A Once-in-a-Lifetime Thanksgivukkah Menu

Nov 17 2013 - 4:25am

Thanksgiving and Hanukkah, two glorious holidays, will never fall together on the same day again in our lifetime, so the day deserves a blowout menu, full of insanely delicious hybrid recipes. From challah bread rolls to sweet potato latkes to pumpkin sufganiyot with cranberry jam filling — these dishes will please even the most ornery Jewish grandmother.

Challah Rolls

Every Thanksgiving dinner requires bread rolls, and every Hanukkah needs challah, so combine the best of both words with challah rolls [1].

Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

For a simple dish that delivers in flavor, roast spicy brussels sprouts [7].

Pumpkin Sufganiyot With Cranberry Jam

Now, this is the real winner of the feast. Don't fry these pumpkin sufganiyot [8] (aka doughnuts) until the very last minute. Stuff them with homemade cranberry jam [9] just before you serve the feast. We promise there won't be leftovers.
