The Best Thanksgiving Brunch Recipes to Start Turkey Day off on a Delicious Note

Country Living Logo By Erin Cavoto of Country Living | Slide 1 of 41: There is no better way to prepare for a full day of eating other than—well, by eating. Next to dinner, Thanksgiving brunch is a crucial part of the holiday, especially if you host your feast later in the day. And if you have guests staying over for the long weekend, there will be lots of opportunities to use up your leftovers in these inventive dishes. Plenty of these Thanksgiving brunch ideas are make-ahead for less stress on your part, like the sticky, sweet glazed blueberry rolls or the delicious pumpkin French toast bake. If you’re hoping to stick to the lighter side to balance out your hearty Thanksgiving recipes, we’ve got you covered with recipes like a roasted carrot salad and a tangy citrus salad. And if you’re hoping to use up some of your extra Thanksgiving menu items (or give your family a sneak peek of what's to come later in the day), try out the Thanksgiving frittata or turkey sliders. Don’t forget to whip up some Thanksgiving cocktails too, since brunch pairs perfectly with a viewing of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Whether you’re brunching the morning of the big day or recovering on Saturday from your late night Black Friday shopping haul, these easy Thanksgiving brunch recipes will put the cranberry on top of your holiday weekend.
