Thanksgiving Menu for two includes easy, smaller prepared dishes that will feed 2-4 people, and you’ll have just enough leftovers for a few sandwiches!
We usually have a pretty large crowd when we host Thanksgiving, anywhere from 20-30 people. And I love it that way—the more the merrier! I like to include friends who may not be able to go home for the holidays and any extended family who wants to join us. In our old house, we had table seating for 18 plus 4 seats at the kitchen bar counter, so if we had more than 22 people we would set up card tables or other tables in various areas of the house. Once we just pushed a long, rectangular table up to the side of our dining room table and called it an extension. Throw in some folding chairs and you’ve got a place for everyone! The point is, people don’t care what your seating arrangements are or how fancy it is. Most people just want to feel included and loved and have an opportunity to stuff themselves with amazing food that reminds them of their Grandma.
With that said, I realize that not everyone has family bursting at the seams and sometimes you might just want to hang out at home with a special friend or two. So I set out to create a menu that would be just right for a smaller group but still include some classic Thanksgiving recipes. I narrowed down some of our favorites and created this menu that gives you enough variety but not an overwhelming amount of food. This menu would easily feed at least 4 but would be just right for 2 so you’d have some leftovers!

Of course, you could always mix and match from other recipes as well if you wanted to included some more favorites—just cut the recipes in half or plan for leftovers.
