Our Top 10 Thanksgiving Food Picks

While Thanksgiving is a time to think about and be grateful for everything that we have in our lives, you can't help but think about all of those amazing foods that go along with the holiday too. Just about every single one of those dishes would make up a wonderful meal for your rustic wedding reception. Today Country Jewell has decided to list our top ten favorite Thanksgiving foods to serve a room full of guests.

This tasty bird is pretty much the center of attention on a Thanksgiving table. It's a popular meat that most people love, making it a wonderful choice for a reception dinner. 

This seems to be the runner-up if you don't happen to like turkey. Both meats are perfect for leftovers too, if your guests don't gobble it all up! 

Mashed Potatoes
While this food happens to taste great just about any way you prepare it, there is something comforting about a big scoop of mashed potatoes. While it is delicious any time of year, it's especially nice during the colder months. 

Sweet Potatoes
These can be served up about every way that a regular white potato can, but sweet potatoes generally get the added sweetness of marshmallows, brown sugar, &/or cinnamon served with them. It also adds a nice burst of orange color to a buffet table.

This tasty sauce seems to be great on top of almost everything, especially Thanksgiving-type dishes. It can be served brown or white, or even better, offer both!

Green Bean Casserole
The Campbell Soup Company created this recipe in 1955, and it's been a Thanksgiving staple ever since. There's just something about the creamy combination topped with crispy fried onions that is irresistible. 

Broccoli Casserole
Here's another comfort food casserole that's a buffet favorite. Vegetables always seem to be a crowd pleaser when they are cooked up with the addition of cheese and other add-ins. 

One more side dish that the masses love. Even whipped up out of a box of Stove Top it's delicious, but our Knoxville wedding caterers can do a lot better than that! 

Dinner Rolls
You've got to have some type of bread, and there are tons of choices. You can go for a seasoned type to match the meal, or stick with good old white and whole wheat rolls. Croissants are always a popular choice too.

Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin is the most obvious choice for this holiday, but any type of pie served at a reception in our wedding barn near Knoxville makes guests smile from ear to ear. It's a great addition to the traditional wedding cake. 

When you host a wedding or any other type of event at Country Jewell, you are welcome to provide your own food, but we also have access to some very talented caterers in the area. There are packages listed for meals provided by Bradford Catered Events on our website to give you an idea of what they can offer. 

Holiday menus are great for giving you inspiration for what to serve at your wedding reception. Any one of the foods above is sure to please your crowd, but these ideas are just the beginning! 

A delightfully quaint Knoxville wedding
