Boston Boutique Hotel adds Style & Sophistication to Traditional Thanksgiving Classic Recipes

Turkey day is upon us. Boston is no stranger to this day of thanks, which originated on the shores of Massachusetts near Plymouth "rock." For many tourists travel in New England means the same predictable dinner. Clarendon Square Boston Bed & Breakfast has a few ideas have to freshen up your Thanksgiving Tradition. We took some help from our friend Martha Stewart to brighten up the classics with some sophisticated fare.

We are not canceling the Turkey, so stay with us here. Consider these fun recipes to accent your Turkey dinner on Thanksgiving & you might find these new dishes are the true stars of the show.

For a new twist on Stuffing try Martha's Brioche Oyster Stuffing that gives a wink and a nod to Massachusetts beloved Oysters. It is always a good thing to consider local & seasonal ingredients. Oysters not your thing? Our tip is to substitute the Oysters for Oyster Mushrooms & the Cream for Vegetable Broth. Vegetarian friendly sides are always a great idea on creating a versatile and appealing menu when cooking for a crowd.

Pumpkin pie seems to compete with the Turkey in almost every Boston thanksgiving we have seen. However, once you wrap your mouth around this bite, the scales may tip in favor of this pumpkiny treat. Updating a classic Thanksgiving icon like Pumpkin Pie does come with its risks, but nothing ventured is nothing gained. Try this delicious Pumpkin Flan in Tart shell for a Pumpkin Pie Recipe Alternative.

Pan gravies are a delicious addition to the Turkey & Mashed Potatoes. If you are a diner seeking options then a second gravy offering could be the perfect way to mix up your thanksgiving table. We love this Vegetarian Mushroom Medley Gravy from Martha. It can be enjoyed by all diners despite any dietary restrictions. A versatile gravy is a good thing. If you are a mushroom lover combine some portobellos, crimis, shitakes & marsala with a few extra ingredients & steps and you will have a fabulous condiment in no time.

Cooking not your thing? Hosting sounds horrible? Take the Thanksgiving weekend as an extra excuse for some rest & recovery. Clarendon Square Inn is the best bed and breakfast in Boston. Your host there will help you start the holiday season feeling refreshed & energized, perfect for the busy month or so ahead. Clarendon Square Boston bed and breakfast is located in downtown Boston hotel in the heart of the South End. That means plenty of fabulous restaurants nearby and no cooking required. Sometimes it is okay to give tradition a rest. Another great aspect of seeking out this urban oasis is Black Friday in Boston. A relaxing night sleep in Boston the night before the biggest shopping day of the year will give you an advantage when it comes to scoring the absolute best in holiday gifts. This Boston boutique hotel is located just steps away from Newbury Street, Copley Place, the Prudential Center & South Bay. Now that is a lot of shopping.

So whichever way you slice the Thanksgiving Pie, there are plenty of options for something new or exciting this year.
