What Team Sprocket will be eating on Thanksgiving

November 20, 2019

If you have an email account, you’ve already started receiving emails about Black Friday offers. (If you don’t have an email account: hello and welcome. The era you’ve time travelled to is...pretty weird. Might want to consider returning from whence you came.) 

But before we start maxing out our budgets in the name of Black Friday deals, there’s something more important: Thanksgiving. Specifically, the Thanksgiving food we’ll be eating.

So what are our Sprocketeers cooking up for Thanksgiving this year? Some real gems, if you ask us:

Erica Younkin, Social Media Strategist: I love to make this at the holidays. Served warm, it's a nice alternative to pumpkin. 

Blueberry Crumble Pie

5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1 (9-inch) reduced-fat graham-cracker crust

¾ cup packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon grated lemon rind

1 (8-ounce) carton low-fat sour cream

¼ cup dry breadcrumbs

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1 tablespoon margarine, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place blueberries in crust; set aside.
  3. Combine brown sugar, flour, vanilla, rind and sour cream; spread over blueberries.
  4. Combine breadcrumbs, granulated sugar and margarine; sprinkle over sour cream mixture.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until set and crumbs are lightly browned. Cool 1 hour on a wire rack.

Aubrey Gordon, President: As you may or may not know, Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday because food. my sister hosts every year, and I always request her Balsamic Cippolini Onions. Time consuming, yes, but so fucking good.”

Jordan Laudadio, Director of Integrated Communications: I just made this sauteed apples recipe that was pretty bomb. I put it over oatmeal but it works over vanilla ice cream too. Tastes like apple pie!

Kate Moser Miller, Operations Strategist: I’m making Smitten Kitchen’s Butterscotch Pie. It’s so damn good and a nice non-fruit option, if fruit’s not your thing. (But also: who doesn't like fruit pies?!?)
