9 Thanksgiving Recipes That Will Make You the Star of the Potluck

If you're on the hunt for Thanksgiving recipes for potlucks, family dinners, or other parties, you're not alone. Although it's definitely a huge weight off your shoulders if you don't have to host a Thanksgiving party, it can still be a little stressful wondering what to bring to Thanksgiving as a guest. Luckily, there are loads of crowd-pleasing Thanksgiving recipes out there, courtesy of creative food bloggers on social media. That's why we're celebrating some of our favorite dishes to inspire others for Turkey Day.

What to Bring to Thanksgiving Dinner

It goes without saying that every Thanksgiving party is different. A few hosts will specifically request that you don't bring anything, while others will be deeply offended if you show up empty-handed. In other homes, a simple bottle of wine or box of chocolates is the ideal gift. It's always best to speak to the host about his or her preferences well before the party, though even that gets confusing sometimes.

After all, many hosts will simply say, "Bring whatever you want!" or "Just make whatever you think people will like!" Well, that's not very helpful, is it? While it's safe to say that you won't be stuck cooking the turkey, you might be wondering whether you should bring a Thanksgiving dessert or a side dish to add to the ever-growing table. The good news is that either of those options can definitely work. You might also consider putting together a simple-yet-tasty Thanksgiving appetizer if you're really pressed for time. But no matter what type of dish you decide to serve, you'll want to be sure it stands out among the typical Thanksgiving foods at the party. After all, you wouldn't want to risk showing up with the exact same recipe that someone else brought. These Thanksgiving recipes from Instagram are the perfect answer to ensuring you bring a unique dish while still pleasing the whole crowd.
