Everything… but the Turkey – Kirshenbaum Baking Co.’s Thanksgiving Menu

This year, we want to offer our locals something very special for Thanksgiving. We have curated a menu that includes ‘Everything!… but the turkey.’ ???? 

Turkey is the staple for any Thanksgiving dinner, but a lot of the time, the sides are the most memorable. We have had so many incredible family moments shared over a Thanksgiving feast filled with abundance and what seems to be endless options of sides, sauces, and drinks. To celebrate our first Thanksgiving on Elm Street, we want to share a collection of our family’s favorite comfort dishes with yours.

We chose these sides with your dinner table in mind. First, break bread with your friends and family with tender, buttery Squash Parkerhouse rolls. These orange-tinted rolls sit perfectly on a bread plate and require nothing but a gentle warming and some salted butter. They’re also a great nibble to satisfy rumbling bellies who can’t wait for the football game to be over and everyone to get settled at the table.

As everyone takes a seat, impress them with a piping hot Pancetta Mac & Cheese that’s topped with panko bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. It’s hot, gooey, cheesy, and crispy all at the same time – any turkey would be proud to be accompanied by this dish. Plus, it comes oven-ready, complete with heating instructions, and guaranteed to give you that premium restaurant quality from the comfort of your home. 

Keeping with autumn flavors, we had to include a Roasted Vegetable side that brings together our favorite fall crops. We carefully roast together sweet potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, and of course, brussels sprouts with fresh herbs, garlic, and extra virgin olive oil to bring joy to those vegetable lovers at the table. Plus, hearty vegetables help break up the richness of the rest of the meal and complement rich buttery sides like mashed potatoes or mac & cheese. 

There are so many sides to choose from, and we struggled to choose just a few. Then, we thought, “What’s a holiday meal without stuffing?” Sometimes the classics are the most beloved, and we didn’t want your feast to go without. Hence, we took our own housemade bread and combined it with a savory custard made with onions, celery, herbs, and organic broth to achieve a tender stuffing with that lovely crisp crust.

Last but not least is, of course, our favorite course! To complete your package is a choice of one of our signature pies. We have four options for you to select from; Key Lime, Apple, Pumpkin, and KBC Mud. We chose these flavors with the hope there is an option for every preference. We have the tart and sweet combination with the Key Lime for those who like things bright and fruity. Apple Pie is made with a twist by caramelizing all the apples before they’re baked into their crust, which gets you a lot more flavor and a lot more apple punch! We kept the Pumpkin pie classic and made sure all of our spices were right for those traditionalists who crave that classic Thanksgiving satisfaction. Lastly, we have our KBC Mud pie that is made with every chocolate lover in mind. This pie gets lined with a chocolate cookie crust, and then a chewy brownie layer is topped with dark chocolate mousse and a generous dollop of whipped cream. Everyone will have an opinion, so if you can’t decide, you can always add another pie to your order.
