Unique Treats to Share at Friendsgiving
4 Creative Treats to Bring to Your Next Friendsgiving
Friendsgiving is a relatively new tradition where a group of friends gathers to celebrate Thanksgiving, contributing different dishes to the event. Some foods people commonly bring for Friendsgiving include crockpot turkey with cranberry sauce, chicken pot pie, and mashed potatoes. While these are all mouth watering ideas, there are several other treat ideas you can share on your next Friendsgiving that are both unique and delicious.
Pigs in a Blanket 2.0
Traditional Pigs in a Blanket are a staple at many parties, but you can make it more unique by adding a cream cheese dip to complement this popular finger food. Add some "everything" bagel seasoning to give your pigs an invigorating salty and garlic flavor, then pair it with some herbed buttermilk cream cheese for dipping.
Macaron cookies, wafers, and madeleines are great for pre- or post-dinner mingling. These confections are irresistible yet light, so you and your friends can eat as much as you want without feeling full and bloated afterward. A bag of these premium treats from 360 World Snacks is made with non-GMO ingredients and is low in calories.
Sangria With Fresh Cranberries
A popular Spanish drink at many Friendsgiving parties is sangria. This mild wine cocktail is perfect for social events where you want to serve alcohol without overdoing it. Sangria also pairs well with richer meat- or dairy-heavy dishes. Throw in a cup of fresh cranberries to give the drink some sweet and tart notes.
Roasted Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes
No Friendsgiving potluck menu is complete without mashed potatoes in the mix. But let's face it, traditional mashed potatoes are unoriginal and not very healthy. Give the classic side dish a health and appearance boost by using roasted cauliflowers instead of potatoes. Boil and mash up cauliflower, then add the same secondary ingredients, namely milk, butter, salt, and pepper.
There are many more unique treats and dishes you can bring on your next Friendsgiving. From instant pot Brussels sprouts and farro salad to gluten-free gourmet cookies from 360 World Snacks, make sure your dish is one of the highlights of your Friendsgiving festivities.
