Easy turkey tenderloin and stuffing recipe. All in one pot for an easy Thanksgiving dinner for two!
One of my favorite meals to eat is Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce are all a must. When it’s just my husband and I eating dinner, however, there's no point in making a full-on Thanksgiving dinner. I love to make a one-pot version.
When it comes to this turkey tenderloin dinner, my Le Creuset French Oven is key. From start to finish, this one cast iron pot can make a full meal for us. Typically, I’ll make it for our Sunday dinner and best of all Thanksgiving dinner is served in 30 minutes!
Yes, it is possible to make a Thanksgiving dinner for two in just 30 minutes. Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I figured sharing this one pot Thanksgiving for two is incredibly timely. No need to skip your favorites just because it's a romantic dinner for two instead of twenty-two! Using turkey tenderloins makes it a super easy thing to do.
To keep it quick I use a packet gravy mix and a can of cranberry sauce to compliment my meal. If you time it just right, you can make mashed potatoes from scratch at the start of making your turkey. I have a few great recipes for mashes potatoes like my olive oil mashed potatoes and cauliflower and baked cheddar and chive mashed potatoes. Or you could try Julia's buttermilk mashed potatoes recipe too! Utilize vegetable steam bags to steam fresh green beans or asparagus—quick cooking and easier clean up or try this roasted broccoli recipe from Wendy.
Even if its just the two of you for Thanksgiving this year, you can at least enjoy an easy home cooked Thanksgiving dinner at home.
