Enjoy a scaled down turkey with all the fixings this year

From stuffed turkey breast to Cornish game hens, there is more than one way to enjoy a scaled down Thanksgiving feast. Beyond main dishes, consider stuffing baked into individual muffin tins for easy portioning, and storage for leftovers. You can also scale back on mashed potatoes or sweet potato casseroles with baked and smashed potatoes that can easily be made for a smaller crowed.

Finish the meal with a delicious Thanksgiving pie or consider an alternative pumpkin dessert that breaks the classic pie mold.

This year, instead of spending extra money and time in the kitchen, consider these delicious Thanksgiving dinners designed for two.

Cornish hens aren't game birds, but small, young chickens — the French call them poussins — that are extremely tender and flavorful. You can also make this recipe with one 4-5 pound chicken, just cooking it at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes, then turning the temperature down to 375 degrees and cooking for an additional 30 minutes, or until the chicken is done. — Michael Chiarello

Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Bruschetta

Sgroppino

Made with only four simple ingredients, this boozy frozen beverage gives you a sweet taste of Italy.

Pizza with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

Giada gives you options here. You can make homemade pizza dough from scratch, but store-bought dough works just as well. Instead of spreading sauce over the dough, you bake fresh tomatoes right into it!

Mini Italian Club Sandwiches

This bite-sized sandwich is layered with egg, turkey, cheese and bacon. Each slice of focaccia bread is grilled for a few minutes until golden brown and brushed with pesto before the assembling begins.

Sweet Pepper Crostini

Crispy toasted baguettes topped with sweet peppers and melted mozzarella make an ideal appetizer for a crowd.

Raspberry-Cherry Chocolate Poppers

This treat gets its name from the cherry Pop Rocks candy that is hidden in the bottom of each ganache cup.

Roasted Carrot Hummus

Elevate your chip-and-dip game with this veggie-forward take on a party classic. Roasting the carrots first makes them tender and easier to blend with chickpeas, garlic and spices.
