If you can believe it, I’ve been creating video game food recipes going on almost three years now. That means I finally have enough to start making round-up posts like these!
Since I’ll be away with family this week, I won’t have a chance to make anything new. I thought about it for a bit and realized that I’ve already put out quite a few Thanksgiving appropriate recipes to date, so why not revisit a few of those!? That said, here’s my collection of 7 (actually 9) recipes that would be perfect additions to your table this holiday. Hope you like ’em! And be sure to let me know what you think :].
Now without further ado, let’s see what we got!
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim – Sweet Rolls
Get the recipe here! -> Sweet Rolls
These little treats (a hybrid of a bundt cake and popovers) are fun to make and fun to eat. The sweet icing on top is optional, but it elevates these rolls into the irresistible. Try them out if you’re looking to deviate from the usual thanksgiving pie scene, and don’t worry, they still leave your kitchen smelling divine!
Stardew Valley – Autumn’s Bounty
Get the recipe here! -> Autumn’s Bounty
There’s no better time of year for a dish like this! A mix of roasted pumpkin, sweet potato, and other Fall veggies, married with savory bacon and a touch of honey makes this an impressive tasting (and looking!) side dish that would be at home on any Thanksgiving table.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess – Good Soup
Get the recipe here! -> Good Soup
One of the three soups from Yeto’s mansion gives us our second pumpkin based recipe in this list. This is definitely one of the recipes I’ve come back to the most over the years because it’s just so warm and comforting. Make yourself a tasty stock to start with and this soup goes from good to great!
UNDERTALE – Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie
Get the recipe here! -> Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie
The butts pie has been a fan favorite for years now and I always love seeing pictures of people including it in their holiday spreads. If you want to fill your house with the best smell ever, this is the recipe to try. Goat Mom would be proud ]: )
Stardew Valley – Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Candy, & Stuffing
Get the recipe here! -> Cranberry Recipes
Woah! Three recipes for the price of one! (it’s easy when they’re all free!) Stuffing and cranberry sauce are always familiar faces at the Thanksgiving table so try out these recipes and I bet no one will even know they were inspired by a video game! Making all three is a great way to get the most out of that bag of frozen cranberries. Fresh work too!
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker – Deku Nut Cake
Get the recipe here! -> Deku Nut Cake
This was a really fun recipe to work on and it’s not really like anything I’d ever eaten before. Chestnuts are the titular Deku Nuts in the cake but there’s pear, coconut, and caramel in there as well. Check out the recipe if you’re looking to try something new. Goes great with coffee for a satisfying morning snack to enjoy before the festivities or the day after!
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tough Meat Stuffed Pumpkin
Get the recipe here! -> Tough Meat Stuffed Pumpkin
Can’t get enough pumpkin? This final recipe is like the older, beefier cousin of the Good Soup up above. It definitely makes and impressive centerpiece and you can even cover it with the pumpkin ‘lid’ to keep it warm on the table. A filling stew that also increases your defense, what’s not to love!?
