss it in the pan” special. This recipe calls for putting all your standard ingredients in an aluminum pan before sliding it into the oven. Then, once all the cheese is melted, the milk evaporated, and the pasta seemingly cooked, toss some raisins in there.

Need a visual? Peep the crime scene — I mean the recipe — below!

Raisins too much? How about mixing two classics: mac & cheese and candied yams? The following two recipes elevate these sides from a lil’ touching on your plate to married with kids.

In the first, a baker created a mac and cheese and sweet potato pie. And yes, it looks exactly it sounds. See for yourself below.

Don’t feel like dealing with a pie crust? Well, this next recipe follows the “throw it all in the pan” method.

Decide for yourself if it’s giving “gimme a scoop” with the photo below.

Don’t Forget The Thanksgiving Desserts

And if playing with the main and side dishes wasn’t enough. This holiday folks are also getting creative with the desserts.

But don’t worry, we’re leaving the banana pudding intact. Instead, go for the two-for-one special with this sweet potato red velvet pie.

If you don’t feel like playing games with your oven, Baskin-Robbins has your back! The ice cream company recently debuted its limited edition ‘Turkey Day Fixin’s’ flavor.

It features a “combination of sweet potato and autumn spice ice creams mixed with honey cornbread pieces and swirls of Ocean Spray cranberry sauce.”

Happy Thanksgiving Roommates!
