On Thanksgiving we always do brunch, and then the big turkey dinner. It's been that way for years.
I love making a big brunch and sharing it with whoever is coming over, and then saving the big Thanksgiving dinner for later on, giving me time to roast the turkey and prepare the dessert and sides without feeling stressed and needing to put together both breakfast and lunch.
So today, I've got easy entertaining tips and recipes for hosting a Thanksgiving Day brunch, whether you have family coming over, or the neighbors normally pop by, and the best part is that it's both kid and adult-friendly.
- Keep it simple: set aside a table close to the eating area where you can serve a buffet style brunch with a few simple dishes, beverages, and tableware for guests to help themselves as they like.
- Keep the menu to 4-5 items that are perfect for snacking.
- You don't need to go all out with decorations, just a couple of festive items to spruce up the table and keep it in autumn colors is all that's needed.
