Thanksgiving: Small-Scale Feast

Planning a smaller Thanksgiving gathering this year? You can still put on a fabulous feast--just scaled back a bit.

The Turkey

This menu hits all the high notes without requiring several days' preparation time.

These recipes call for turkey breast meat, rather than the whole bird.


Here's a soup that would have fit right in at the first Thanksgiving. It's an Iroquois soup featuring the "three sisters," corn, squash, and beans.

Pie Possibilities

These pecan tarts and pumpkin pie squares are easy to make--and easy to share when you're divvying up leftovers.

A Couple Experimental Menus

Feeling creative? No molded salads and green bean casseroles in these menus.

The Turkey Sandwich Menu
