Creating a Thanksgiving Menu Everyone Will Enjoy

November 18, 2014

You’ve already invited the entire family and your friends to celebrate the most gratifying holiday of the year. Now it’s time to start planning your big Thanksgiving menu. With a wide assortment of people and food preferences coming together, creating the perfect spread can be a daunting task. Never fear, GO Veggie! is here to help you as you craft the ultimate Thanksgiving menu.

First, you’re going to need to choose your main dish, and turkey is the staple in many households. (Want to make your bird cheesier? Try this holiday turkey sausage dressing with GO Veggie! Lactose Free Cheddar Block.) As for vegetarians and vegans, chili makes a great substitute!

After you’ve decided on your main course, the fun begins. Choosing which side dishes make the list can seem like a lot of work since there are a ton to sort through. Try starting by sifting your way through the standards – mashed potatoes, stuffing and bread rolls. If your aim is to make it cheesier this year, how about sautéed kale with parmesan?

You’ve got your main dish and your sides. Up next: Dessert. Sure, apple pie is good, but add some cheesy goodness to your sweet treat to experience bliss. Deliciousness no one will be able to resist comes in the form of cream cheese pumpkin spice cookies.

Once you have your menu planned, it’s time to start thinking about the ingredients you need to create cheesy bliss. Consider any dietary preferences that need to be accommodated such as vegetarian, vegan or heart smart diets, as well as gluten or lactose intolerance.

The good news is that no matter who you’re hosting and what food guidelines you need to follow, your relationship with melty goodness can remain intact over the holiday season.

GO Veggie! cheese alternative is lactose- and gluten-free, free of cholesterol and saturated fat, and has half the fat and one-third the calories of regular cheese. Put that all together, and it adds up to this cheesy fact: You don’t have to contain your love of cheesy bliss this Thanksgiving.
