10 Friendsgiving Recipes So You Can Eat, Drink, & Be Merry

And break tradition a bit.


Friendsgiving is such a sweet tradition to start, and it gives you a lot of versatility on the menu. Your grandma probably won’t like changing the traditional turkey and sides, but your friends will love trying out some fancy recipes, some easy recipes, and some cocktail recipes.

All good parties have a dip, and I’m obsessed with this whipped goat cheese with warm candied bacon and dates from Half-Baked Harvest. It’s the perfect one-hand appetizer while everyone mingles, and it will do well if you warm it up later in the night for post-dinner snacks.Half-Baked Harvest
For a second option on dips, this cranberry pecan cream cheese dip from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe can be sweet or spicy. Friendsgiving is all about just chatting and enjoying each other’s company, and an easy dip like this means less time in the kitchen and more time with your friends.Mel's Kitchen Cafe
OK, I love a roast turkey, but I want to get fancy with my Friendsgiving and serve this amazing prosciutto-wrapped turkey roulade with a pomegranate-port reduction sauce featured on Yummly. You can do a lot of prep work ahead and it’s seriously a showstopper.Olivia's Cuisine/Yummly
You need some traditional Thanksgiving dishes for Friendsgiving, and this cornbread stuffing from Damn Delicious is super easy to put together and just delicious. It’s great warmed up as leftovers, too, for those late night scrounges.Damn Delicious

Some side dishes just need to stay traditional, and I love this recipe for the best Instant Pot mashed potatoes from Pinch of Yum. From start to finish, they only take 30 minutes and are just the fluffiest, butteriest potatoes ever.Pinch of Yum
