More About This Menu
If you have a favorite family Thanksgiving recipe, but you think it might be too much food for two, simply cut the measurements for the ingredients in half. Remember to adjust cooking times and temperatures accordingly.
All of the sides chosen for this menu are very easy to adjust for two people: Cut the green bean and cranberry salsa recipes in half, and bake one sweet potato per person. If you want to save time day-of, the cranberry salsa can be made the night before.
The turkey breast roulade recipe serves up to six; if you don’t want lots of leftovers for sandwiches, request a smaller turkey breast (around 2 lbs) from your butcher.
Make sure to prepare a third of the maple pot de creme for the perfect, just-for-two portion.
