8 Thanksgiving Recipes Stoners Will Probably Love (And So Will Everyone Else, For That Matter)

With more states legalizing marijuana both medically and recreationally (looking at you, Oregon!), there will probably be a few more people sparking up come this Thanksgiving. I mean, a holiday that celebrates with a feast is kind of a munchie haven — so it's important to make sure you're prepared.

These recipes may not have been made by stoners, but I can tell you this much — stoners will most certainly appreciate them (as will everyone else, for that matter). Embracing all things rich, cheesy, crispy, gooey, melted, and fried, here is the perfect munchie-filled menu for a Thanksgiving feast. The times, they are a changing.

Fried Loaded Mashed Potato Balls

Forget standard, fluffy mashed potatoes this year, and pull out the fryer. Fried loaded mashed potato balls by Taste and Tell are a stoner’s dream come true. You can’t go wrong with anything that’s been “fried and loaded.”

Sweet Potato Pie Pastries

Sweet potatoes are the best. They’re sweet, they’re potato-y, and, like I said, the best. They’re even better when they’re wrapped in flaky dough, like these sweet potato pie pastries from A Beautiful Mess.

Cheesy Corn Bites

I know, I had to do a double take when I first saw this recipe too, but if these don’t satisfy your munchies, nothing will. Taste and Tell’s cheesy corn bites are quite the alternative to your normal plain jane corn. Drooling.

Double Bread Stuffing with Brown Butter, Bacon & Sage

Stuffing makes or breaks a Thanksgiving Day meal. Don’t let it break yours. This recipe by How Sweet It Is will surely satisfy anyone looking for an inventive and savory turkey filler. Made with cornbread, sourdough, parmesan, and most importantly, bacon, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Fresh Green Bean Casserole

Green bean casserole isn’t anything new; but when it comes down to it, it’s most definitely a stoner food. Take some crisp, some cream, and some crunch, and bake it at 425 degrees. Brown Eyed Baker’s fresh green bean casserole recipe ups the ante with its rich sauce made from scratch.

Turkey Pot Pie with Sweet Potato Biscuits

Why have turkey when you can have turkey pot pie!? Adding some sweet potato biscuits on top isn’t such a bad idea either. Just take a look at Back to Her Roots’ mouth-watering recipe.

Milky Way Rice Krispie Treats

Don’t forget about dessert time. No, seriously, don’t. The beauty of having the munchies is that your stomach becomes a bottomless pit. Your Cup of Cake’s Milky Way Rice Krispie treats are like rice crispy treats on steroids. (And they offer the perfect solution for people who can’t choose just one flavor fixation to satisfy… i.e. stoners.)

Cinnamon Sugar Banana Lumpia

Everyone likes fruit — especially when it’s deep-fried and covered with caramel and chocolate. Let your second dessert option be Damn Delicious’ Cinnamon Sugar Banana Lumpia.
