Thanksgiving dinners are often viewed as a joyous time for family and friends to gather and feast on turkey and stuffing. However, as we all know, life can sometimes throw a wrench in our plans. Sometimes, family members may fall ill, work and studies may call us away, or relatives may live too far away to visit. Or maybe, you simply need a quiet and peaceful Thanksgiving dinner at home, just you and your partner.

Now, if you find yourself in this situation, you may be wondering what to do about the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. It’s not like you can roast a whole turkey for just the two of you, right?

Well, fret not. There are plenty of ways to make Thanksgiving dinner special even if it’s just for two. For instance, you could opt for a smaller bird like a chicken or a duck. You could also make a roast beef or even a ham. Alternatively, you could choose to forego meat altogether and have a vegetarian feast with all your favorite sides.

Remember, the key to a successful Thanksgiving dinner is not just about the food, but also about the company. So, make sure to set the mood with some soft music, dim lighting, and maybe even some candles. Get creative and add some personal touches to your dinner table, such as place cards, a centerpiece, or even some seasonal decorations.

Lastly, don’t forget to express gratitude and appreciation for one another. Take a moment to reflect on all the things you are thankful for, both big and small. After all, Thanksgiving is not just about the food but also about counting our blessings and being grateful for the love and support in our lives.

Recipe Notes:

  • Timing is the hard part of this skillet meal.. Fortunately, turkey breast, Brussels sprouts, and sweet potatoes cook in about the same amount of time. The size of the turkey breast and/or sweet potatoes may affect cooking time. If you are using large sweet potatoesfor example, you can put them in the oven while you prepare the filling and other parts of the meal.
  • The filling doesn’t really have to be baked in the oven., but the molds and the toasted top make the meal more fun. If you choose not to bake the filling, toast the nuts ahead of time to give the filling flavor and crunch. You can also cover the filling pans with aluminum foil for most of the cooking time, then toast them at the end. Some people like to cook the stuffing right on the baking sheet along with the turkey, but you’ll need to start everything else and then spread the stuffing on the baking sheet during the last 15 to 20 minutes of cooking.
  • Could you switch input/output? other vegetables for the brussels sprouts, such as asparagus or green beans (both have much shorter cooking times) or baby potatoes (see Vegetarian Thanksgiving Skillet Dinner)

How do I store my leftovers?

Store everything in separate airtight containers in the fridge for 3-4 days or freeze up to 1 month.
