Great Food Ideas for Some Needed Thanksgiving Help
If you are looking for some Thanksgiving help, here are some great ideas from me and Babbleboxx to help with your meal planning. From delicious and easy to make bread and rolls from Bridgford Foods, to tasty bacon from The Baconer, to healthy pumpkin pie hummus desserts from Tribe Hummus, to mac and cheese with 4C Foods panko breadcrumbs, to the awesome I Cook in Color cookbook from Asha Gomez and Running Press! Every little bit helps when you are trying to create, in my opinion, the best meal of the year! There’s a lot of pressure to perform and to juggle many things. You want your guests to be happy and completely full.
This is why I love Thanksgiving. It’s all about giving thanks to God and your loved ones for the great things we all have in our lives. Sharing a great meal is the thing, not gifts or anything like that. I think this is just so important, especially in today’s hectic world. Take the time out to just enjoy each other, relax, and say Thank You.
Let’s talk a little bit about some great products and ideas for sides that will really stand out when the big day comes!
Parkerhouse Style Rolls Dough from Bridgford®
Are you looking for some great bread as the ideal complement to all your Thanksgiving day dish goodness? Fresh bread really makes the meal for me. There’s just something warm, comforting, and almost magical about freshly baked, warm bread. I think you would agree.
My suggestion would be to check out Bridgford Foods Parkerhouse Style Rolls Dough. This is delicious bread dough that you can find in your freezer aisle. You really don’t have to do much to these babies. The pack includes 24, 1-ounce yeast roll dough pieces in a bag. All you have to do is “pop” open the bag and bake them in the oven. Take them out of the oven and serve piping hot with some good, salted butter or olive oil (EVOO, of course). You can bake all 24 to serve a large group (i.e., Thanksgiving) or bake as many as desired. Note that the product should be used within 30 days of opening.
This is a good quality product, as Bridgford Foods Parkerhouse Rolls are Non-GMO, contain no preservatives, and are made with pure cane sugar. If you have some leftover, you can use them the next day to make leftover turkey/stuffing/cranberry sliders!! Hello! We love baking with Bridgford! Don’t you love my bacon, egg, and cheese sliders!!

4C Foods Homestyle Parmesan Cheese & Japanese Style Panko Breadcrumbs
We are a big 4C house, for sure! They are a staple, especially with big meals like Thanksgiving. Two of our favorite, go to products are their Homestyle Parmesan Cheese and their Breadcumbs! These offer some real Thanksgiving help!
4C Homestyle Parmesan Cheese
This is the real deal, 100% pure grated cheese. This is really cheese with no additives, no preservatives, no cellulose, no fillers, no nonsense! It’s only cheese, and that’s very important for me and my family. We put this delicious cheese on just about everything! This shredded cheese is wonderful and adds so much nutty and delicious flavor to every meal. It’s a must-have!
4C Japanese Style Panko Breadcrumbs
4C Japanese Style Panko Breadcrumbs are the king of flavor! These beautiful, freshly toasted breadcrumbs are excellent. These babies are delicate, light & crispy…the perfect coating for your favorite foods. 4C Panko Bread Crumbs are large and flaky and will make every recipe lighter and crunchier.We love making chicken cutlets with these beautiful breadcrumbs, but topping mac and cheese is just as good if not better! It adds crunch and texture to the mac, and all of your favorite foods. It’s also the best base for recipes when you are looking to really make a dish sing!

If you appreciate and celebrate other culture’s cuisines, then I have a really wonderful cookbook to share. I Cook in Color: Bright Flavors from My Kitchen and Around the World by Asha Gomez and Martha Hall Foose will delight your palate with so many awesome recipes!!

The author Asha Gomez is best known for her mix of cooking traditions from the American South and her homeland of Kerala in Southern India.

The book combines Asha’s warm tone, clear direction, and amazing photographs!
Asha’s prior cookbook, My Two Souths was nominated for a James Beard Award for Best American Cookbook, was the winner of the Food52 Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks, as well as the Gourmands Awards National Winner.

Tribe Dark Chocolate Hummus and Pumpkin Pie Hummus
If you have tried hummus, I think there’s a great chance that you really like it. It’s just such a tasty dip for pita bread, chips and crudite! I bet you didn’t know that hummus can also be an amazing dessert option as well. Yep, you are reading that correctly…Tribe Pumpkin Pie and Dark Chocolate Hummus is part healthy, part dessert! This is a better-for-you sweet snack or a dessert for kids and adults with only 6 grams of sugar per serving!! Yep, dessert hummus rules. This is the kind of Thanksgiving help we all need…more awesome dessert options!
Tribe Pumpkin Pie Hummus
This wonderful hummus is amazing, especially during this time of year! Autumn just called for the taste of sweet pumpkin with cinnamon and other fall spices! This is a true seasonal delight that goes great as a dip with graham crackers and pretzels. It’s also great as a pie filling!! I made a great pie using Tribe Pumpkin Pie Hummus as the filling and the kids didn’t even know it was hummus! They loved it and asked for more. Now they just eat it straight out of the container with a spoon!
Tribe Dark Chocolate Hummus
Who doesn’t love chocolate, right? This smooth, delicious hummus is a blend of chickpeas and cocoa that is a fantastic dip with fruit like strawberries or bananas or with snacks like pretzels and graham crackers. My family and I also use this as a spread to jazz up toast or pancakes or as a substitute for frosting.

The Bacon Lover from The Baconer
Do you love bacon? Ok, that’s ridiculous, I take that question back. Of course you love bacon. I love bacon, too. It’s just such a salty, crunchy, just about perfect food. If you or someone you love is a bacon lover, then you must continue to be friends with them. I also have the perfect gift for that person! It’s called The Baconer and these bacon boxes sport the #1 premium artisan bacon and hard to find cuts that are nothing short of amazing. They have a ton of great flavor, with some really great thickness and meatiness.
Exceptional quality and responsibly-sourced premium pork from small family farms rule here. The pigs are humanely traded and free to roam without farrowing or gestation crates and raised on a 100% vegetarian diet with no antibiotics or hormones. This is how you want your animals to be treated. It’s good for them and it’s good for us. Expert curing during a low and slow smoking process leads to rich, deep, chef-driven flavors and superior bacon. The meat is richly flavored and ultra tender. This is some really wonderful bacon.
This package includes 2 packs of Small Batch Bacon, 1 pack of XXL Bacon Steaks (super-sized strips cut at ½ in thick, 1 package of Smoked Lardons (bite size bacon pieces) and 1 package of Ground Bacon (100% pure, unadulterated coarse-ground bacon).
