When it comes time for Thanksgiving, most people focus on crafting the perfect turkey and sides. Don’t fall into this trap and neglect breakfast. If you start the day off with a hearty meal, you can easily last until your Thanksgiving dinner, considering most families eat that meal between a typical lunch and dinner time. To get your creative juices flowing, check out these breakfast recipes that are perfect for either Thanksgiving morning or the Friday after.
Cranberry Eggnog Cornbread Scones
Start Thanksgiving off with a sweet treat that combines some of your favorite Thanksgiving flavors. These cranberry eggnog cornbread scones have just a bit of eggnog flavor, enough to satisfy those who love the drink without turning away those who don’t. The recipe is very straightforward, especially if you’ve made scones in the past. It mostly uses ingredients you likely already have on hand, with the exception of the eggnog. The other items you need are just flour, cornmeal, white sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, and dried cranberries.
Pumpkin Pancakes with Nutmeg Whipped Cream
Pumpkin pancakes are actually delicious any day of the year, but they are particularly amazing on Thanksgiving, as they set the tone for a day of tasty food that stands out. To make this recipe even better, you can include nutmeg whipped cream on top of your pancakes. Consider making an extra-large batch of that whipped cream. Then you can put some on the pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving dinner, as well. To make the pancakes even easier to prepare, start with a pancake mix. Then add in ingredients like white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, and canned pumpkin along with the milk, eggs, and oil. The whipped cream just involves mixing together whipping cream with white sugar, ground nutmeg, and vanilla extract.
Sweet Potato Turkey Hash
This Thanksgiving breakfast dish is ideal for Friday morning when you will have turkey leftovers on hand. It is delicious and incredibly easy to make; the most time-consuming part is boiling the sweet potatoes for a few minutes so they become tender. To make the sweet potato turkey hash, you just need some leftover turkey, sweet potatoes, vegetable oil, Spanish onion, green bell peppers, salt, pepper, and ground cumin. Make a big batch of this so breakfast for everyone is easy the morning after Thanksgiving. If you have a lot of family over, this goes great with scrambled eggs on the side, something else you can easily prepare in bulk.
